I bought this lovely pure wool plaid for Mark when we were in Stockholm, but washed it in water that was slightly too warm and it felted a little bit. This didn’t seem to be too much of a problem except that the fabric went out of square and I had to do all kinds of shenanigans to line up those pesky checks.
This is my old favourite pattern, KwikSew 3422, and the only thing I had to do was a join in the back so that I could get the sides to align due to the wonky nature of the fabric. I actually put a pleat in the back but decided to hand stitch it up just before we left for the airport to go to Singapore.
In a nutshell: Pattern is Kwik Sew 3422, fabric is pure wool check from Tygverket, Stockholm. Pants are the ones I made for him to go to Colombo, Sri Lanka. Location is Perth International Airport, Qantas lounge, this all sounds very cosmopolitan, doesn’t it?
