Description

I had bought this lovely wool from a shop in the UK, who got it from a retired tailor. It is lovely fabric so I had to wait until I perfected my fit on trousers.
The pattern is great, and I have tweaked it to almost perfection. I love it!

      Thank you and I know, how lucky! And now I wish I had bought more. I did get some Liberty silk from the same spot though ;)

      Thanks Rita61. I do love the fit on this pattern, heartily recommanded as a base for trousers.
