Plaid Collection

Added May 9, 2010

by sabinaholtby-1

Newport News, Vi...






I fell in love with this plaid!
Matching plaid is awful! But SO worth it! I found this wonderful vintage pattern with pleats on the front and I found that if I put the plaid on the bias it made a wonderful patter. Pleats on the bias is also awful, but also worth it.
I get the most comments on the jacket, which was, BY FAR, the easiest part.
Enjoy my frist collection, I hope to do many more!
