Hi darlings! Thank you so much for the comments on my post yesterday, I am happy if it helps even one person to feel encouraged so having reached so many is just an even bigger blessing!
I have had this piece of fabric in my stash since my trip to San Fran earlier this year and I couldn't wait to make something with it. I knew that I wanted to make a blanket inspired jacket and since the plaid is a large scale plaid it was easy to match up. I choose to work with Vogue Pattern 8696 and reviewed it below and on PR.
