The Ultimate in Cozy Couture

Hello Sewing Friends!

Today I’m happy to bring you some fabulous new cotton flannels starting with the four featured above in Vogue 1817— GRAY TIME OUT, SHERLOCK HOUNDSTOOTH, SMOKEY MOUNTAIN PLAID, and CECIL HERRINGBONE.

It’s a double-garment day! Scroll down to see Vogue 1750 in REDWOOD HERRINGBONE with tres on-trend cuffs featuring tiny dots. I love pattern play with plaids so here are some helpful tips for matching plaids in a single garment.

To figure extra yardage, multiply the repeat by the number of main pattern pieces. For example, if the repeat is 4" and you have 4 main/large pattern pieces, you would need a minimum of 16 extra inches. To match plaids, cut single thickness, starting with the main pattern piece at center front or back, placing CF/CB centered between (NOT ON), a dominant color or line, then cut one piece at a time, using the cut out piece as a pattern piece for the next, flipping, so you get a left and right side. I draw the plaid on the pattern pieces to match at side seams and notches on sleeves. If the plaid is unbalanced, cut as for a nap. Sew with a walking foot to prevent shifting. Some pieces like pockets, yoke and collar can be cut on the bias.

If you’ve never considered yourself a flannel person, these exceptional quality cotton flannels are worth a look. Brushed on both sides, they are the ultimate in comfort couture.

 Happy Sewing!
