Hi you crafty bunch!
Next up in the covid isolation fabric stash sewathon!!
Oh my… so I don’t usually make woven stuff as I find it really hard to make and wear non-stretch stuff due to my plus size, there’s a lot more … body movement, buuuuuut I fell in love with this yellow plaid fabric so I figured I’d give it a try! Plus I did make a couple of muslin trials first to make sure I could get the right waist fit
Hubby says the fabric makes me look like Rupert (English comic strip character originally from the 20s)
Hubby also says that I have resting “smelled a fart” face… I can see what he means in this photo…
Anyways, surprisingly they came out really comfortable for a woven non-stretch waistband so I’m really pleased, and with the pleats etc there’s plenty of room for movement too. I used a really nice chunky silver zip with big O-ring pull, but you can’t reeeeally see it from the photo unfortunately.

Plaid twill fabric was from eBay and I’ve just noticed that have the same in a cute pink colour too… ooooooh!!!
Hope you like it!
