What should I do with this giant plaid?
I was given this giant plaid fabric a long time ago and never knew what to do with it. After reading the recent article about working with big fabric patterns, I thought about it again but I’m still not sure what to do with it. It’s 45″ wide and 4yd long. I’m slim built so I feel like the pattern, and interest, will be lost if I try to use the fabric on the long grain. I was thinking of making a short sleeved shirt with one of the wide plaid stripes going across my mid-section starting at the bust. I’m small busted, so emphasizing that area looks good on me.
Any other ideas for me?
I suppose I could try to make a table cloth or duvet cover rather than clothing so you can see the large pattern. I could use both of those things as well.
