I've been dying to make a Pendleton vest with a shawl collar from this inspiration:
Here are my pinned cuts on the dress form without the shawl collar. Pendleton has named this fabric Evening Star. One piece I cut slightly short. The vest is 2" longer than the pattern calls for I have a long body -- so the shorter cut may not be a problem, I can crop it without problem due to the extra fabric.
Oops, the diagonals don't match. But I do like the idea of the diagonal for the shawl collar -- any opinions out there?
But, I called Pendleton woolen mills and problem solved! They are sending me another yard (discounted). Here is their Website and Blog -- definitely worth a visit if you are in the Portland area. At the same time I went ahead and ordered the felted binding -- that would be the easiest finish. I also orders some Rancho Arroyo Aqua -- under a half yard in case I need it too. Note to self: Order more fabric than you need with prints.
