Plaid Hawthorn

As usual I’m rather late to the pattern love party, but here is my Hawthorn.  I wanted a cold weather version, so made this from a brushed cotton (this did mean that all the layers in the collar and facing became rather unwieldly).  I found aspects of the pattern challenging, but I love the result and will make another, perhaps in a thinner fabric.  There are more details on my blog.

    Love the plaid! I have some pinstriped shirting in my stash waiting to be made into a Hawthorn. Can’t wait until I get some time to put it together!

    Just perfect!!! I know what you mean about using a thicker fabric as my last hawthorn is made of cotton sateen. But it is so worth it for a cool weather dress.
