If you like wool be sure to visit Portland, OR! Since Pendleton is based in Oregon, you can often find amazing vintage wool at local shops. I found 2+ yeards of two different plaid patterns. The blue is c1950 and the orange is c1970.
I made a Colette Peony Dress out of the blue and simply adore it! You can view more pics on my blog. I’m making a men’s button up out of the other plaid.
I will note that these pretties did not smell so pretty. I had to wash them, then air dry them and let them sit in the garage for a week to fully cleanse them of their musk. But now they’re wonderful! And they only cost $24 apiece 🙂
