My favorite tartan. Your creativity in the layout is very original and I'm sure this will be a favorite for years to come!

Very nice dress. Excellent job of lining up the plaids. I'm sure that took quite a while to cut out.

This appealed to me at once! Plaid in Fall, how wonderful. The mixing of grain lines made what would have been a nice dress into an interesting and eye catching dress. Well done.

AhÖ Youíre in Australia, purchased from US and itís a Scottish tartan! You did a bang up job with the matching and it was smart of McCallís to have you cut separately. I have a plaid which I bought from a woolen mill in Vancouver, BC. Itís my oldest, unsewn fabric. I didnít buy enough to match. Iíd been wondering what to do with it. Problem is, itís asymmetrical. I love the combo in yours so might dig mine out to look again. Thanks! I assume the little bra icon on the pattern means McCallís has provided bust adjustments.

Love your use of different grainlines, it really emphasizes the plaid!
