I cut the pattern piece for the front into 3 pieces and added seam allowance. Then I used 3 different orientations when placing the pieces on the fabric before cutting. It is really handy if you draw arrows on the pattern pieces first, to match the direction of the stripes.
It is a pretty cool effect, and a complete copy of what the fabric & pattern designer Sharon from Zonen09 has done, so I can't take credit for the idea. But I'm still very happy with the result.
It should keep him nice and warm this winter.
So have you sewn something for your husband or partner yet?
