Pendleton Wool + Oliver +S pattern = pretty!
Here are two pieces of wool I purchased from Pendleton Wool, just a few minutes before the Expo was over. Rather than thinking what I would like to make with this wool, I am taking my cue from Pendleton and the display they had at Expo. They used the Oliver + S Sunday Brunch pattern and made the jacket from the plaid and the skirt from the solid wool. I loved the colours and Olivia liked them too. So, if all goes well, that is what we will do with these pieces of wool. Pendleton had a great price on their wool at the show and on Sunday, there was a bonus coupon for an additional 5% off. The price of the wool pieces were very reasonable. My wool is washed and ready to dive into, when I have a bit of time. ;)
I picked up these two pieces of light, dress weight wool for $5 a yard, plus 5% off. I had just looked at this fabric the day before and it was much more expensive. I lucked out on the last day of the expo. Nice wool for my 'stash'. :)
More on expo tomorrow.
