It took a long time to find a tartan that I was happy with and in the end I used a Scottish wool rug as well as a metre of melton cloth.
The pattern is the most modern I have used for several years and was very easy. It has a slightly flared skirt with a box pleat at the back and a fitted bodice with darts at the front and princess seams at the back. I made two changes, the first was to add a fourth button, the pattern suggested hidden press studs below the waistline but I wasn't keen on the idea. The second to make a stand up collar again very easy by simply measuring the length of the neckline and cutting out a straight piece 1.5 inches deep.
Now all I need is cold weather.
