My tweed makes are all based on a TNT pattern Vogue 8890 and V7488 Honestly I love tweed as it’s so easy to work with, to shape and steam. These makes for my sons filled my heart with joy and their delight to wear them did also. But I learnt a very hard and painful lesson with the beige suit. Home pre shrinking with the London method (wet towel) was not enough and on its first trip to the dry cleaners it shrank!😳😳😰

I’m popping my new tweed buys into the cleaners for a good steam press this time. It’s not a mistake if you learn from it!
