Seamwork magazine recently came out with their menswear addition and I was quite taken by the idea of making some clothes for my partner. I thought the Paxson was definitely his style so showed him the pattern photos and asked him what he thought.
"Love that mustard colour" was his response.
"But what about the sweater itself?"
"What do you mean, it's mustard, it's awesome."
So this is obviously not a mustard sweater. I did set out and visited 2 fabric stores in the search for some appropriate mustard fabric. Admittedly they were across the street from each other, but it was a search. I settled on a nice mid-weight wool sweater knit in olive. Any colour regularly worn in the 70's is on my partner's to wear list so I figured I was safe. Plus, now he matches our couch.
