So I have lofty expectations out of this lowly tweed. Finally I'm at the armholes of the fronts that I'm doing together. Tweed will have a shawl collar. It's got shape and it looks as tho it will fit mine. Certainly I will find the most perfect buttons ever for this. The sleeves will be straight with perhaps three to four buttons closing them at the wrists.
I can see it now -- I'm standing there waiting for the metro in my dark chocolate slacks, perhaps a periwinkle blue collared blouse, my brown boots, and of course, My Tweed. It's cold, even windy, but I don't care. I'm toasty in My Tweed. Reality check to follow in a month or two.
