All’s right with the world

Sometimes I wonder if pattern matching has become a dangerous obsession with me.

But there’s something about placing and matching patterns that’s strangely reassuring. When that 3 point yoke was all stitched into place onto the back of the shirt and I saw the peacock feathers line up, I knew that all was right with the world.

Even more so when I realised that I had made the pattern run all the way down from the collar to the back of the shirt, completely by accident; I had already done the same thing with the button band.

Pretty soon I’ll be matching patterns in my sleep. Now that’s obsession!

This is Liberty’s ‘Hera’ – I wrote a little bit about the history of the print a few weeks ago.
