I'm thinking about wearing madras pants, inspired by moonrise kingdom. Any thoughts, especially on bleeding madras?
Patchwork madras is patchwork -- it's squares of madras stitched together. I like madras pants, but I like that whole look. If you like it a lot, then madras pants are a good choice. They're a big step.
Thanks, any favorite brands?
Some look like one complex pattern, while other's I've found really look like a bunch of patterns sewn together
Right, I agree. That's what I said (maybe inartfully). If it's not sewn together panels of madras fabric, it's not patchwork madras.
