Herringbone question

    I have a wonderful herringbone wool. I have never used herringbone and I have a question about how I should look at this pattern.

    I am not sure whether I should look at this pattern as lots of “V” going across the fabric, or I should look at this pattern as lots of upside down “V”, like an arrow that is missing a straight line in the middle, going across the fabric.

    Thanks for your help!

    I made these for my baby girl https://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/17417326175/in/album-72157649752898567/ ( not O+S, blush) and I pointed the Chevrons downwards even though they were across the grain on the fabric.

    I made my older daughter a coat from the same cloth ( I purchased a bolt) and I did the same. Both garments are wearing well with no sign of stretching or bagging.

    I hope that may help?

    xx Nicole

    Thank you @shokomoo, you are sweet. We are campaigning Liesl to make a dungarees pattern.
    My sewing gal-pal @ock-du-spock tracked down the same pattern in a larger size.

    It is lovely fabric.
