So confused about the answers of Aim High 3 Teacher's Book

Unread postby Lulu » Sat Jun 17, 2017 7:13 am

Hi, I'm so new teacher. A few days ago I encouraged my students to do exercises about outfit adjective order. They followed the rule in the Look out! box and wrote the sentences ; 1) He's wearing a short-sleeved plain T-shirt. 2) He's wearing a long-sleeved strippy shirt. 3) She's wearing a baggy plain trousers.

The answers of sentence 1 and 3 in Teacher's book are : He's wearing a plain short-sleeved T-shirt, She's wearing a plain baggy trousers.

I wonder why pattern (plain) can come before shape (short-sleeved, baggy) while sentence 2 it come after shape

Please suggest me how to explain this to the students clearly.

Looking foward for suggestions. THANK YOU
