Hi everyone,  new content is coming, I promise.  I have plenty of stuff to update you on.


First is this super simple Kwik Sew sleeveless tee from  Womens pattern 3277.  This was made from Sophia knit in black and red.  I decided to use the black just for a little fun and contrast.  This is to be a sample for a class at work.  We shall see if it actually happens….so far no one has signed up.  It was definitely a challenge to come up with a project that could be completed in 3.5 hours of class time for relatively new sewers….that would accomodate both misses and plus sizes.  If I am teaching someone how to make clothing I want them to have a reasonable chance at finding a suitable pattern that will fit.

Kwik Sew is an excellent pattern company catering mostly to the intermediate sewist, and folks who want lingerie or athletic clothing.  Unfortunately Kwik Sew as a company has not yet realized how badly their photographed models, and artists renderings of their patterns portray their patterns.  They have very little current styling, and most patterns tend to look pretty frumpy in the pattern books.  Look beyond this and their can be marvelous rewards.  They have excellent swimwear, dancewear, outerwear, and lingerie.
