Kwik Sew

After a short visit the the Victoria Sewing and Crafts show yesterday I had some inspiration to make something.

Its been a while since sewing a piece of clothing, there are many started projects but a lot of things end up un-wearable and unfinished. I picked up the Kwik Sew 3758 pattern and found some fantastic grey organic cotton twill at Gala Fabrics here in Victoria. After a few alterations to the pattern here is the result.

Kwik Sew 3758

Alterations include:

  • an entirely different slimmer skirt. On my first attempt I used the pattern’s skirt a size smaller than I was sewing but still it was VERY unflattering.
  • shortening the sleeves, I also had to slim them down too.
