Kwik Sew 3422

I made this shirt for my son for a recent trip to Mexico. I made a size large and the fit was perfect. I recently took a shirt sewing course with Ron Collins (a Canadian sewing guru) who does shows and videos with Sandra Betzina. Learned so much from him, well worth the cost of the course.

Sian Top - Stylearc

I made this top from two fabrics. The next one will be of one fabric. I made it without any changes and it fits perfectly. Have a few more Stylearc that I want to make.

Another Sutton Blouse

Sutton Blouse - True Bias

This has been one of the easiest blouse pattern that I have ever used. No buttons, no facings. Fit was right out of the envelope. I have made three so far and ther will be more. The first one was a muslin out of unbleached cotton so it really wrinkles. I did this to check the fit. The two above are from fabric from Fabricland.

I made this jacket for my son. DH is modeling it as son is away at work. It is a fleece and I lined it with a grey (almost cotton) to give it a bit more warmth. I also used this pattern to make a black jacket for DH but didn;t take a pic of that as black does not photograph well.

I have made this sweater with fabric that has been in my stash for ages. The only changes I made was to shorten the bottom length by 1 inch.
