I decided it’s time to finally sew my very first commercial pattern (Kwik Sew 3283). I chose the easiest pattern available…just 2 pieces for the tunic, omitted the scarf and belt, and basically just sewing rectangles together. I decided to make various lengths, and this is the short version. It’s also my first time sewing with knits jersey in dressmaking!
Pattern: Kwik Sew 3683
Size made: XS (XS – XL included)
Pattern pieces: 2 (omitted scarf & belt)
Fabric: Jersey knit, 1m length, bought from Lincraft
New Technique used: First time using commercial dress pattern; Shortened pattern
Modifications: Omitted scarf and belt, shortened hem
So I survived sewing stretchy rectangles together. That’s the first step, right? I’m just learning the most basic of things. Like, adjusting tension on the overlocker. It was quite a nightmare!
