Kwik Sew 3880

After a day of shopping with Taylor, I decided that I wanted one of those cut out shoulder style tops. Instead of paying the insane amount of money that a few stores were asking, I decided to find a pattern (or modify one) that would work to create this look. That’s when I found Kwik Sew 3880. It’s perfect: it’s easy to sew (and great for beginners, in my opinion), has a flattering shape (even though the sleeves are ‘big’ the shirt is fitted so you don’t look like you’re wearing a tent), and comes together very quickly. I used a ‘mystery knit’ from my stash (one side has a rayon-ish look, the other an extremely soft almost suede-like cotton on the other and it bleed all over my hands and machine – if anyone knows what it is, I’d love to know) for my first version, but I’m contemplating making my next one out of a fabulous and funky mesh that I recently purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics…. I can’t wait to try it again!

FYI: Since this post is so late going up, I’ll be putting the project info on the sidebar later on this evening.

    Ooh! I have a very similar Burda magazine pattern cut out and ready to sew (though it’s on hold for a few days), so this makes me feel more “in vogue”. Thanks for sharing your version, it’s very cute on you! 🙂

    Man, could they make the captcha codes just a bit harder to read?! Sheesh!

    You really inspire me! I can’t wait to log on every day to see what you have made! I love the top. Do you have a fabric store very close or do you somehow download the patterns? I’m so impressed that you are able to see something that you like and immediately recreate it at home!

      Thanks, Pam! I have several that are fairly close, but if I can’t find it local, I wind up shopping online – most stores ship fast, so I never have to wait too long! I do some patterns that are downloadable as well, but I seem to like the paper patterns better than having to do all that taping!
