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.
