KWIK SEW K3915 View A
Back in the Summer (remember when the sun was shining?) my friend and I took a bus ride to the Goldhawk Road. We browsed several shops and bought 3 lengths of fabric. I have made up the 2 lengths that I purchased and since then this (3rd) length of Charcoal Grey printed jersey has sat in my stash waiting for the overlocker to be threaded up with dark thread. That day has dawned and so this morning I cut out version A of Kwik Sew K3915.
I have previously made up this pattern in an ‘autumnal print’ for me but this version was to be for Adrienne. Stitching was fairly straightforward. I was prepared for the ‘fiddly’ part of the gathered collar which all comes together at a V-point. Again I have omitted the decorative fabric button loops and buttons – as far as I can see they really do not serve any purpose at all other than to add even more layers of fabric in an already ‘congested’ area!
I was very pleased with the sleeve cuffs on the Elmira wrap cardigan and have therefore repeated this method on the sleeves of the top. Completion was with a simple hem of twin-needle stitching.

Adrienne purchased 2 metres of fabric and I was pleased to discover that there was sufficient left over to cut a Paolina top for me. Result!
Fortunately as the fabric is a jersey, the top stretched to fit my mannequin but I hope that it also fits Adrienne!
