Shots of other sewing projects

Here is my completed View A KS 3617. I need to write a review for PR. I am okay with the fit but decided I will go down a size in neckline shoulder area when I make this again. I also need to take a deeper tuck between shoulder and bust line; I tucked out about 1/4 inch but think I could easily go 1/2 inch. I will wear this top; yet I know I can perfect the fit a little more. This fabric is one I purchased recently at Hancock's in Fredericksburg.

This is my KS tri-color dress. I ran out of steam working on this yesterday, plus it was so nice and warm (7o degrees) that I wanted to spend time outside. I used one inch just in case seams that I found to be totally unnecessary for this dress. I will actually take about 1.5 inches from below bust to hemline. I am liking the look of this dress as the colors are truly what I like to wear.


  1. Nice top--love the open neckline. I suspect that the pattern has a bit of a drop to the sleeve--at lest that's what the pattern looks like in the drawing. That may be why it's a bit large in that area.

    Your dress is coming along. Good luck with that. Great colors. How will you accessorize it?

  2. I love your tri-color dress and the lovely green top. Can't wait to see the dress when it's done, I have never made a dress before, but I will be making some soon. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about the coverstitch, I am just a beginner sewist and wondering if some gizmos are necessary or not, thanks again for your input.

  3. I like the neckline on that top, too. The wide band is a very RTW touch.
