Sewing Tidbits

Well it's back to work today. Yesterday I was able to basically finish the Kwik Sew top. I still need to hem the sleeves as I had to take deeper seams as they were still too large. I need to remove the previous stitching so the seam will lay flat at the hem.

I took some pictures of my recent fabric purchases.The top three photos are fabrics from Fabric Mart. Top photo is a Crimson red twill fabric; the second photo is a black diamond quilted double knit, this is from March swatch mailer. The third photo is a novelty weave Jacquard.The last photo is red and gray blouse weight crepe from Mood.



The final photos are of the Kwik Sew top.

  2. Very cool top! It sounds like they made it a little complicated to get there but the end result was worth it.

    1. There are a few quirky things with the overlay. It just became so time consuming and I was ready to move on to something else.

  5. Those $2.40 per yard price tags still make my heart beat fast! *LOL* You got some nice pieces and the top looks great. Hopefully you can get a pic of you wearing it soon!
