New Kwik Sew patterns

I took advantage of the recent BMV sale and purchased more patterns (like I really needed them).  I actually purchased a few Kwik Sew patterns that I have not purchased since taken over by McCall's.  They have not been as appealing to me as they were previously.  There were a few new ones that caught my attention.  I also purchased one-a vest pattern-that has been in their line up for a number of years.

I liked the look of the red jacket.  The pieced jacket looks fairly nice as well; I would use color blocking for this one.
I liked the look of the top on the left and was the reason for the purchase.

 The view of the top on the left side caught my attention.  The top is a cut on sleeve with an attached cowl neck.  The one on the right has a cut on draped cowl neck.  Long sleeves are sewn to the cut on sleeve.
This patten has been around for a few years.  I made another KS vest pattern with the faux sherling fabric as seen here but I was not happy with the results. So I decided to try this one.  I have enough left over fabric to make this one.

One change made with KS patterns is the pattern paper.  Previously it was heavier paper.  I found that it stood up well to multiple tracings.  The paper now is still white but less heavy.


  1. I've bought very few Kwik Sew patterns but yesterday I did pick up 3827 a sort of moto jacket. I really like the look of that first one, the one with the red jacket.

    1. I have the KS 3827 one also. I have made it previously. I find KS patterns run large so I usually go down a size.

  2. I say you can never have too many patterns, hence I am called the 'Pattern Hoarder". I love all of those but don't think I have any. I will definitely have to add a few of those to my collection.

    1. I understand the Pattern Hoarder label. I am also.
