Have you ever done this?

I was thinking about this Kwik Sew pattern as I working on it and it seemed somehow familiar.  And when I finished it and tried it on and it was just Meh.  I've made a McCalls pattern, I think, several years ago and probably before I started blogging, that was very similar to this one.  I didn't really care for it then either.  I do have to say this about it.  I was a fun make; I'd never inserted gussets before and all I have to say about is mark accurately.  It goes together very easily.  Something else; I don't like the 1/4 inch seam allowances.  There's no suggestions for finishing seams.  I used my serger on most of them.  And boy was that fun around those gussets.  LOL.  It really looks like a nice tunic but its not something I'll wear.  Soooo, my good sewing buddy Carol is now the recipient of a new top.  SHE loves it.  LOL.

Here's a couple pictures:

That's all I have for today. I'm going to see what other kind of trouble I can get into.  LOL.


  1. Lucky Carol! This top looks lovely with the gusset feature - such a pity you don't like this style of top. Enjoy your trouble-finding day ... J

  2. Hi Judith! Carol is most definitely enjoying her new top! LOL.
