This is an old review, but I really like this skirt. If you can get a hold of the Burda Plus, I think it would be a nice addition to TNT patterns. Burda Plus Fashion Magazine- 09-2003-403 (Long Gored Skirt)


I added the picture. As you can see, it's not nearly as formfitting on me as on the model. I really think it's more flattering that way.



Orange T-shirts.

My orange t-shirts in all their orange glory. This t-shirt really isn't Kwik Sew 2565 any more. I think I'm going to scoop the neckline out even more, and I don't have the neckband length right. It's too long. Of course, that is trial and error since I'm redrafting the…


T-shirt Darts

I thought you might be interested in the darts in my t-shirts. This pattern piece started out as Kwik Sew 2565. The changes are the side bust dart, the french dart, and the neckline. The original neckline was a crew neck with a thick band. It fit great, but it was not the best look for me. I have large breasts…


Evolution of a t-shirt

IMG_1359_edited I like it. This t-shirt is the combination of 4 different patterns. KS 2565 was the starting point. I used the shape of the french darts from a burda magazine pattern. In order to cover buttus-sticks-outous*, I used a 2 piece back from NL 6977 OOP. And I morphed the neckline/neckband using another burda magazine pattern.

It’s taken me quite a while to get to this…


Darts & Overly Erect (More on Kwik Sew 2526)

The extension on the dart is too short to be sewn into the sideseam on my t-shirt if pressed down. This is a big issue for me. The dart extensions make the fabric requirements much greater than if they aren’t there. I’ve played with the idea of pressing the dart up, takes less fabric. I haven’t done that, but I have serged off the excess fabric. I’m going to do that on this t-shirt. I wonder what I was planning when I cut this one out.

I stand very straight. Sandra…
