Kwik-Sew Ideas

I've been considering this outfit for a summer "pretty". It has been in Kwik-Sew since winter 2005 and is still available from the pattern company. I would definitely raise the neckline for a modest display of your sewing talents. Possiblities for fabric choices are limitless. One could use large bold prints for the skirt and a matching solid for the top. A tea length skirt would be a nice length for tops with the 3/4 sleeves. Kwik Sew 3381

The other pattern I have found has some very comfortable lines and here again, the choices of fabrics is limitless for this summer outfit. I am not sure if it available from Kwik-Sew but Sew Thankful has it and there may be other sources on the internet where it is available. This is a good one if you like matching skirt and tops and like elastic waistlines for comfort. One can always get a matching solid to make a complete coordinating outfit to mix and match with a print. This is Kwik Sew 2956
Another pattern that would work for jersey or interlock knit fabrics: Kwik Sew 2771. It features an 8 gore skirt with a simple bateau(boat)-neck top with a choice of sleeve lengths. A very simple pattern to make.
