New Kwik Sew top


Since all I want to do when I get home from work is slipping into my Kwik Sew cami I decided to make a second one. In the spirit of yesterday's post this one is made of organic ribbed cotton. It's the softest cotton I have ever laid my hands on, the quality is superior. The drawback though is that it grows like crazy, which makes it both a bit hard to sew and hard to wear. I have actually drafted a special sloper just for this knit that's only 85% of my chest circumference, but even that is too big. This Kwik Sew project was however perfect since the elastic keeps the fabric in check.

Hope you all will have a nice weekend. I'm off to visit a castle - which is one of my favorite outings!

  2. It looks like a perfect fit in the photo. Of course, if it grows, that could be hazardous!

  3. Your cami looks very comfortable. Please tell us about your outing to the castle. During my honeymoon we drove around England looking for castles to see!

  6. >>Anotinette: Oh, thank you (*blushes*)!

    >>Gwnesews: Yes it's a potential hazard, I did adjust the pattern to make it even snugger, but I do fear that the cups will grow...

    >>Lisette M: English castle hunting sounds like the ultimate honeymoon to me :) And I am thrilled that you asked about my castle outing. Especially for you I will post some pictures tomorrow!

    >>Christina: Thanks, and nice to hear from another comfy knit lover. I think that my "mjukisbyxor" is the most worn garment in my wardrobe.

    >>Mary Nanna: That would be just me, a tripod and a remote timer You can totally book me, I would love to go to New Zealand :) Actually I did give the photo a little special aftertreatment using the free software Poladroid.

  7. Gorgeous photo!

    I thought about buying organic ribbed cotton, was enticed by the words soft and luxurious. I had a sneaking suspicion that the fabric would grow!
