I found some fabric in my stash for April's MAGM theme. It's not the oldest piece in my collection but I have had it for several years.
Kwik Sew 3740 is a favourite of mine. I have made it with long sleeves and cowl for the winter and short sleeves without the cowl for the summer and have made two of each previously. I have never made the sleeveless version yet but may do so one day.
The first time I made it I cut size medium. It was very loose and required taking in along the sleeve and side seams. I have tweaked it several times since then and this time I cut the front small size to the underarm then medium to the hem and small size for the back. I raised the neckline to X-small and cut the X-small cowl to match. This makes the neckline neither too high nor too low. The sleeves were cut at size small. I also did a forward shoulder adjustment of 1.5cm at the shoulder point tapering to 0 at the neck edge.
|It fits Myrtle beautifully|
I'm really happy with this version. It fits in all the right places and I will probably make many more with and without the cowl in future.
Cheers for now.
