Finished Garment: KS 3856 for Mom

Mom’s birthday is in a few weeks and like all moms she loves handmade gifts.  Five years ago while shopping to outfit my tiny dorm room, mom bought me a wall tapestry from Target and she loved the print.  I took the tapestry down at the end of my freshman year and added it to my fabric stash without much more thought.  When I was looking through the stash a few days ago I knew what I should do with the tapestry.

Fabric: Cotton tapestry from Target (2006)

Pattern: Kwik Sew 3856

Size: Large

Time to complete: 1.5 hours

Total cost: ~$20 (those kwik sew patterns are expensive but so much sturdier than the big 4)

  1. Great dress- it looks cool. I’ll remind my sewing child that some thing handmade just for me might be nice- but I just admit that last spring he found a really cute red jacket in a thrift store he said looked like me and it fit perfectly. I think originally it may have been a suit but I like it as a jacket. Short jacket with a swingy pleated effect in back.

    I am sure your mom will love the dress, especially since she liked the tapestry in the beginning.
