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)


Recent Purchases

I just got my new and first Colette Pattern in the mail, Beignet! I’m so excited to get started but the pattern booklet is so beautiful I don’t want to mess it up.

I also bought on a whim The Little Black Dress by Simon Henry and I glanced through it, it looks like he walks you through creating blocks and how you can create patterns from the blocks.

I can’t wait to get started on the Beignet Skirt. I’ll be starting with a (hopefully) wearable muslin this week, before I select the right fabric for a good one.
