When I was at Walmart I found cotton twill material for $1 a yard that I thought would make perfect muslins. However, I quickly decided this sage green material would make a nice shacket.
Last time I made KwikSew 3251 I thought it fit perfect, except for the shoulders were too large. In my last blog, I adjusted the pattern for this project.
The sleeves seemed wrinkly to me, so I adjusted and readjusted, but decided I was over thinking it, and went ahead with the shacket.
I found two good articles on adjusting sleeves. One is a Craftsy and the other is a Threads article.
I used my Singer 15-91 for all the sewing. This machine is truly a gem. The gear drive motor is smooth and strong. It was given to me by my mom's friend.
I decided a matching top stitching thread would be perfect for this color. I also decided to serge the seams.
I have enough sage twill for a few more projects. Maybe a shirt, pants, or ....
Thanks for stopping.
