Kwik Sew 3790 • Asymmetrical top
Pattern Sizing: XS-S-M-L-XL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Mine's cuter!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Totally easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Like all Kwik Sew patterns, it was quick! And really easy to sew.
Fabric Used: 100% poly knit from JoAnn's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Just like "needs more cowbell", I need more rusching! I just can't get enough, so I added additional length to both sides to accommodate it -- maybe 6 extra inches on either side. The armholes are a little high on this one, so I'll be taking .5" off those next time. I'm also planning to lower the neckline a bit. It's a little high to wear anything but a short necklace with. I'd like more flexibility for my vast necklace collection.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will definitely sew this again. I've already got more fabric in my stash ready for it. I plan to make the long-sleeved version in emerald &/or deep purple this coming fall.
Conclusion: This simple asymmetrical top with rusching is a blast to wear! It's comfortable, flattering and easy to sew. It'll look great with my collection of cute summer skirts!
