Kwik Sew #3766

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Kwik Sew patterns are the best. They’re never on sale but I don’t care—they’re worth every penny. I used to think $10 was a lot for a pattern but you figure that good patterns save you hours of frustration not to mention the wasted fabric you ruin with other patterns, they’re worth it. Kwik Sew 3766 is no exception. I’ve used it a few times to make me some t-shirts.

I know, I messed up—I didn’t even match the stripes at the side. An oversight. Now it just looks like a store bought shirt. Yes, that was a dig at cheap t-shirt companies.  I don’t usually think making t-shirts is worth it but I do find it hard to find cute printed t-shirts in the store. And I love me a good stripe.

As is typical of Kwik Sew, I didn’t alter this t-shirt pattern at all. The cut is perfectly fitted without being too tight. I’d love some tips on great online sources for t-shirt knits. I bought this black/gray striped knit at fabric.com but I’m always looking for more sources.

Cute! No one but you (or perhaps another sewer) will even notice the mismatched stripes
