KwikSew 4028 Rust & Black stripes

KwikSew K4028 - Rust with black stripes

My first KwikSew pattern. I will be back.... The instructions suggest serging. I made the mistake of serging the sleeve opening--big mistake. It was difficult to turn under the hem to sew because it was served. It only took 2.5 hours from cut out to finish. I used a pointe knit.
 Lovely cowl! I loved sewing it. The pieces came together well. I will use a lighter knit to make it again. It's a great year round top for knits of all weights.

Conclusion:
The top wore really well. I really love the color. It will be a "go-to" pattern for me

  1. Looks nice. It is the kind of top I wear. Did you need to make any adjustments. Such as FBA. I recently made a kwik sew and loved it. No dart but worked fine.
