Kwik Sew 2874 - Baseball Style Pullover TAKE THREE


Three times a charm! 

Almost.

A quick recap. My inspiration was this to Milly luxe baseball tee I saw on the Neiman Marcus website.

Using this pattern, Kwik Sew 2874
Take One was blogged about here and Take Two was bloggedhttp://sharonsews.blogspot.com/2014/02/kwik-sew-2874-baseball-style-pullover_27.html about here.

After Take Two I decided to remove about an inch vertically in the upper chest area.  To do so I simply folded the front pattern piece and trued the seam line (the red line in the image).


For Take Three I used a silver knit on the front and neck band and the balance was black. I even changed the thread colors when stitching the collar so the finish would look nice.

Almost there, almost there.  As you can see this one is much too tight in the bustline.

BUT the silver knit did not have the amount of stretch that the knits I used in my first two samples had.  And the beautiful sequin knit (from Mood Fabrics) that I plan to use for my final version has more stretch than the silver knit.

So I think the fit is close enough and I'm good to go on sewing the final version.  I mean I better get started because spring will be here in another four months or so!  (Ha, ha, just kidding....probably two months....and you think I'm still kidding but I'm not. It's been THAT kind of winter!)

As before I found a friend who is very pleased with her new baseball tee!

  Stay tuned! Sewing of the final version will commence soon.

  6. Hi Sharon
    Nice to find a fellow sewing and keep fit enthusiast. I found you via the Sewing Forum. Love the baseball top and you've inspired me to find a use for silver thread and a twin needle.
