I had a bad case of the blahs on Friday night. Paige had been sick with gastro all week, work had been exhausting and we'd had a big week socially as well. I just wanted to make something and who doesn't love a striped top. Enter Kwik Sew 3740.
This is a great pattern, simple, quick and easy. I made view A in a medium, adding extra length in the body and the sleeves, but I left off the cowl - I think it would have looked a little busy with the thick stripes. The pattern suggests you bind the neckline but I wanted a wider neck band. I should have used interfacing because it ended up being fairly floppy and I had to sew a small tuck at the centre front. It was a happy accident because I really like the slight v shape of the new neckline.
Between the sewing and a glass (or two) of my favourite bubbly, I was feeling much better by the time I went to bed.
