More Kwik Sew 3422 for Mr. SDSC

Mr. SDSC was so pleased with his last shirt, that I thought I would make a couple more to practice techniques before I start playing around with the pattern and making it a better fit.  I used the same pattern, Kwik Sew 3422, and other than being more accurate with edge stitching a using a new foot for my Pfaff for the topstitching (boy that foot is spot on!), not much else changed. 

The first shirt is made from a gorgeous cotton with width-ways stripes, so I cut the pattern pieces out accordingly - I did not want horizontal stripes.  The thicker blue/grey stripe is woven like satin ribbon and has a different finish - it looks rather classy.

The second shirt is a plain 100% cotton - slightly thicker fabric (I have a feeling it may actually be quilting cotton) and will make a greater cooler weather shirt.

I am really enjoying making these shirts - there will be many more in the future!

Lots more details on my blog, and photos on Flickr - pop over and take a look!


  1. These look great! I'm so impressed!

  2. Thanks for your comments! He is one happy boy! I have one more cut out in the style in a black stretch poplin, then I am going to play around wiht some variations . . . . !
