Soduko Contest: Kwik Sew 4068 & Jalie 2805
I’m on a spring-break sewcation this week, so I’m trying to fill in the rest of my Soduko card. First up–the tops. Since I have so much wool and pleather in this wardrobe, and since it’s snowing outside, I decided to go with some hearty tops. I started with Kwik Sew 4069.
I bought this pattern on clearance when Hancock Fabrics was closing. I made an extra-small because my fabrics had a lot of stretch and I didn’t want a too much bulk.
The grey ribbed knit is from Fabric.com–here it is. It’s the perfect fabric for this top. I serged all the seams and the hems.
Here it is with one of the Soduko “accessories” it pairs up with:
Here’s the other:
I liked this top so much that I made another. This time with a light-plum/lavender sweater knit, also from Fabric.com.
When my husband kinda-sorta likes something, but he doesn’t love it, he says, “I like this fine.” Well, I like this top fine. If make this turtleneck again, which I will, I’ll use ribbed fabric. It’s better with heavier, ribbed fabric, the the color is great for its Soduko accessory.
For my third Soduko top, I went with Jalie 2805 with long sleeves and a crew neck. I love this pattern–super easy with great results. The only modification that I made was increasing the width of the neck band. I cut it at three inches wide.
The purple is a perfect match for the rest of the purples in this Soduko challenge. So, here’s my Soduko card so far:
BTW, I also finished my purple, button skirt. I’ll post that next.
