Kwik Sew 3106 - making me cross
« on: July 25, 2019, 14:59:49 PM »

I need another summer nightie so got this pattern intending to make view c.
It comes in sizes xs to XL but there are no finished garment measurements on the envelope or on the pattern pieces. The description doesn't give any indication about amount of ease.
There are a couple of comments on Pattern Review which say it is "huge', so I'll probably get away with  "S" but I will try to measure the pattern first. (The bust point isn't marked)
Also, it only has quarter inch seam allowances which I hate so I will change that .
I thought this was going to be a quick and easy project!

Well I`ve finished it.
According to the body measurements on the envelope I should have been the top end of "medium" but I made "small" and that is plenty big enough.
I ended up making a short version of view B but with no sleeves - using polycotton.   And I did increase the seam allowances to 5/8inch - much easier to work with than 1/4",  especially the gathers. I`m not going to bother with the buttons

Despite this it`s not a bad pattern and I`ll probably make a winter version some time

(I`ll try to put in a photo but my camera isn`t happy with the gingham!)
