Dr. Fun Sews Again!!

Well, I finished a second Bernat Tizzy hat that's smaller and used one skein of that yarn...

and I'm continuing work on the full-size sweater made with alpaca wool I got at Clara's Loom...(and this is natural un-dyed wool, but look how I'm ending up with stripes - cool!)

but Dean inspired me to get back upstairs on the sewing machine. He said my machine was probably crying because it was so lonely and forgotten. What he probably meant was that he's tired of my running commentary while he (tries to) watch football. Knitting does give me more together time with the family! So here's my muslin of Kwik Sew 3740. I wanted a new shirt to wear to Pure Barre, so I made the XL length.

Straight out of the envelope, I'm amazed at the fit - hooray! Well...

Need to do a swayback adjustment...and what's up with the weird left shoulder wrinkle?

and I guess I'll lower the armscye. I had problems with wrinkles under there on another shirt. Seems like I always have an issue with my armholes...sigh.

So if you combine the muslin of the Silhouette yoga pant with this shirt, I'll just look like a mess in class.
You know what? I think I'll go back to knitting.

I quite like your new Kwik Sew shirt and concur with the adjustments!

I'm still on a knitting binge - I'm in Chicago but as soon as I get home . . . I'm posting pictures of two scarfs, and I'm on a third!

Hurray!

Still love the hat!

Hooray Pam! Did you hit some yarn or fabric shops in Chicago? Can't wait to see the scarves...
