North Hobart, Au...
Made for my husband Kwik Sew 3422. The size I used was a Large but as my husband is 6’ 4" and the unaltered pattern was too short in arms and body. I added 4 cm to the length of the arms but took them in by about 8cm at the top tapering down to the cuff. I also added 5cm in the body length. I also did flat fell seems (side, sleeves and shoulder) which took the sides in by a couple of cm as the pattern seam allowance was only 6mm and added ’ shaping’ (darts whatever they’re called) in the back.This is the first item I have made for him and he says he likes it. He wore it to work on casual dress day and announced to his colleagues that I had made it. I have purchased more material to make others for him.
I think this material was sheeting I got it from Op Shop $4.
