Instant Gratification Required!

Pattern Review: Kwik Sew 3844

I mentioned in my last post that I have had some bad luck with my recent sewing projects. So what better way to solve my blues than to whip up a (fourth!!!) version of Kwik Sew 3844.

To be honest I was pretty horrified with myself when I realised I had made so many versions but none of them were a simple black tank. I think most people would say that they are a wardrobe staple. I purchased this fabric from one of the shops on Goldhawk Road for £4.99 per metre. 

As per usual I cut a medium  and sewed this straight out of the envelope. I don't bother with the boob pocket. For me it disturbs the simplicity of the overall garment. 

I really don't have too much to say about this version that I haven't covered before. Except that I like it so much I am thinking about making a shorter version (similar to this iteration here) out of the same fabric. This is so that I can wear it tucked in with skirts which would be handy, and also another excuse for some instant gratification. In other words, don't expect to be seeing the last of this pattern anytime soon!

You can see my pattern review here.

I have a couple of other instant gratification/TNT patterns on the go to soothe my wadder woes. They are knit garments which has signaled that Autumn is arriving, (yes I am wearing boots despite these photos being taken on the August Bank Holiday weekend) and that I clearly can't face any sort of fit issues at present!

Anyone else been soothing some sewing woes? 

Happy Sewing!


  1. Isn't it nice to have a pattern that you know works and, as I can see from your photos, looks good on you . I am just on a fourth version of a simple skirt pattern. My sewing woe is that I altered it slightly but just drew the alteration on the fabric with tailor's chalk before cutting out. However, I forgot to duplicate this alteration when cutting out the lining so now I have to do some piecing to fix this. At least it will be on the inside!
