Kwik Sew 2740 Muslin

I made Kwik Sew 2740 after looking at what everyone said on Pattern Review.  The pattern was very easy and I will make it again.  I did have one fitting issue.  I have narrow shoulders.

I looked to Pattern Review boards to search for a fix and found one.  A few people recommened Sandra Betzina’s book Fast Fit and joy o joy I have it on my bookshelf.  I made her suggest alterations on the pattern.  This weekend, I will try it on fabric.

The other fitting issue I had was my fault.  I made the sleeves way to long.

I’m looking forward to making this pattern again.  This was my first serger construction project.  I did make mistakes like not having the correct needle tension.  Now, the seams look like tailor tacks before you cut them.
