Kwik Sew 2993, two tops for my 15 year old.

Kwik Sew 2993This sewing pattern is really a ladies pattern. But I think it is very suitable for a man also. I just regulate the length of the sleeves and make the body part longer. I always add a casing in the bottom of the bodice. In stead of making a jacket, I omitted the zipper, cut the front on the fold and let the hood ends overlap a bit in center front. The pattern itself is wonderful to work with and it gives great results.

This is my second go at this pattern. Last time I made some tops for my oldest son this past christmas. My other son (15 years) hasnt wanted me to sew for him. But somehow I was able to “coax” him into our new (and wonderful) fabric store in town. He chose fabrics for two hoodies.

He did a great job. First choice was a dark blue jersey and a striped jersey for lining the hood. side blå

He said that when he was little, people would call him a monkey. He climbed everywhere and I suppose he thought being called a monkey was a good thing. So, a monkey hoodie he got!!! 🙂 forranbakside


I love the Raglan sleeves because it gives the garment more shape.arm brun
