Q&A with prostitch

kohet817890 asked:
I love this do you perhaps have the pattern no. for me i love this blouse
prostitch answered:
Sure! It is New Look #6940 View E. You will LOVE sewing this top! Even with that super stretchy fabric it was a very enjoyable project! There was just something about the way it is laid out and goes together that made it just a real pleasure to sew! ENJOY!
jean.sew asked:
That is a lovely top. Well done. Does the pattern give a good fit? Have you got a serger, sewing FOUR way stretch.
prostitch answered:
Hi! The pattern gave a terrific fit right out of the package with no tinkering at all! I wear a size L-XL in RTW tops and 12 in jeans and really the fit was VERY good! I have a serger, BUT, I sewed everything with a plain straight stitch and serged all the edges for a clean,professional finish and it is wearing just wonderfully! I did, however hem using a coverstitch machine that I just HAD to have after seeing one on Angela's class! LOL!
Creativewan asked:
Love it! Makes me want to sew one up today...!
prostitch answered:
Thanx! You would love how this fabric feels on your skin! Feels really silky without the silk!
