Instagram friends sent out an invitation to join in on their 'sewingsansfrontieres' challenge to be completed 9.4.2018. Sewing without borders is the loose translation and I loved everything about the thought behind this challenge immediately. Suzy sews in Spain, Helene sews in Canada and Sue sews in Australia..... around the globe holding hands in friendship..... that's what the sewing community is all about, isn't it?! So definitely I was in. So then..... what was this Stitch Sisters Kaftan patternless pattern......?
their patternless pattern link you will see a couple of charts...... a sizing chart and a fabric measurement chart. No pattern. All rectangles. Completely out of my comfort zone!!!!! I do not like cutting rectangles out of fabric like this. Nope, not at all. You even follow their instructions for cutting out your neckline... no template. Noooooooooo!!!!! Too easy for something to be out of whack resulting in a less than par garment. I began to question this whole project, but ever up for a challenge and a learning experience.... onward I plunged.
All About Fabrics, it cost all of maybe $5.00. And it was a huge pain to cut out rectangles as it slipped all over the place. Using my rotary cutter and straight edge accompanying ruler helped.
Happy Sewing All! :)
