Which fishsticks pattern?

Postby sim » Sat May 19, 2012 6:02 pm

Or patterns !!! :giggle:

I FINALLY got my sewing machine today. Once I get to know it with some basic projects, I want to start making Ewan some clothes. I love the look of the Fishsticks designs patterns, but which ones do I start with???

I think the AJ bottoms look like an easy starting point for trousers / shorts, followed by the inside out pocket pants once I get the hang of things.

But which tshirt pattern to choose??? I like them all!! The Charlie tee and Rockin the Raglan look like I could manage them, but is one easier than the other? I also like the patrick but I'm guessing the curved raglan is a bit trickier?

I love the curved raglan. I dont find it much trickier than the normal tees, and you can get away with using less of a print fabric as the body bit is smaller as the sleves take up some of the length in the body :wink:
Just buy them all! I have :lookround: :lookround: :lookround:

I'd go for the charlie tshirt pattern as it has the options of long sleeves and hood :thumbsup:

I agree with the others though, you'll soon have the whole collection :giggle:
