Pattern Review: Kwik Sew 3706 Misses’ Jackets

Threads magazine - 146 – Dec. 2009/Jan. 2010

Style Tip: Pair this jacket with a matching pencil skirt for the perfect office ensemble.

This review was originally featured in Threads #146 (December 2009/January 2010).

Kwik Sew 3706

This flattering wrap-style jacket has lots of gently curved seams that offer a perfect fit for a shapely body. The style lines also create the illusion of curves for straighter figures. The pattern features an inset waist, banded bracelet length sleeves, and a slightly flared peplum. The fit is generous through the bust area, so our tester recommends making a test garment to adjust the bust and eliminate any gape. Kwik Sew prints their patterns on heavyweight paper, and all sizes are included in one envelope. To keep all sizes intact, simply trace a copy of your size. All respective lines are color-coded, so following a particular size is effortless.

(Sized Misses’ XS–XL for busts 31.5–45 in. and hips 32.25–47 in.)

Style Tip: Pair this jacket with a matching pencil skirt for the perfect office ensemble.
