This is designed for wovens.
Just wondering before cutting, if anyone has tried KS
for other than knits and how the sizing compares.
I like this for summer lightweight voiles etc. because
they show bias bindings instead of facings.

It's pictured on here, but I don't know how to add it...

I'm not sure how to answer your question....but here's a link to your pattern. ks3848
I've been working on 4 KS patterns - 2 knits, 2 wovens. I'm currently trying to make a TNT out of ks3600 (woven) as I have with (almost) ks2900(knit). These 2 patterns have similar shapes (loose, boxier fit) and they seem to fit me similar too - I'm finding that I need to make many the same type of fitting and size adjustments to the woven as I did to the knit, with taking stretch into account. If you've made a KS knit, was it loose or fitted? This sleeveless pattern looks to be a loose, drapey fit....hmm, might be a good one for me. lol

So far, when I choose by my upper bust measurement, I've found KS patterns to be too large in my shoulder/neck area, too low in the armhole and too small in the bust and mid-section in both knits and wovens. HTH's

Thanks!
It seems a lot of patterns think one always has big biceps to go along with larger bust measurement. I find Senior weight gain goes to the middle, not the extremeties!
