We are incredibly excited to bring you our new online sewing class,
Intro to Sewing with Knit Fabrics!
Our brand new online class is designed for those who live in and love wearing jersey tops and dresses, but don’t know where to begin when it comes to sewing them for themselves. In this class we hold your hand through every step, teaching you our best tips.
At the end of the course you will not only have built up a whole new range of skills, but you’ll have two brand new garments to add to your handmade wardrobe.
Let’s meet the patterns!
The Emma Dress is your perfect everyday jersey dress. It features a flattering princess-seamed bodice and a pretty pleated skirt with two hem options. The sleeves are a classic 3/4 length and the dress closes with an invisible zip in the centre back seam.
Designed to be sewn in a stable, heavier-weight jersey such as ponte, with Emma you’ll learn the absolute basics of sewing with knit fabrics, as well as some surprise extras – such as inserting a zip into a stretch fabric!
With Alice you’ll take your skills up a level. A flattering v-neck top with a pretty bow-effect bust detail, Alice features individually graded cup sizes to ensure the best fit for you. It also has 3/4 length sleeves and a fully-lined bust for a beautiful finish on the inside.
The Alice Top is designed to be sewn in lightweight knits, which have a reputation for being more difficult to sew. But with all our very best tips we’ll have you achieving beautiful results in no time!
What will you learn?
Using the Emma Dress and Alice Top patterns as the basis for the class, you’ll learn how to sew with different types of jersey, as well as lots of new construction techniques.
From identifying the right fabric for your project, testing its stretch percentage, choosing your needle, stitching a zip into a knit and LOTS more, we’ve got you covered on a huge range of techniques to make your knit sewing a breeze.
Who is this class for?
