Knit Fabrics Masterclass with Layla

Work on the knit dressmaking project of your choice with the expert guidance of Sew Over It’s resident knit fabric whiz and all-round wonder teacher Layla Totah!

Layla teaches a whole range of our classes from our bestselling beginners course, Intro to Sewing, to our Intro to Overlocking and Pattern Cutting classes. What Layla doesn’t know about stretchy fabrics just isn’t worth knowing!

If you’re stuck with a fitting question and don’t know where to turn next, have a stretchy fabric that you’re too scared to tackle, or simply want to complete your project and learn some expert tips along the way then Layla is here to help. In these guided sewing sessions designed specifically for knit fabrics, you can bring along any stretchy project that you’re working on and Layla will help you through any sticking points, setting you up for sewing success!

This is a class specifically for working with knit fabrics. If you would like help with a woven fabric project, our Sewing Masterclass with Julie will be a better fit for you.

If you’re taking part in an evening class in two parts then you may, depending on your project, be asked to do some homework in between the two classes to help you get the most out of the sessions. Along with expert tuition in small numbers you are, of course, able to use all of our equipment and help yourself to lots of tea and treats!

So we can be prepared for your session, after booking please get in touch on [email protected] to let us know what you’ll be working on. Attendees have found it useful to bring two or three projects that they are stuck on so they can benefit the most from Layla’s advice and leave the easy bits to do at home. For example, fitting a dress, decoding some tricky instructions and mastering the quirks of an overlocker!

  • Have completed Intro to Dressmaking or similar
