Sewing with Knits
If you're looking for a quick and gratifying sewing project, knitwear is an excellent place to start. After all, knit fabrics are pretty easy to fit and usually don't need fiddly closures. With knit fabrics there's not a lot standing between you and a garment that's so comfortable you may never want to take it off.
Even for an advanced sewer, sewing a hoodie is kind of intimidating. It's not overly complicated, but there are many steps, many pieces and, of course, there's all the hardware.
Ask yourself what gets more use in your wardrobe: a fancy party dress or a pair of yoga pants or leggings. Yup, that's what I thought: yoga pants and leggings for the win!
Why do we love knit fabric so? Because of its s-t-r-e-t-c-h. That said, finding the right knit fabric for a sewing project can stretch anyone's patience. Here's how to find what you need, every time.
There's nothing like finding a T-shirt pattern that just fits really well. But even we get sick of the same old T shape, so why not try personalizing it with a different neckline? It's dangerously simple to do, and will help shake up your wardrobe in a big way.
Sew tailored knits for attire your coworkers, friends and family will surely admire.
