Sewing Fashion Knits

Beyond the Basics

with Linda Lee
Sewing Fashion Knits
Stretch your skills with designer Linda Lee as you learn how to sew knits from slinky to open weave, including preparation, sewing and serging for a perfect finish.

Fashion knit fabrics have a delicious drape, create elegant yet comfortable garments, but can often be challenging to sew. Master the techniques you need to create your own fashion knit wardrobe with your home sewing machine, including how to prepare your fabric, finish seams and edges, stabilize shoulders and necklines, and troubleshoot for puckering, curling, slipped stitches and more. If you have a serger, Linda offers invaluable advice for using it to create attractive finishes.
