Sewing Knits That Fit

with Dyanne Marte
Your best knit garments will fit perfectly and look as fabulous as they feel. Learn to fit knit necklines, bodices, sleeves, skirts, pants and more.

Bring a superior fit to every knit garment you sew with designer Dyanne Marte. Fit bodices beautifully as you adjust for figure variations in the bust, waist and shoulders. Correct gaping armholes and necklines and reshape too-tight necklines. Achieve full range of motion and a tailored look by altering armscye seams, getting the right amount of ease in the biceps, taking in forearms and setting in knit sleeves perfectly. Discover tips for altering a bodice that's too long or short and hem knit garments with confidence. Solve rise and thigh-fitting issues for knit pants. Plus, hone your fit even further with jelly tape, elastic and banding. Consistently sew fabulous-fitting knit garments that are a joy to wear.
