Whether you're an experienced sewist or just getting started, you can stretch your repertoire with knit fabrics. Let Meg McElwee show you how easy it is to work with jersey, fleece, interlock and more in Sewing With Knits: 5 Wardrobe Essentials.
You won't need a serger/overlocker to finish your garments, just standard stitches and seam-stabilizing tricks. With the free patterns included in this class, you'll be able to whip up comfortable clothing that fits your body and your preferences: Long sleeves or short sleeves, V-necks or scoop-necks, shorts or pants. Hem up a free-flowing dress to make a tunic, or plunge it to the floor for a mod maxi. Do the kids love to fill your pockets? Give them shorts with sturdy pockets of their own.
As a bonus, Meg will show you how to dunk-dye your creations and make them truly original. You can go for solid colors or get creative with tie-dyed patterns.
Patterns are sized to fit women with bust-waist-hip measurements from 31"-23"-33.5" to 48.5"-40.5"-51"
