InstructionsI bought and used the Sewing with knits class, it gave some really useful pointers on sewing with knit fabrics and worth every penny as nothing went wrong whilst I was making this dress.
Get yourself a walking foot and use a rtiple stitch
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Formal / Bridal, Classic
Dark aubergine Ponteroma fabric with two way stretch.
What was your inspiration?
I loved the form hugging design of this pattern and was interested in having a go at working with stretch fabrics. The pintucks are reasonably easy to do and add an interesting element to the design.
What are you most proud of?
I love the finished dress and felt really good in it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Definitely buy yourself a walking foot, I did and it was worth every penny, and investigate your machine to see if it has a triple stitch that allows the fabric to stretch without any thread breakages.
Make sure to iron at each stage.
