What was your inspiration?
I have been wanting to learn more about sewing with knits for a very long time. I am used to sewing only with cotton, and this year I have decided to step out of my comfort zone and try new things, plus I am in need of a new wardrobe and this class seems like a very good start for the basics. I knew that I would not wear a hoodie, but still wanted to learn and use the techniques from this class, so I did just that to make myself a "hoodie" spring/summer jacket.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud that I was able to use the techniques from the class and sew up this project with more ease than I thought was possible going in, and also that I was able to incorporate some of my own designing into it to make it my own.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time, and don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
