Sewing With Knits: 5 Wardrobe Essentials »
InstructionsMake sure to keep the plastic elastic in each stitch. I had issues with my serger needle missing the elastic at times. Next time, I'll practice more on a sample, and make sure I have the right serger foot or use a zig zag stitch instead.
Type of item: Clothing
It's a jersey knit, rayon/spandex.
What was your inspiration?
It was for a friend's birthday gift. I wanted to surprise her.
What are you most proud of?
That I've made something again with knit fabrics. When I went to apparel design school, the classes mostly emphasized working with wovens. I'm so glad to be working with knits again.
