Project

Sewing With Knits

What are you most proud of? That it came out so well. I had difficulty with the fabric bunching up in the machine and I had to try different stitches and stitch lengths to make it work. My seam ripper got a work out!!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Test the stitches Meg recommends on a piece of your fabric before sewing the final garment. Some stitches work better than others depending on the fabric content. My fabric was a little thin and that may have been the problem.

Love your fabric choice!
Teresa Maria answered:
Thank you.
Scheri Manson asked:
It looks very classy Teresa. Did you try your walking foot and a tear away stabilizer. Give them a try next time and you can put away the seam ripper.
Teresa Maria answered:
I did use the walking foot but not a tear away stabilizer, thanks for the tip Scheri I will try that next time.
