Wild Thing

What are you most proud of? That I learned how to use a coverstitch machine and how to alter a pattern to fit my figure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Craftsy Courses Creative Serging: Beyond the Basics, Sewing Fashion Knits; Beyond The Basics, and Beginning Serging. Beginning Serging made me very comfortable with my serger. Creative Serging gave me the knowledge to use my brand new coverstitch machine, and the Sewing Fashion Knits class gave me additional information on sewing knits. I love to sew with knits so much that I may never sew another woven fabric.

Q&A with MsKnitSew

Lojo77 asked:
Your top looks great! I love the neckline. Thanks for the advice. I'm just getting a new serger so I will definitely sign up for both serging classes!
MsKnitSew answered:
Thank you lkeastman1011564. You will learn so much in the serging classes. Both instructors are excellent! I've owned my serger for years using it mostly for finishing seams. Now I think I may use my serger more than I use my sewing machine :o))
Davesmom asked:
Knittermr, I really like the colorful fabrics you sew with; they suite you to a T!! I don't have a serger machine and have yet to try sewing with knits. However, I did sign up for sewing with knits class and am waiting for a knit t-shirt pattern to arrive. I don't like the PDF file patterns. Have you tried the fashsion knit class? I need to get the basic before I try anything fancy.
MsKnitSew answered:
Thank you Davesmom. I have taken both classes offered by Craftsy on sewing knits and have found them both very helpful.

I like the fit on your top. Well fitted clothing look classy and feel so right when you are wearing them. As for knits, it is my favorite fabric to wear. Job very well done.
