Never sewn with knits?  Find them a little scary and daunting?  In this class you’ll learn all the basics of sewing with knit fabrics as you make yourself leggings – the easiest possible knit project.

Leggings The Dreamstress2

You’ll learn how to sew seams that stretch with you, finish them without an overlocker, hem them and insert an elastic waistband in knits, plus how to work with pattern tissue fabric.

We’ll be using the innovative Cake Espresso Leggings pattern, so that you’ll develop a leggings pattern that fits perfectly – and an understanding of fitting, and how changes to the pattern affect how the pattern fits you.

Leggings The Dreamstress1

This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from anyone with basic sewing experience (you must be comfortable using a sewing machine and able to cut and sew precisely and handle fabrics), to more advanced sewers who haven’t worked with knit fabrics.

Materials: students must supply their own knit fabric and pattern:  suitable patterns and fabric guidelines will be sent upon registration.

Cost: $65 (includes pattern tissue fabric, and elastic for the waistband)

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
