Sewing with Knits: the easy T-shirt
October 14, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Monday evenings 14 & 21 October, 6-8.30 (this is a two-session class)
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 an easy T-shirt out of cotton, viscose or merino knit: the perfect wardrobe staple.
The simple, but perfectly made, T-shirt
We’ll work through basic tips to make sewing knit seams easy, with no stretching and warping; how to bind the seams without an overlocker; how to set in sleeves in knit fabrics (pattern dependent), and how to finish necklines and sleeve edges; and finally, how to hem a T-shirt for a professional finish.
This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from anyone with basic sewing experience, to more advanced sewers who haven’t worked with knit fabrics.
Materials: students must supply their own knit fabric and pattern (options include a free printable pattern): suitable patterns and fabric guidelines will be sent upon registration
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.
