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.

You’ll learn how to sew seams that stretch with you, hem knits, and insert an elastic waistband in knits, plus how to work with pattern tissue fabric.

We’ll be using the DIBY Anything But Basic Leggings, so you’ll gain an understanding of fitting, and how changes to the pattern affect how the pattern fits you.

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.

Level:  Students should be completely comfortable threading a sewing machine and making simple items (bags, cushion covers, pyjamas, etc.).  This class is a good follow-up class to Absolute Beginners Sewing.

Teacher:  This class is taught by our awesome sewing expert Brendan Goudswaard.

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

Cost: $80 (includes pattern tissue fabric, and elastic for the waistband)

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

Location: this class will be held at Made Marions new location at 166 Cuba St – between Ghuznee and Vivian Sts, beside Olive Café
