Knits Aren't Scary!

Stretchy knit garments are the most essential wardrobe staples for many of us--t-shirts and leggings, anyone?--so why not learn to make them? In this class we will shed light on how to fit and sew with knit fabrics using a standard home machine. That's right, no sergers in sight! We will review general principles of working with knit fabrics, how to select your size and think about the fit of knit garments, and the unique considerations involved in constructing a garment. The simple and versatile Grainline Linden sweatshirt and the True Bias Hudson pants provide the perfect canvas for you to get comfy with sewing comfy clothes!
