Work in progress: Using a dress pattern, I made a top and am going to add a back zipper. The top has three sets of darts which make it very form fitting. It is so comfortable to wear because it is stretch fabric.
The pattern is burda young 7556.
Black velvet. I am using a stretch stitch, and after breaking a few needles, purchased the correct needles for sewing on jersey knits. Lots of fabric dust accumulates in the sewing machine, so regular cleaning is a must to keep your machine ready to sew.
Three videos, a web seminar, and five patterns help you master stretchy stitching.
