You’ll learn how to take a pattern designed for a woven, non-stretch fabric
Modify the pattern to be sewn in any type of knit
Various types of knits, and how to choose the right fabric for your project.
There’s a reason knitwear is so popular in today’s fashion world. Stretch fabrics eliminate many of the challenges we face with woven fabrics when it comes to finding that perfect fit. You don’t have to worry about a garment feeling too tight one day or a little loose the next!
While most patterns are designed with a certain fabric type in mind, you don’t have to stick with knitwear patterns to sew with knits. Why not sew a leather skirt in spandex or a bustier in stretch cotton?
After this web seminar, you’ll be able to do just that! You’ll learn how to take a pattern designed for a woven, non-stretch fabric, and modify it to be sewn in any type of knit.
This web seminar is best suited to sewers with existing knowledge and understanding of pattern drafting techniques.
Alana Walsh is a recent fashion design graduate and the newly appointed Assistant Editor of BurdaStyle US Magazine.
