Sewing garments with stretch knits is not that difficult. Sewing well-made, professional looking garments with stretch knits is a different story! It seems the more stretch the garment requires, the more likely it will look less polished and professional. There are a number of techniques and skills you can execute to keep your knit garments looking sharp, even those super stretchy swimwear and lingerie garments!
In this web seminar recording we will explore professional looking techniques for sewing stretch knits on your domestic machine, no cover stitch or twin needle necessary! We will discuss the execution of common skills applied to swimwear and intimate apparel to make your home sewn knits look off-the-rack! As an added bonus we’ll also discuss a few swimwear DIY’s that don’t require a pattern, so you can turn heads and make waves in your beautifully sewn swimsuit!
This web seminar recording is for sewers who have a few projects under their belts and are familiar with their sewing machine but is also appropriate for seasoned sewers who wish to further their understanding of sewing professional looking knit garments.
