Don’t miss the latest limited edition kit, Stretch Fabric Basics. For March, we’re all about jersey, spandex, and other stretch fabrics.

The new Stretch Basics Kit covers everything you need to know about sewing with stretch knits. Elastic fabrics like stretch jersey and spandex are perfect for trendy, comfy, form-fitting projects, but they can be tricky to sew.

Master the basics with this kit, starting with two video guides on cutting and sewing stretch fabrics. You’ll learn how to find the direction of greatest stretch, lay out a pattern correctly on spandex, what needles and settings to use with your stretch fabric, what stitches to use, and how to remove serged seams from stretch fabric.

When you’re ready to tackle a project, let Meg Healy show you How to Make a Pair of Leggings. This video covers the process from start to finish, and the pattern is included in this kit!

Stretch those skills with a fine jersey skirt and retro swimsuit. This kit features a web seminar on sewing the Alison Swimsuit, with tips for achieving the perfect fit. A retro one piece can flatter so many body types.

Patterns are included for the Carol Leggings, Alison Swimsuit, Neon Skirt, Chill Dress, and Jersey Top.

Looking for more curve-hugging, easy care, stretch fabric goodness? Check out these comfy cute jersey patterns. They’re the perfect complement to this kit!

    The ad sent via email said $24.99 too. I’d buy it every month if it was $24.99 for the kit. $34.99 is a bit more than I can afford though.

    The email that was sent out from BurdaStyle advertises the kit at $29.99, but when I click the link it costs $34.99. How do I get the same item for the advertised price of $29.99?

    I was here to find the same as laurieday10. The email says $24.99. Can you honor that price?

    Does the legging video show you how to measure and fit the pattern to your legs? I want to avoid a sausage look on my post-baby thigh bulges.
