Last Sunday was another “Sewing with Knits” workshop. I had 4 eager students all new to and a bit fearful of sewing stretch knit fabrics.
But, after 6 hours of hard work look at what they left with!
From left to right: Teruka in her very wearable vest dress in grey rib from Ditto, Dawn in a very cute asymmetric red jersey skirt and Michelle in another asymmetric skirt made in 2 different fabrics from Ditto – one half of her skirt is a lovely heavy ponte roma, the other side a jersey covered with tiny black sequins. A perfect party season skirt! Jingya also got a good way along with making a lovely draped neck dress from a Vogue pattern. (You see, those other patterns just aren’t as quick to finish as mine….!!)
Here’s what the group thought of the day:
“I had a lovely afternoon at MIY Workshop, Wendy was always on hand to help with my garment. I’m looking forward to wearing my new skirt!” Dawn
“I have never made anything with jersey fabric before and really enjoyed this workshop. Wendy was friendly and very helpful and I would like to do more workshops.” Teruka
“The day was very interesting, I really enjoyed sewing the skirt. Wendy is very friendly and patient and I will be back for sure.” Michelle
If you want to learn how to sew knitted fabrics my next workshop is on Sunday 30th March 2014. Full details can be found here.
