Sewing with Stretch Knits

My ever-popular workshop on sewing with stretch knits happened again at MIY Workshop yesterday.  You can read a full write-up of it here.

MIY Collection patterns are used at the workshop and here are some of the brilliant creations that my students whipped up in only 6 hours…

These 4 garments were all made from the MIY Collection Straight Neck Vest and Dress pattern.  You can get such a different look depending on what fabric you use.  In the top picture from left to right we’ve got a lightweight loopback sweatshirt fabric, a lightweight jersey and a ponte roma and in the second picture above, another sweatshirt fabric.

This is going to be my next MIY Collection pattern – a cowl neck long sleeve top or dress.  This one is made in the ideal fabric: a lightweight drapey viscose jersey.

If you don’t know your jersey’s from your ponte’s have a read of my little fabric dictionary here.

If you fancy having a go yourself, MIY Collection sewing patterns are available on Etsy, just follow this link to my shop: http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MIYcollection
