Stretchy knit garments are the most essential wardrobe staples for many of us--t-shirts and leggings, anyone?--so why not learn to make them? In this class we will shed light on how to fit and sew with knit fabrics using a standard home machine. That's right, no sergers in sight! We will review general principles of working with knit fabrics, how to select your size and think about the fit of knit garments, and the unique considerations involved in constructing a garment. The simple and versatile Grainline Linden sweatshirt and the True Bias Hudson pants provide the perfect canvas for you to get comfy with sewing comfy clothes! Menswear pattern options are available on request.
You will receive print copies of both patterns included in your class fee. Since sewing clothes is all about expressing your unique style, we will have you provide your own fabric. Students receive a 10% discount on class supplies purchased at Notion. Using Notion’s detailed video tutorials and the pattern instructions, you will work on the two projects at your own pace. Class participants will then come together for weekly live group video sessions to troubleshoot, share successes, and ask questions. With our support and camaraderie, you’ll have an entire handmade lounge set before you know it!
