Learn to Sew with Knit Fabrics, for Babies and Toddlers Sewing Workshop | Chichester Sewing Courses
This class was designed with the beginner in mind, introducing and explaining techniques on working with knit fabrics on a regular domestic sewing machine. An overlocker machine can be used instead and would make the job of joining the pieces quicker and easier, but it is definitely not a must to successfully complete this project. You will be supplied with a paper pattern to use and keep for future makes. You will also be guided through, cutting your fabric, using different stitches for sewing with knit fabrics and completing a baby dress and leggings or a baby top and wide legged bottoms - you can decide this on the day! Included in the price of the class is the pattern with detailed instructions for newborn-24months, which you get to take home and use again and again.
