Kids Clothes Week Spring has started and I have one aim, to sew knits.
And, for once I am prepared for it! The fabric has been washed, matching threads have been bought, brains have been picked on IG, I've picked two patterns to try, patterns were printed/copied and ready for cutting.
Day 1 was all about the chopping, making sure I didn't stretch the fabric as I was cutting and realising that knits are not great to be pinned to pattern pieces.
Day 2 has been about the sewing, and if you'd asked me earlier if this knit sewing was going to be a success, I might have thrown something at you, followed by a barrage of abuse. But, after a little machine pep talk (it kept eating the fabric!) I have sewn my first knit.
Whats more it's wearable!
And she can be one tricky customer!!
So the details
Flashback Skinny Tee - size 4T by Made by Rae
Sewn on my Janome MC8200qc, (using the knit stitch and overcast stitch) without an overlocker in sight and just look how neat those seams are!!!!!
So KCW Day 1 & 2 has been a massive success in my camp! Lets hope the next knit is so easy……..
