What if I could sew

What If I Could SewI can actually sew, pretty well, small things, and things I plan out myself. I have just recently voyaged into the unknown of clothes in stretchy fabrics without owning a serger, but that went really well. It’s fascinating to own tops that fits you perfectly and your don’t have to wriggle around and adjust that cotton knit top that shrunk in the first wash.

This is the wonderful Craftsy class taught me the basics of sewing with knits. It’s not free, but your certainly get your moneys worth. Meg McElwee is a great teacher that explains everything simply and clearly. And you get patterns for a top, long sleeves, short sleeves and with different necklines, a comfy hoodie, yoga pants, that cold be pyjama pants or a pair of shorts, and a dress, that of course also is customisable.
