My First Experience Of Sewing With Knit Fabric
I received the 'Gertie Sews Vintage Casual' book for Christmas and have to say it is fantastic! I spent ages just reading through it and making notes of additional bits and pieces I wanted to buy. I do love to have an excuse to buy new sewing supplies. I quite fancied the idea of sewing one of the knit tops but considering I'd never sewn with a knit fabric before I was a little nervous. Then I saw that Evie from Pendlestitches was offering a few metres of a navy and white striped knit fabric for sale. I took this as a sign that I should take the plunge and have a go, so bought the fabric and away I went. I also decided to invest in a walking foot for my machine and taking Gerties advice, bought some ballpoint needles and a Twin needle too.
