A Beginner's Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics

Everything you need to know to make 20 essential garments by Wendy Ward (Author)

Wendy's style is functional but beautifully simplistic; you will learn the skills to make garments out of knitted fabrics that drape effortlessly and are a joy to wear. There are t-shirts, wide-leg trousers, lounge pants, tank tops, cardigans, skirts and dresses made in versatile fabrics that can be dressed up or down.


Both beginners and more experienced dressmakers often avoid using knitted fabrics, but Wendy will show you how to successfully sew them with just a regular sewing machine. You will learn essential skills with the help of a comprehensive techniques section that includes a guide to different types of knitted fabrics and their uses (including jersey, sweatshirt fabric, boiled wool and many more), how to prepare them for making clothes, setting up your sewing machine, which needles you need, sewing seams and hems, and using elastic.
