INTRO TO JERSEY

SEW A WARDROBE STAPLE

Learn to sew knit fabric on a regular sewing machine with this Intro to Jersey course. If you have never sewn with Jersey before, let me show you the ropes.

Agnes is a close-fitting top finished with a narrow neckband. Irresistibly wearable and endlessly versatile, make it with long or cropped sleeves, plain or ruched at the shoulder and scoop neckline or ruched sweetheart neckline. Agnes is a wardrobe staple you'll make again and again!

And, with those Jersey scraps, we will also make your a comfy pair of knickers.

In the first session we will trace the pattern and cut your fabric for the top and your pair of undies.

In the second session, we will construct the top, get crisp neckband, sewing sleeves and twin needle or zig zag the neckline and hems.

In the third session, we make your pair of knickers ensuring we will have very little scrap fabric for a more sustainable sewing experience.
