Sewing Knits: Leggings // 1 Day // Jan 23
Learn to sew with knits! Stretchy fabrics make up a large portion of our daily wardrobe from loungewear to activewear, so why not learn to sew with them? We lead you through the basics so you understand the characteristics of knit fabrics and how to tame them.
Workshop project: Participants will create a pair of women's leggings: the Virginia Leggings by Megan Nielsen. Available in sizes 0-20 or 14-30.
- Cutting knits accurately
- Sewing with knits on a regular sewing machine or a serger
- Attaching elastic
- Sewing a waistband
Pattern Description (from the designer's site): "The ultimate pair of basic leggings with elasticated waist. Pattern features two rises and extra length to allow easy adjustments and a scrunched look at the ankles. Version 1 sits at the natural waistline. Version 2 is low rise and ideal for maternity."
Make them in activewear fabric to wear to the gym, soft cotton jersey to wear around the house, or a snazzy print to wear as a fashion statement.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate. You MUST already feel comfortable threading and using a sewing machine, but may be new to sewing garments. If you are a novice sewer, please check out our Sewing 101 course first!
Pattern and materials are not included. You will be expected to print/assemble the pattern before class. An instructor will reach out to you with the supply list and other instructions ahead of time.
