This class will help you master fitting and sewing any pattern in any knit.

Sewing with knit fabrics today is quick, easy, and very fashionable! From casual to formal wear, knit fabrics rule, but all the old “rules” don’t. Take all the best ideas from ready-to-wear to couture sewing and incorporate these techniques into your knitwear. We’ve taken the mystery out of fitting a pattern for any type of knit fabric. Every garment from the T-shirt to the draped dress should fit and suit your individual body and style. After an introductory comprehensive presentation on knit fabric types, fitting knits, and knit sewing tips, we will show you knit garments, then take you shopping to see a large variety of knit fabrics

We start with a simple top to make sure everyone understands how to fit themselves. Then, from the simple fitted top, learn how to make creative garments with design changes. We encourage you to try a variety of styles in knits such as dresses, cardigans, tops with cowl and many other neckline finishes, jackets and the no-side seam pant. Sewing advice will be given as needed.

Pati and Sue Neall (Palmer/Pletsch Australia) have also written a book on sewing knits, Knits for Real People. Pati Palmer, Marta Alto, Sue Neall and our other teachers have been experimenting with fitting knits since the 1970s. Pati has designed and written guide sheets for many of her McCall Pattern designs either for knits only or for both knits and wovens. Pamela Leggett has designed many patterns for knits (www.pamelaspatterns.com). If you have dreamed of spending four days just focusing on knit fashions, then under the guidance of our talented teachers, this workshop is for you.
