This sewing with knits thing has really got me going! They’re cozy, warm, easy to make up and totally satisfying! What more could you want from a sewing project. You’ve gotta figure out a few tips/tricks to working with them since they are a bit of a different beast, and you need a few special tools; but once you got ’em…you’re golden and there’s nothing stopping you.
Here are some pics of my two newest additions to my winter wardrobe (it’ll be here before you know it…but not soon enough…what a hot summer!)
First once is this pattern off BurdaStyle. I loved the waterfall neckline. I made it out of a buttery soft bamboo jersey from Fabulous Fabrics in Balcatta.
And the second one was this one. I made this one for the nice cowl and ruched side/sleeves..a really nice touch. Again, fabric was a poly jersey from FF in Balcatta.
I just love the fact that I whipped these two babies up in a weekend!! I have tonnes of tips/tricks and construction techniques on sewing these knit wonders over at the ol’ blog http://coutureacademic.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/sewing-with-knits/.
Has anyone been to KnitWit on Stirling Hwy? Worth the trip?
Now, to wait for the day time maximums to get below 25….
