About the Course
Does the thought of sewing with jersey knits make you break out in a cold sweat? Fear not we will show you how to tackle this most forgiving of fabrics.
In the morning we will show you a range of different ways of sewing jersey knits both with an overlocker and an ordinary sewing machine. You will try these out and keep a record of your samples to refer back to when making up jersey at home.
Then in the afternoon you can put into practice what you've learnt to make up your own t-shirt using the right techniques and skills.
You will need to have done some dressmaking before but not necessarily used an overlocker.
"Was a bit nervous that I wouldn't have the skills needed as I'm a bit rusty on the sewing machine. I shouldn't have worried as the day was so relaxed and perfectly easy to follow. Lots of space for each person. I learnt so much in one day and yes I'm another overlocker convert! There was plenty of time to make a T-shirt and I wore it home! Expect to eat cake and more cake and be made lots of cuppas."
