The Beginner’s Guide to Sewing Knit Apparel

Welcome to the Beginner’s Guide to Sewing Knit Apparel! I am so insanely excited to share this blog series with you!

I wrote this series because I’ve had so many friends take an interest in sewing their own knit clothing but can’t seem to take the plunge because there is so much to learn. And you know what…I’ve been there!

This blog series is essentially a collection of all of the little tips, tricks and techniques I spent my first two years learning while sewing knit clothing. It was a long and arduous process because I didn’t know what I didn’t know. Not only did I spend tons of money but also an incredible amount of time figuring all of this out. A Google search here, YouTube video there, tons of Facebook group questions and hours of trial and error.

My hope for this series is to help anyone intimidated by the process of making their own knit clothing feel confident in doing so.

Never again should a willing woman have to quest through the vast world wide web to find answers to basic questions when it comes to sewing with knits, because it’s all right here!
