Knit Basics

Working with knits is not difficult once you understand the direction and amount of stretch available. On this episode of Sewing With Nancy, Nancy reviews knit stretch directions, right/wrong sides of fabric and options for overlaying knit designs with each other.

Layout & Sewing Basics

Arranging the pattern pieces on knit fabrics is slightly different than woven fabrics. Interfacing, hemlines, and managing stretch are also areas to review before starting this tunic top pattern. Whether you are using a serger or special stitch on the sewing machine, this top is a snap to create.  Learn a few additional rules-of-thumb and guidelines in this Sewing Today’s Fashion Trends episode.

Trendy Details

Trendy details can easily be included when using the “Less is Best” philosophy of sewing. Yet, the results are anything but lack luster. Next, learn how to sew simple even when style is added on Sewing With Nancy.
