Choose your own adventure

Knit dress. (I should have modeled it, it's way cuter on a person!)

Make your own at Modern Domestic! We will be using the Built by Wendy book, Sew U Home Stretch (at Amazon(dot)com for $10 right now!). I just finished reading through the whole book and it's really a good one. All you need to know about sewing on knit fabrics, without too many details to confuse. And it comes with a lot of basic patterns.

Class will be held Sundays, April 18th and 25th, 2pm-4pm.

We will spend the first day of class drafting the pattern for the dress you choose. You decide sleeve length, neckline (boat, scoop, v-neck), waistline (empire, regular, lowered), and skirt (gathered or not, flared or straight, long or short). And of course you get to choose your fabric and optional trim for a dress that is truly you. How lucky!

If you have successfully made something else out of knit fabric, come join us!
New to knits? Take the t-shirt class that is offered April 11th, 12pm-4pm.

Very fun! I've been hand-sewing envelope pillow covers. I might even try something more complex with my mom this weekend. Pillow covers are apparently a gateway drug ...

I love that flowery dress. I have one similar but the bust bit is longer (I have large cup size so need more room).

Do you really need a stretch stitch to sew stretch fabric please, as my Elna doesn't have fancy stitches only zig zag.
