Even people who are comfortable sewing with knits tend to shy away from our theme for today: stretch lace and elastic. Our awesome guest posters tackle them with ease, and I hope you’ll check out their tutorials and “stretch yourself” a bit, too (I couldn’t help myself.)
There is something about lace that makes folks nervous, so add some stretch and it’s like double trouble! Jodi from Sew Fearless shows us all that sewing with stretch lace can be done beautifully. I can’t wait to see how she made this fantastic cardigan, because I have to have one! Head to the detailed tutorial at Sew Fearless today to check it out.
Novita from Very Purple Person rocks the knits, man. I love these hip, striped undies the made with a few different varieties of elastic! I can’t wait to hop over to Very Purple Person’s tutorial to learn from her immense skill set! Don’t miss it.
