MAKE A KINDER CARDIGAN FROM “BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO SEWING WITH KNITTED FABRICS”

SUNDAY 20th October 10am – 4pm

Beginners Guide to Sewing with Knits

This class is ideal for beginners and don’t be scared of sewing knitted fabrics, we’ll be using a regular sewing machine and Wendy will guide you through setting up the machine to sew stretch fabrics – it’s a lot easier than you think.

The Kinder Cardigan is a simple open cardigan without any fastenings. It is easy to wear and easy and quick to sew. It will quickly earn its place in your wardrobe as one of your go-to pieces.

You can make the cardigan in three lengths; short, which just skims the hip bone and looks great with fitted skirts and wide leg trousers; mid-length, which comes to just below hip (and yes, covers your bum); or full length, which is just below knee length and looks great with more fitted styles such as skinny jeans or leggings. There is also a choice of short or long sleeves, both finished with a cuff, and for the two longer versions you can add roomy patch pockets.

NOTE: the patterns are in 10 sizes which cover the following body measurement range: bust 80-121cm (31 1/2 to 47 3/4 ins), waist 64-105cm (25 to 41 1/2 ins), hips 88-129cm (34 1/2 to 51 ins).

Suitable for absolute beginners and those with a bit of sewing experienceincludes a signed copy of the book (which contains 20 projects and a comprehensive sewing with knits techniques section) to take home and make more.
