Oh, come on. You had to know that joke was coming at some point.
Anyway, I'm making my FIRST sewn garment. It's a simple, kimono-sleeve cardigan from Sewing In a Straight Line by Brett Bara. Why I chose to work with knits for my first garment ... well, I must be a glutton for punishment! LOL
BUT so far it's going okay. I read up on lots of tips about working with knits. Using a piece of tissue paper between the fabric and the feed dogs is totally keeping the knit from getting sucked into the machine. Plus, I figured out a few new things about stitch length/width with zig-zag stitches. Fun, fun! :)
And check out how smooth my seams are! No puckering! I'm pretty pleased about that!
