There was a discussion in my Facebook Group recently where some ladies were saying how they find sewing with knit fabric difficult because fabric either gets jammed down in the feed dogs at the beginning of sewing (see my blog – Is your sewing machine eating your fabric when you sew? for tips on this) or it stretches so much the garment goes all out of shape.
I knew the lady who started the conversation had my Trendy Transformable Top pattern so I directed her to one of the step-by-step videos that accompany this pattern as in this video I shared a great tip that helps prevent the fabric from stretching when hemming knit fabric and this same technique can also be used when sewing a seam.
Because there was so much discussion about this, I decided to share this part of my video in a blog in the hope that it helps many of you become more confident when sewing with knit fabric.
Let me know if this helps and please if you have other tips, feel free to share them in the comments below.
