Sewing knitted fabrics was today demystified for another 5 students and the world of making wearable, comfortable, easy, modern clothes welcomed 5 more converts!
This workshop really is the workshop that keeps on giving! Almost always fully booked with a waiting list, I’m never disappointed by what students create in a day. I think my students leave feeling pretty good too. Here’s what today’s batch made:
Two cowl neck tunics/dresses by Andrea and Sally. Completely different looks all down to fabric choice! This pattern will soon be available to buy.
A lovely striped straight neck dress by Assuntina (with an excellent bit of stripe matching!) and an asymmetric fold-over waist skirt by Gehya. Both these patterns are available to buy online from MIY Collection.
Last but not least, a gorgeous orange drapey cardi was soooo close to being finished, but I have been promised photographs of the end result.
I find this workshop really satisfying to teach. I use 9 sewing patterns of my own design and I’m always surprised by how many different versions of the same patterns my students manage to make.
Here’s what the students thought of the day:
“My first time sewing with knits was great. Wendy’s pattern was easy and straightforward and thanks to her prior instructions I had all the right things with me. As always Wendy was a wonderful teacher. She’s patient, clear and fun to be around. Looking forward to more workshops and classes.” Assuntina
“I’ve had a wonderful day at MIY Workshop as usual. Wendy’s been very helpful in giving guidance for sewing knits. I haven’t had time to finish my cardi but I already know it’s gonna look gorgeous!” Maelenn
“Lovely course, great to go home with a finished garment. Very informative providing lots of useful tips and instructions. Thanks Wendy!” Gehya
“A very enjoyable and inspiring day. I have learnt some new and useful tips and am keen to do more with renewed confidence.” Andrea
“I’ve had a really lovely day learning about sewing with knits. Wendy’s a great teacher – very patient and clear with instructions.” Sally
Thanks to all my students and I hope you all enjoy your fabulous new garments!
