I finally delved into the world of jersey knit fabric. My new Bernina sewing computer came complete with an overlock stitch, as opposed to my old machine that was certainly NOT a sewing computer or buying a serger (which is not totally out of the question). So...I went for it! I have made the boys sweatshirts so I am not a total rookie sewing with knit. I am clearly not PRO either. That being the case, I made a maternity dress that I found on this pretty awesome blog. I had to take it in a TON (not b/c I am skinny...that is not what I am saying. I am most definitely NOT skinny right now. Heck, I had two reese's pb easter eggs today). I love the fabric! The color is fab, for sure! Okay, here you go!
Please excuse my filthy house. I have boxes stacked to my head, as we move to AZ soon. I HAD to finish the hem of this dress before we leave. I was going c.r.a.z.y. just thinking about it. Anyhow, I debuted it at church today and I love how it turned out! I am not entirely sure I will be sewing a lot with jersey knits but I do like a few things about it. Namely: 1. It is very forgiving, both in wear and sewing! 2. No ragged or frayed edges.
I finished another dress yesterday too and I will post that next week. No more sewing till we get settled in in AZ! By then I will know if we are having a baby Doris or a baby Wayne! I will be able to put my new sewing computer to good use making things for the new little nugget! Peace.
