Some of you might have been lucky enough to get your hands on Wendy Ward’s new book “A Beginner’s Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics*” It was first published at the start of 2018 but immediately sold out! But now it is back and you can get your hands on it once again!
A Beginner’s Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics – A New Book by Wendy Ward
I was lucky enough to be sent a copy to review by the publishers and my choice of fabric from Minerva Crafts to create one item from the book. The blog tour which is currently taking place was of course scheduled for when the book was first released but was put off until now to accommodate the wait for the second print run to be complete.
This of course means that I have been sitting on this make for a long time and can’t wait to show you! I chose to make the Peak t shirt in a dress length. The fabric I chose was a large floral print scuba*. You can read my full review of the book and see some more pictures of my make over on the Minerva Crafts blog.
Pattern: Peak T-shirt dress from A Beginner’s Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics* by Wendy Ward
Fabric: large floral print scuba* from Minerva Crafts
Notions: Gutermann thread
I have worn this dress so much since I made it in December and it is a great everyday pattern taht will be super versatile when made in the different length options and in different weight fabrics!
As many of you will have noticed this is not the only new book in Sewing town focussing on knit fabrics…stay tuned for my next post on the Tilly and the Buttons Stretch Sewing book*…coming soon!
