I have a new post on the Minerva crafts blog ! Here’s a quick summary but be sure to read the full post here.
As many of you will know already, I love to sew with knit fabrics! and so when Minerva Crafts sent me some of their gorgeous spandex stretch jersey* to review I was delighted and couldn’t wait to get sewing!
With the two recent book releases from Wendy Ward* and Tilly and the Buttons* both dedicated to sewing with knits I had plenty choice of patterns. This time, I chose to make the Joni dress from Tilly and the Buttons’ book – Stretch! Make Yourself Comfortable Sewing with Knit Fabrics*.
You can read about how I got on with the fabric and see more pictures of my dress over on the Minerva Crafts blog.
Pattern: Joni dress from Tilly and the Buttons’ book – Stretch! Make Yourself Comfortable Sewing with Knit Fabrics*
Notions: 5mm Elastic
Alterations: Size 3 – small amount of extra room added to bust (approx 5mm)
I think my Joni dress is my new favourite make (the newest is always my favourite!). I loved making it so much that I think I will have to buy some more of this fabric in a few different colours to make some more!
