In our intro to knits class, students will make a classic t-shirt on a serger. If you're a bit intimidated to sew stretchy fabrics but want to, and you’d love to learn to use a serger, this class is a great way to dive into knits. In this class, you'll learn to work with knits, cut a pattern from them, & sew them on a serger and get tips and info for sewing knits at home on a sewing machine. 

Skills you will learn: 

  • Concepts of reading a sewing pattern
  • How to pin and cut knit fabric
  • Tips for sewing knits
  • Basics of using a serger
  • How to sew a garment on a serger
  • How to sew in a straight line and how to sew curves

Skills expected:

You've used a sewing machine before and have sewn a few simple projects and understand some garment pattern concepts. You've taken either our Essential Shirt class or have made a beginner garment before. 

Materials needed: You'll need light to medium weight jersey knit fabric with 30% stretch.  It's best to pre-wash your fabric to allow for any shrinkage before sewing. You'll need to have your fabric cut out and ready to sew in class. If you need help cutting out, let us know.  See the size chart for the Closet Core T (women's T) and see the size chart for the Wardrobe by Me Men's Tee.

If you need help choosing fabric, or need help figuring out how much to buy, reach out to - Art Gallery Jersey Knits are great for t-shirts. If you google that brand you'll find a number of places that sell it. 

Materials providedThe Closet Core tee pattern or Wardrobe By Me pattern, a sewing machine, coordinating thread, fabric shears, pins, marking tools, measuring tape, an iron and ironing board.

Please let us know at checkout if you want the women's T (Closet Core pattern) or men's t (Wardrobe by Me pattern)
