When I told my mom about the next project I had in mind, she asked if I was ready to work with knit fabrics. If you’ve never worked with knits before, they can be tricky. I had such a difficult time just laying out my fabric so I could place my pattern pieces. And sewing it can be even scarier, since it stretches, you have the possibility of stretching the fabric while feeding it through the sewing machine! But I was, and am, up to the challenge.
This is Butterick 5495, a kind of a tunic. There’s two different lengths: I’m doing the shorter of the two. Some of the women who’ve made this pattern have even lengthened the longest style to make cute knit dresses. The other option is with or without sleeves. I was so ambitious to do this pattern that I picked up fabric to do the style with sleeves (short length, again) after I finish the sleeveless tunic.Share on Facebook
