Feature Fabrics Of The Week

Our latest shipment of beautiful Italian designer fabrics have arrived! The most coveted fabrics are these latest striking summer weight Italian knits, ideal for cardigans, tank tops, pull-on straight skirts and dresses. As the knits tend to move when sewing them, it’s a great idea to pin together the zig-zag stripes, keeping pins in place while you sew as well as using a walking foot when sewing down seams. If you look at Hilary’s simple tank dress closely you will notice that the stripes start off matching at the top of the side seam (underarm) and as she’s sewn down towards the hem the seams have moved slightly. Hilary has since invested in a walking foot!
