Sewing With Knits with Meg McElwee

Hello!  I don't know if anyone is still following along.  My new Mac computer has been giving me a run for my money.  I love it, but it's confusing me in regard to blogging.  I'll get the hang of it eventually!!
A few months ago I enrolled in the Craftsy class, Sewing With Knits.  I've been sewing with knits for a few years and really enjoy it.  This class comes with a goldmine of basic patterns: a hoodie, v-neck and scoopneck t shirts, yoga pants, a skirt, and my favorite, the Surplice Dress.

This is what I've made so far with the patterns...
(FYI the links will show you more info/photos on each project)

I highly recommend the class!


Since I was in the mood for sewing with knits already, I also completed this short sleeved top,

It's made of this lycra jersey from Girl Charlee, which is very soft.

Now it's a little too cold for short sleeved shirts, too bad!!


  1. Well, I'm relatively new to your blog but I'm definitely here :) Can't remember how I found you but I really enjoy seeing what you've been sewing. It really inspires me to do more myself. Am very tempted by that Craftsy class - I've been leary about knit fabrics and I really would like to have a go as I'm currently pregnant and have some lovely maternity patterns that I should really try before it is too late.

    1. Definitely! Once you get the hang of it, it's actually faster than sewing wovens because more stretch = less fitting problems. Plus there are a ton of cute knit patterns for babies and kids that you can whip up fast! Congratulations on your new addition! :)

  2. Wow - this look like something I am ready for. I think once the holidays wind down this will be my January project!

  3. I love those first two! Everything looks so amazing!

  4. Love the surplice dress! You did an amazing job.

  5. I think that is one of the such a lot vital information for me.
