Sewing with Jersey Fabric – Jersey Day!

Sewing Jersey Fabric dress by Lizzie - Jane White Couture Tuition

Nicknamed ‘Jersey Day’ by our sewers, our Sewing with Jersey Fabric workshop is a great way to get sewing with jersey and knit fabrics.

Use an overlocker and sewing machine to make either a T-shirt, tunic top, leggings or a simple dress. Be inspired by Lizzie (pictured) and make your own beautiful jersey garment!

Sewing jersey fabric, not as tricky as you think

Jane will guide you through matching the jersey fabric and pattern and how to ‘test the stretch’. Learn how to set up your overlocker for professional stitching.

Add neckbands with an even, flat fit.

Use the coverstitch machine or a twin needle for jersey hemming.

Bring along your own overlocker and sewing machine or use one of the studio machines.

Learn to love jersey!
