Are you nervous to sew soft, stretchy, drapey knit fabrics?

Are you wanting a step-by-step tutorial showing you how easy it actually is to sew?  

Make a start on a summer closet refresh with this simple Jalie pattern for a maxi sleeveless dress. You can purchase the same pattern I used which is Jalie #3246. Purchase directly from www.jalie.com as either a paper pattern which they will ship to you, or as a PDF which you will download and print. OR you can use any similar sleeveless summer dress pattern for KNIT fabrics. Contact me if you have queries about what pattern you may already have to use? Very similar sewing construction will more than likely apply. 

I have made this pattern 3 times: twice as a maxi (the peacock ITY and the blue & green knit) and also as a midi (black and cream) which is the one featured in the video. The reason for the midi length is because I find the maxi ankle length a bit risky when going up & down stairs. I think the midi will be a more practical length for me. There is also no reason why you could not make it knee length or mini if you prefer that.  

This is a pre-recorded video with the option of support: email me if you have queries as you sew. If necessary we can do a one-on-one Zoom for me to assist & explain.

I'm offering this for an introductory price of just $25 for the video link which you can watch as often as you need PLUS it includes a PDF of notes I have compiled with loads of hints and tips for successful sewing with knit fabrics.  Once you have registered for the video tutorial, you will be sent the video link as well as the PDF Notes.  

The pattern and fabric is not included. You may purchase directly from Jalie or use another suitable pattern. Laying out the pattern and cutting the fabric is not included in the video but I am willing to answer queries you may have. 

Fabric to use for this dress: It needs to be a soft knit with plenty drape and a 40% stretch knit across the grain and 20% stretch lengthwise. ITY knit is perfect but cotton jersey, bamboo and rayon knits, tencel and other similar knits are suggested. There are several suitable fabrics on my website - for example the lovely super soft yellow/cream bamboo knit with grey berries and leaves print. https://sewwithliz.com/products/copy-of-bamboo-knit-fabric-seahorses
