Hi Everyone! Let's talk about sewing swimsuits! Does the idea make you cringe? Hopefully not, but if so, this course is designed to take the fear out of sewing with this oh-so-stretchy fabric! Over this four-part topic, we will take a look at different types of swim fabrics, the stitch types that work best, the recommended needles and machine settings, stress-saving tips like the use of fold-over elastic, sewing swimsuits with woven fabrics, and of course teeny tiny accessories to complete the look!
The topic will be divided into four sessions:
I'll be demonstrating these methods using several different Liberty Jane designs, as well as some others from the Pixie Faire swimsuit pattern collection, to help illustrate how the basic techniques and methods are used at a smaller scale. Follow along to understand my thought process, hopefully watching me in action will clarify any concerns or issues you may have with these types of techniques.
It's going to be a fun course! Are you ready? Let's go...
