Now that you’ve got your dress cut out, it’s time to sew the side sleeves and sleeves (if you have them). I prefer sewing with a zigzag and then sometimes I serge the ends and sometimes I don’t. Knits don’t fray so it isn’t necessary; it just makes the inside look nice and gives the seams extra strength.
I recorded myself sewing one side of my shirt where I talk about some tips for sewing knits. Hopefully it’ll help you out and give you courage to sew knits.
Some people don’t like the look of a zigzag from the outside but I have found it looks pretty similar to a manufactured garment.
The side seams of my bodice and my skirt are sewn.
Tomorrow we’ll talk about elastics, casings, ties, etc so get your side seams done!
