Well, most of you were born after the craze had passed:D
"Stretch & Sew" was a way of sewing with stretch knits.....a rather new thing in the 60's. There were books and classes taught on the techniques.
Since stretch knit fabric was a rather new thing at the time.......it became a hit!
My sis and I took classes on sewing undies, t-shirts and even swim suits.
Once sewing became passe,
cloth stores closed and sewing machines were put into storage.
With the new resurgence of handmade, green, economical, thrifty
.......we are seeing more fabric available at the local level
not to mention that which can be found online!
SEWING is back....YEA!
I have been finding more cotton knits available in stores
decided to dig out the old methods now that I have a SERGER!
My first try has been some t-shirts
and am I surprised
how fast and easy they are......
I had almost forgotten:D
With the help of my new Serger and a Burda pattern
borrowed from a friend,
I have completed my first T-Shirts and vow to make many more.....
