How to gather knit fabrics with clear elastic [Tutorial]

So, it has been a while, but I am adding to my Youtube channel again today, continuing on my series of videos demonstrating some basic knit sewing techniques that I use in my patterns. I will be posting more tutorial videos as well as demo videos on how to sew my patterns on there, so subscribe to my channel to get those when they are up.

How to gather with elastic

Today’s tutorial shows how to gather knit fabrics with clear elastic. This is a technique that is used in the #111 Dress, the #110 Romper,  and our brand new pattern (scroll down for some adorable tester pics) the #118 Autumn Dress. When these patterns went through testing, there were a fair few testers that had never done it before so I have put together a little video to show you exactly how straight forward it is 🙂

Check it out:

Now that that is taken care of, have a look at all the gorgeous tester pics of our new pattern the #118 Autumn Dress.

As always, thanks for reading.
