Prior to this class, I had not tried sewing with a sweater knit. After taking this class with Janice, I feel quite comfortable trying patterns using a sweater knit. In the class, I used a pattern from the 1990’s and made adjustments with the help of Janice to update the look. I am so ever pleased with the result! I have had complements on my new updated top! I am now planning on making more tops with my new confidence in using Sweater Knits.
