Knit fabric dress patterns are so easy to sew and so forgiving in fitting that it’s no wonder that they are usually a staple part of many home sewn wardrobes. These fabrics have their fibres knitted together rather than woven. The main characteristics of this fabric group is that it’s stretchy and the edges do not fray. It includes materials such as cotton jersey, polyester jersey, scuba, neoprene. This means that it may need a little more consideration while sewing not to stretch it out of shape, but you’ll be rewarded for your effort in an easy fitting, quick to sew dress without having to worry about zippers or buttons.
