Knit or woven?

This fabric came from The Fabric Store. I bought it in November with a view to playing with it for winter. It’s a chardonnay/verdehlo fabric.

Because I have a couple of pair of brown boots, they finish this dress off really well.

This fabric is a double knit but looks like corduroy. This seams must be overlocked. I was fooled into thinking that they would be fine, unfinished.


I originally left the sleeve hems unfinished because the selvedge is on the sleeve hem looks like a really short fringe. Since wearing it for a day, I’ve overlocked and finshed the sleeve hem.

Sewing hints

  • foldover elastic was used for the neckline.
  • The seams are overlocked.
  • seams great was used on the shoulder seam
  • I’ve reinforced the sleeve head.

The brown knit jacket is coming up next, using fabric from Knitwit direct (7 years ago). Definitely a red wine fabric.
