Preparing Knit Fabric for Sewing
Wash and dry your fabric. DO NOT use dryer sheets. You will use the static to your advantage later on!
Use the safety pin to match the original folds in the centre, and lay flat, creating a new fold for the front and back of your t-shirt.
Lay down your pattern pieces for the front and back of your t-shirt. Center front and center back on the new folds you have made.
If you are using swedish tracing web for your pattern pieces, smooth it onto your fabric, and the static will hold it in place. Cut out both pieces.
Fold back your fabric to original folds, and put on your sleeve and neck bend.
Now you are ready to sew!
