What I've learned about sewing with knits:
Use the right ball point needle for the weight of the knit fabric.
If the knit fabric starts to get all rolly, stop.
I can not fold the knit fabric over twice and expect it not to get all rippled and rolly.
If I'm using a knit, I might be able to eliminate the zipper!
I might be a size small in New Look patterns for knit shirts. Because the shoulder seam is enormous for size medium.
Set the sleeve in first and then sew the sleeve seam and bodice seam.
Adding a flounce to the end of a sleeve is super cute!
I need to start making more shirts. I can only wear skirts and dresses for 3 months of the year.

Pharmaceuticals in the water

Is this why my bad knee suddenly felt good for an entire week?
