Swim, dance, skating and gymnastics … finding quality garments that flatter and wear well can be a challenge. But not if you sew! Discover all the best methods, materials and notions for creating wonderful outfits that allow for movement. Cheryl will discuss the distinctly different types of 4-way stretch fabrics available for use in activewear: for yourself, your daughter and grandchildren, for competitions and for leisure. Discover which fabrics are best for each, and which are appropriate for special occasion dresses, too. Explore innovative uses for elastic, which can provide structure and hold garments in place, along with techniques for fold-over edge elastic and binding edges. Cheryl also shares how to adjust patterns for better fit and for different sizes. For instance, learn how the pattern you bought for a leotard or top (8-10-12-14 women's size), can be adjusted so you can make a matching outfit for your daughter!
