And alas–We are updating one of our very first sewing tutorials here on the blog: How to sew a knit seam binding! Because sewing a knit binding is 1,000% different than sewing a woven binding. (As I learned quickly with this tutorial’s sewing project-- the Ilma Raglan.)
I have been meaning to update this post for a while now–-pretty much all year–-but then 2020 decided to show up. And my posting schedule for the year was basically thrown out the window. Earlier this spring (for weeks on end) I was sewing our handmade face masks 10+ hours a day, nonstop. The fear of the pandemic and the immediate need for face masks (as well as the DIY tutorial) essentially shoved everything else aside.
Which means.. In the midst of a 90+ degree heat wave here in San Diego, I am rewriting our post on a spring sweater that was meant to inspire some transitional weather sewing. Also, in recent weeks, it has just felt silly to pay attention to and direct my energy towards anything else but the Black Lives Matter movement.
