Wendy Ward has a degree in Fashion Design, an MA in Design and is a fully qualified teacher and fashion industry professional. She is the author of several best-selling books.

In this great book, Wendy Ward teaches you all you need to know to begin sewing clothes using knitted (stretch) fabrics on a regular sewing machine. You will progress from simple, quick-to-make tank tops to a special occasion dress with a draped skirt.

You will learn essential skills with the help of a comprehensive techniques section that includes a guide to different types of knitted fabrics and their uses, how to prepare them for making clothes, setting up your sewing machine, which needles you need, sewing seams and hems, and using elastic.

Patterns include t-shirts, wide-leg trousers, lounge pants, tank tops, cardigans, skirts and dresses.

Excellent for sewing without an overlocker

This book is very clear and easy to understand. It makes sewing stretch and knit fabrics, on an ordinary sewing machine, less daunting. It's one I keep referring to for every new project.
