Blue knit top

I wish I could turn this picture right side up. ha. I used a one way stretch knit. I found the zig zag stitch worked the best. I used pins to keep the fabric straight while cutting it. I hold both hands on the fabric to keep it straight so it doesn't slip. I also use a tweezer to keep the fabric straight close to the needle. I used stay tape at he shoulders to keep it from stretching. I used stay tape for the hems. I have to do a lot of adjusting a pattern because I am petite. What I like about knits is it is so comfortable and easy to to fit any size. I also made a draped dress with this knit material.
