Hey friends, Today I'm going to be showing you how to get the most out of your favorite patterns by trying several different RCF bases! When searching for just the right pattern, I knew that I wanted to choose something that would look good in multiple bases. My friend suggested M4M Blythe, and it was a great pick!
Next for the bases- I used Leopard Ponte De Roma, Solid Teal French Terry, Charcoal Grey Waffle, Dusty Green and Grey Houndstooth Brushed Heathered Hacci sweater knit, yarn-dyed striped Modal spandex jersey, and Tonal Hunter Green Grey and Cream Ditsy Floral Rib knit! Ponte was new for me and I am hooked!
Below I’ll share with you my favorite features of each base.
Ponte De Roma: such great structure! It almost looks, and feels like a woven with incredible stretch. I love how they dress turned out in this, but I could see a pencil skirt, blazer, and dress pants looking excellent as well.
French Terry: I am a major French Terry lover! Normally for sweatsuits, RCF stretch FT is the best ever! It’s got great stretch and recovery and it made such a beautiful and comfortable dress!
Waffle Knit: So incredibly cozy with the ultimate stretch factor. I was worried that the waffle would be see-through, but it is just the perfect weight as well. It would make amazing cardigans, pullovers, dresses, you name it!
Hacci Sweater Knit: this sweater hacci has a good weight, it’s thick and amazing! Super soft and warm for the cooler months. This would make for incredible sweaters, blazers, and even pants.
Modal: my new favorite! Holy smokes is this the most soft slinky fabric! Beautiful gathers and drape. It’s light weight, stretchy and super soft and comfortable. Highly recommend for dresses, cardigans, leggings, t-shirts and more!
Rib Knit: This is the most familiar RCF base for me. Incredibly soft, and such great drape! I love the rib because I can use it for cuffs and bands as well. This base looks elegant yet still feels SO cozy!
The fun part about using one pattern in multiple bases, is you’ll get totally different looks. I encourage everyone to try a new base, RCF has 25+ to choose from! Happy Sewing! Xoxo, Emily @Team_orosco
