Hi, it’s Amanda from LoveCraftSew on the blog today to bring you Fall inspiration for sewing with rib knit!
I love all the CLUB fabrics I have purchased from Raspberry Creek Fabrics (especially the French Terry!) and was so excited to see new bases available for CLUB prints. Rib knit is quickly becoming one of my favorite bases to work with so I knew I had to try RCF CLUB rib.
I have been swooning over the Teal Watercolor Floral print in the Forever Collection and it has the perfect coloring for Fall sewing. This fabric is available in both the rib knit I used and in the double brushed poly base. Both of these fabric bases are a 9 oz weight and have 4 way stretch.
I wanted to sew up two completely different looks with this fabric to show just how versatile it is! First, I sewed an Aaronica Romper from Made for Mermaids for my oldest daughter. The pants option make it perfect for transitioning to Fall but the short sleeves and back cut-out keep her cool enough in the waning summer heat as well.
Next, I sewed a leotard for my youngest daughter. I chose the elbow length sleeves to make this a staple piece this Fall with knee socks and boots or a pair of skinny jeans. I used the Juliet pattern from Petite Stitchery for her leotard.
For more details on these makes head over to my blog or my instagram. I hope you are inspired by these looks and can’t wait to see what you sew up with CLUB rib knits! Don’t forget to share in the Facebook group as well😊
