I was one of the few people that learned to sew knit fabric before woven fabric. I had sewn with woven fabric first, and I kind of hated it. Eventually I learned to sew all types of fabric, but I still love sewing with knit fabric.

The best knit fabrics to start with is jersey knit like cotton spandex jersey or double brushed polyester jersey. All of these projects are used with one of these two fabrics (or variations of them), so you can get sewing knit fabric!

What is Jersey Knit Fabric?

Jersey knit fabric is yarns or threads looped around each other. When the fabric is pulled the the loops pull against each other. The space in between creates space for the fabric to move and stretch.

Jersey fabric comes in all weights and stretches. It can be made from lots of different fibers and fiber blends. Clothing made from jersey is more often tight and fitted. Some of them don’t drape that well, but it really depends on the fabric.
