    Can I ask you lovely ladies for tips on sewing with jersey... I'd like to make some comfy pyjamas for the boys from lillestoff jersey. I have heard it's a little difficult to work with but I'm not sure if there is any truth to it. Any tips before I invest in some? Thanks xx

    I’ve not sewn with it, but I’ve heard using a walking foot on your sewing machine makes it easier. Hopefully someone else can provide you with more info!

    I prefer sewing with knit rather than cotton. I find it more forgiving. Lillestoff an be a little on the thin side. Where are you looking to buy?

    I'm a tad obsessed with elydactyl atm but not the specific prints people have stocked in Aus atm.

    I got these. Plus some yellow ribbing. I'm loving the retro stuff atm. Screenshot_20200207-220650_Samsung%20Internet.jpgScreenshot_20200207-220719_Samsung%20Internet.jpg
