How to insert a sleeve in a knit garment
With Lisa

Class Overview

Inserting a sleeve in a knit fabric garment is a bit different to doing it in a woven garment but luckily for us, it’s actually a lot easier! In this tutorial, Lisa shows you how to insert a sleeve whilst handling knit fabrics. We use our Bilberry T-Shirt as an example but you can use this technique for any knit garment that you happen to be sewing up.
