Knitwit Jersey Knit Fabric Casino is a popular dressy light weight knit, suitable for tops, soft skirts or dresses.
Casino Knit is medium stretch, by which we mean 25% stretch. If your pattern is sized for a high stretch (50% stretch) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need to run the garment in.
Casino Knit is two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in one direction only, from selvedge to selvedge. If your pattern is sized for a four way stretch fabric, you can still use it.

Sewing with Jersey Knit Fabrics
For jersey knit fabrics, we use and recommend Gutermann Sew-All Thread, a top quality 100% polyester thread available in a huge range of colours to match your fabric.
You will need stretch needles for sewing knit fabrics. Use Schmetz Stretch needles – 75/11 on fine knit fabrics, and 90/14 on other knit fabrics.
Start each new project with a fresh needle, especially if the fabric contains cotton or wool. Blunt needles can leave holes on the stitching line.
Vliesofix Bondaweb Tape is a must if you want to get more professional looking hems and neck edges.
