Tired of boring high street knickers? Sew your own! You’ll choose from a wide selection of fabrics to make a pair of side-tie or regular seam briefs in class, then take away patterns and instructions to create more at home.
See class photos here.
You’ll learn to:
- Take your measurements correctly
- Cut fabric to size on the bias
- Insert elastic at hips and legs
- Trim with ribbons, roses and more
- Take home a pattern to keep stitching at home.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an absolute beginner’s sewing class. You should be confident sewing straight and curved seams as inserting elastic can be tricky! If you haven’t sewn recently, start your sewing journey with one of our Learn to Sew workshops and have a few projects under your belt before coming to class: Cushion Cover or Tote Bags)
- Level: Advanced Beginners Only
