Description

We've updated this workshop format so that you can bring along other underwear patterns to make in class!

In this four hour workshop you can make our pattern for extra high waisted knickers with princess seams to feature contrasting fabrics, or bring your own pattern to make knickers. We recommend these as a great pattern following the same general process we do, and the variations we have suggested are preferred for beginners:

  • During construction you'll learn about machine knit stitches, optional finishing of seams with the overlocker, how to apply lingerie, picot edge elastic or double turn elastic. 

    This is a great choice if you have taken our 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top or Traditional T Shirt Course where we cover how to sew with knit fabrics. Alternatively, if you have made a couple of garments and are keen to try sewing with knits, a workshop with a teacher on hand is the ideal way to go about it!

I loved this class. I decided to use an evielaluve pattern for my underwear making and they turned out so great! I’m already imagining other pairs in different styles and fabrics. I’m excited to make more pairs.
