Sew Your Own Undies
Learn to sew your own undies! Making your own undergarments is all the rage right now -- it allows you to totally customize the fit to your personal preferences, AND practice your garment-construction skills on a small scale.
Join us for this four-hour workshop and stitch up a pair of boyshort-style underwear! We'll be working with the Coherence Panty pattern from indie designer Sophie Hines.
In this class, you'll learn how to:
- Measure the body accurately to create a perfect fit
- Work from a commercial pattern, including size selection, deciphering instructions, cutting fabric using pattern pieces, and more
- Understand garment sewing basics such as proper fabric prep, pinning, cutting, ironing and trouble shooting
- How to sew stretchy knit fabrics
- Attaching lace trims
The Coherence Panty pattern will be provided in class and is yours to keep! Class includes pattern and use of sewing machines and other sewing tools, but does not include fabric and lace trim. (Fabric and trim are available for purchase in our store and a 10% discount will be offered to students.)
Skill requirements: This is a beginner garment sewing workshop; you do not need to have any experience sewing clothing, but you must have basic machine-sewing skills. Our Sewing 101 class (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for this class. (You can register for one of our upcoming Sewing 101 workshops here.) If you're unsure whether you have enough sewing experience for this class, please send a brief email summarizing your sewing experience to firstname.lastname@example.org.
