This much requested and fun class is suitable for both beginners and more experienced makers alike. The pattern is designed for stretchy fabrics, therefore you will learn the necessary techniques to work with this fabric and construct a pair of underwear using a regular sewing machine.
There will be three different designs to choose from (from biggest to smallest variety) and at least three different elastic insertion methods. You will be guided through cutting your pattern and fabric accurately, sewing with knit fabrics and completing a pair of your future favourite knickers!
Included in the class is the pattern with detailed instructions for sizes 8-18 UK, which you get to take home and hopefully use again and again.
