Do you fancy making a pair of knickers? We all need them! The Lulu knickers makes for a really fun, quick project. The pattern comes in three different styles to suit most personal preferences - high-waisted retro style, providing full coverage and maximum comfort (and warmth!), a lower-waisted style that sits at hip level and finally a thong. There's something in this pattern for everyone!
This fun and practical pattern is suitable for beginner and experienced makers alike. You will learn techniques for sewing knit / jersey fabrics using a regular sewing machine as well as three different elastic applications.
This sewing pattern for underwear was created by one of our brilliant tutors here at Clothkits in Chichester, Dhurata Davies, and she also teaches this pattern in her Knicker Making Workshop.
