We will walk you through all the steps of preparing and cutting your knicker pattern from the fabric of your choice. (We love to make these from leftover fabric from clothes we have made before so we can match our outfits)!!
Once you are cut out we will show you how to sew the knickers together and add elastic to the waist and leg holes to complete the garment.
This is a beginner-friendly project, no previous dressmaking experience is required, but you will need to know how to operate a sewing machine.
You will need 2.5 metres of fold over elastic (measuring at least 2cm wide or wider) in a colour to match or stand out from your chosen fabric. 1/2 metre of stretch jersey fabric with a minimum of 20% stretch. It needs to have a good bounce back when you stretch it and not struggle to pull out or lose it’s pattern/turn white when you stretch to ensure your bottom will fit in nicely (Not saying you have a big bottom) 😉
You will need to have a rotary cutter and mat (ideally) or scissors, pins and or clips, Sewing machine threaded in the colour of your elastic. A Stretch needle in your machine. Sticky tape and paper scissors. We will send you details of the pattern to print out ahead of class when you book your place. It is a free download.
The class will take place via Zoom. Please make sure you have downloaded Zoom Cloud Meetings to your device ahead of class. We suggest using a device that you can put to the side and watch clearly such as a laptop or ipad. You can join the meeting from a phone as well so that you can use the phone to show the teacher any issues or problems you have close up if you choose to do this, please plug headphones into the phone jack so that you will not get feedback.
