Knicker Making with Mary-Louise
July 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£39
This Knicker Making Workshop is a fantastic addition to your sewing skills!
Mary-Louise will be teaching a simple brief style knicker making pattern, you will find out how you can make some changes to this to suit your preference.
Make them high or low waisted or change the leg shape, as you wish. Work with quality lingerie laces and stretch fabrics using a sewing machine, no overlocking is required. Learn tips and tricks to improve your skills using less usual fabric. You will learn how to attach elastic and elasticated lace to create as bulk-free edges as possible.
Not a beginners class, you will need to have reasonably good sewing machine skills.
Requirements for this class:
A simple sewing kit (scissors, hand sewing needles, pins, tape measure etc.) this is all available to purchase in store.
A fabric and notions pack will be available to purchase on the day, including all materials required priced £5 – £8 depending on fabric choice.
We also hold separate knicker making workshops, please check the calendar for dates.
The techniques learned on this class are also a good lead into bra making.
You may get a chance to start a second pair depending on how quickly you work.
Tea and coffee will be in plentiful supply.
