Learn techniques for working with tricky fabrics, and make yourself a comfortable set of bra and pants!
If it's ever seemed wholly impossible to find a bra or pants that fit well, then here's a chance to right this grievous wrong. This course is a step-by-step guide on how you can, using a standard domestic sewing machine , create a very comfortable and well fitted bra along with a matching set of pants. There will also be the option of learning to use the overlocker and cover lock machine for sewing undergarments.
In the safe hands of our expert, Hazel Lethaby, students will be introduced to the use of stretch fabrics and learn to use them to their maximum potential, creating undergarments that fit your curves as they should. Learn to personalise the Watson Bra & Pants, adjusting the strap length, altering the bridge and fitting the cups to your own unique shape.
And if you're shy, don't worry too much. We've now got a changing room at The Stitchery, where you'll be able to do your fitting in private.
Please note that this course is a Growing Beginner course, which means that you must have at least a basic level of garment construction experience, having made at least one garment. If you've got a couple of projects under your belt, that will probably stand you in good stead. If you've never made an item of clothing before, but wish to take this course, you may consider first having some private tuition or taking a Making Clothes for Beginners course.
(Also, note there will be no class on October 31st, Halloween)
When you come to book your place on this course, you'll be asked to provide us with your waist, hip, and bust measurements in Inches, plus your bra cup size. If you're not sure how to take these measurements, check out our blog post on this subject.
