Sew up your own posh pants
Looking to sew something special for yourself? Or make some wonderful presents?
Some lacey little panties are the perfect way to spice up your sewing and get started with stretch fabrics, fancy trims, and special laces. You should already be comfortable using a sewing machine, and this class will cover stretch fabric basics and the application of elastic.
* You'll be using a pdf pattern to create either a thong, or a simple brief with stretch lace sides, gusset, and elasticated edges
* Learn the secrets of lace placement to best take advantage of motifs and scalloped edges
* Discover the clever "burrito method" of enclosed seams
* Learn how to neatly apply lingerie elastic to get a high-end finish
These pants are also a great way to use up little scraps of stretch fabrics from other projects, well-loved teeshirts, or even refashion some existing lingerie, so feel free to bring along fabrics and stretch laces you'd like to use, or we'll have a selection available on the day too.
