French knickers & tap pants
June 6, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Thursday evenings 6 & 13 June 6-8.30pm (2 sessions)
Make yourself a pair of pretty, sexy, lace trimmed vintage inspired french knickers (also known as tap pants, cami-knickers and lingerie shorts) to wear under your frocks in case of sudden gusts of wind, or as pyjamas or lingerie.
Over two evenings we’ll cover a little lingerie history, learn how to make tap pants with the option of a side placket opening or an elasticated waist, and do lace applique to trim them.
Level 3: Suitable for those with Intermediate & higher sewing experience
Materials: Students must supply their own fabric and lace, a materials list will be provided on registration.
Cost: $70 (includes a pattern and elastic or bias tape and hooks and eyes). Patterns are available for 64 to 106cm waists.
