Tired of paying for knickers that creep up and slide down and pinch and show through everything?  The obvious solution is to make your own!

Make your own knickers classMaking knickers is very easy, very fun, and if you are using scraps left over from making T-shirts or other knit garments, or making merino knickers, extremely cost effective.

In this class we’ll cover  the absolute basics of sewing with knit fabric (so if you aren’t quite ready for the T-shirt class, this is a great way to work up to it), and an introduction to taking patterns from already made garments.

We’ll start by making a simple pair of knickers from Leimomi’s pattern, and you’ll learn how to customise the pattern to your preferred knicker style: high waist, low rise, bikini, brief, hipster etc.

Make your own knickers classThen you’ll learn how to take a pattern from existing pair of knickers (using brand-new examples of a few styles, so that no one is asked to bring in an old pair ;-) ), so that you can go home and take a pattern off your favourite pair.  You can also use the techniques taught to take patterns off any of your most-beloved garments.

Finally, you’ll learn the two most effective methods for constructing and finishing knickers, so you can decide which you prefer and go home and whip them up by the dozens!

This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from high beginner/low intermediate upwards.

Materials: students must supply their own knit fabric in a natural fibre for 2 pairs of knickers.  Fabric and materials guidelines will be provided upon registration.

Cost: $70 (includes elastic for two pairs of knickers, pattern, & patterning tissue)
