Have you ever wanted to make your own knickers and matching underwear sets? Just the right waist height, just the right leg height and – above all – customised to your shape? Our Brief Encounters underwear workshop may well be the answer to your prayers!
This day-long workshop will teach you the skills you need to make your own fabulous underwear. Suitable fabrics will be discussed and you will be introduced to the various elastics and stretch lace edgings that avoid the dreaded VPL.
The fabulous Cheryl back-seam panty pattern is included in the course. First, you will trace off your size onto tissue paper. Then you will make up a test pair in soft viscose jersey (provided) and mark any alterations.
Then the fun really begins! Learn how to trim your underwear with beautiful stretch laces and edgings. In no time you will gain the skills to make matching sets for your hand-made bras and gorgeous one-off items. M&S eat your heart out!
You will need to bring along your own sewing machine and something for your lunch. Drinks are available throughout the day.
Attendees receive a 15% discount on any further supplies purchased during the course.
Classes are held in Coulsdon, Surrey and Peterborough. Please check dates for details of venue.
