Undies Live Virtual Workshop // Oct 25
Yup, you heard that right. We're making undies! We're taking one of our popular one-day workshops to Zoom (live!) so you can whip up a pair with us from home.
If you have no idea why anyone would ever bother with sewing their own underwear, here's our reasoning: 1) You can customize the fit! We all know how important a good fit is for your all-day comfort level. 2) It's more cost-effective and FAST once you know the techniques. 3) It's a great scrap buster. If you have leftover fabrics from tees or leggings you've made, use those weird-shaped scraps to bust out some new pairs. 4) It's totally fun. And that's why we're all here, right?
Join us for this quick one-day LIVE VIRTUAL workshop where you get to whip up a pair of undies in your favorite style. Are you a high-waisted full-coverage kinda person, or are you more daring and cheeky? Choose your own unda-venture.
- Cutting and sewing stretch fabric
- Working with various type of finishing elastic
Styles include hipster, bikini or cheeky panties with low-rise, mid-rise or high-rise options.
Skill Level: Intermediate or Advanced Beginner ready for a challenge. This is a relatively quick project with few pattern pieces, but it requires finesse to work with knits and stretch and sew elastic. You MUST already feel comfortable threading and operating a sewing machine and sewing at an accurate seam allowance. It's okay if you're new to sewing garments, but you should feel somewhat comfortable cutting out fabric on your own since that will be required ahead of class.
Virtual Class Info: This is a VIRTUAL CLASS hosted live on Zoom. After registering, you will receive an email from the instructor with Zoom access instructions as well as the supply list and any other information you may need to participate. You will log in at the designated times, and the instructor will walk you and the other participants through each step of the construction process. We will record the Zoom meeting and you can re-watch any part of the class, so even if you need to miss part of the live class you can still catch up.
Pattern and materials not included. You will receive the supply list from the instructor with details about how to get the pattern and what fabrics to search for. You will be expected to cut your fabric ahead of time so the class will focus on sewing only. We'll send you a quick video ahead of time showing you how to cut your fabric. Though not required, we recommend having a rotary cutter & cutting mat to make the process of cutting knits or lace much easier!
Details: 1 session; 2.5 hrs
