QTY:

Don’t let your underwear let you down – simply sew your own knickers! Bring your knicker drawer to life with these fantastic briefs, the ideal project to perfect your sewing and overlocking skills.

Using fabric of your own choice (see 'Additional Information'), use a card pattern to cut fabric on the bias. To get a truly professional finish master how to use an overlocker to get those perfectly finished edges and then finish your knickers by learning the tricky skill of sewing on an elasticated trim.

As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops.

Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, Ministry of Craft customers get 10% discount on the wide range of fabrics, haberdashery and sewing patterns and there are various discounts available on their sewing machines and overlockers.

If the above date is not suitable or sold out and there are no alternative dates showing below, contact us with the workshop name, so we can let you know if a place becomes available or when the next date goes on sale.

If you order fabric from our online fabric shop, it will be waiting for you in the classroom on the day of the workshop or you can buy on the day from Bamber Sewing Machines range of fabrics and get 10% discount.

You will need 50cm of fabric (or a fat quarter), please avoid bulky, stretchy or slippery fabrics; light to medium weight woven cotton is ideal.

2m of elasticated trim (Bamber Sewing Machines stock a suitable one in white).

Matching sewing thread.

Contact us before the course if your size outside the range 8-18 so we can ensure there is a pattern block made in your size.

This workshop is part of a Sew Social day, there may be a short wait if the tutor needs to demonstrate a technique required for a different garment. It is, however, a great opportunity to pick up additional skills and chat about what others are doing.

Our sponsors, Janome, supply computerised sewing machines (230DC) and where required overlockers (6234XL). Unfortunately, it is not possible to bring in your own machines.

Tea and coffee will be available at the workshop and you are welcome to bring along your own refreshments.
