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
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.
