Have you ever wanted to create your own bamboo underwear?
This wonderful workshop will take you through the process of a basic pair of underwear from start to finish. You’ll begin by choosing your fabrics from a selection of pre-cut fabrics in your chosen size and style. We’ll then show you how to construct your garments using a serger and apply the elastics with a sewing machine. We have a selection buttons and ribbons for you to beautifully finish off your design.
Whether you’ve never touched a serger before or need a refresher after a long break, this workshop can help get you going!
In this workshop you will learn:
- How and when to use a serger
- How to work with lingerie elastics
- How to create a lined guesset with hidden seams
- How to customize your underwear
Skill requirements: Previous sewing experience is essential. You must be able to confidently use a regular sewing machine and have some experience sewing basic garments.
Instructor: Jenny Ambrose
Material requirements: We will provide all materials needed to complete the project.
Equipment requirements: Please note that we provide a sewing machine for you to use in the studio, but you are more than welcome to bring your machine from home. If you’d like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord) and arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.
Group size: We like to keep our workshops cozy and fun, so attendance is limited to 6 guests.
“Working with patterns, stretchy fabrics, and elastics are three things I tend to avoid but Jenny really took all the fear out of it. From cutting the fabric to the voodoo origami move needed to connect the gusset with a hidden seam, Jenny provided clear guidance. The pattern used is simple enough for beginners like me and easy to adapt for those with more experience.” CD
