Knickers Sewing Workshop
Briefs Making Workshop
Students will receive 2 patterns of their choice. As students work at their own pace, they may not complete both pairs in class, but will leave with the knowlege of finishing their briefs. Class fees include patterns, tuition, briefs kits for two pairs.
Knickers Sewing Workshops
Come along and learn how to make your own knickers selecting from our lovely BT patterns. You will have a choice of two and we hope to get most people finished by the end of the day. However, we do let everyone work at their own speed, so some finsh early and others may not get through both pairs of briefs. Each pattern has many sizes and you take them home after class so you can keep creating beautiful knickers at home. For more information and images on each style visit our pattern section and view the patterns individually.
We like to run our workshops in a casual and easy going environment. Our teachers guide each student one by one, so no-one feels the need to keep pace with the students around them and more experienced sewers are not kept waiting for others to catch up. It works really well and is heaps of fun!
Briefs Classes are all inclusive - so there are no extra fees on the day unless you decide to have a shop!
What you will recieve:-
2 Patterns of your choice
Vilene to trace your patterns
Your choice of Brief kits on the day
For Advanced Briefs Making such as the tie side briefs, twin string, triangle insert lace leg string, open lace back panties, Low Leg Lace Panties you may not complete a second pair throughout the day. You will still be able to take your second pattern home if you are unable to finish both pairs.
Please note there is a flight of stairs to get to the classrooms.
