In  Classes

Knicker making classes!

By Susan | Comments: 9 | April 10, 2014

This is so exciting, you can now come and do sewing lessons with me to learn how to make Knickers.

Using The Charlotte Knickers pattern I’ll show you how to cut on the bias, do a concealed seam for the gusset, construct the knickers and then take you through the best way to attach your elastic and topstitch it down. Time permitting we will also be talking trims, fabric choices and variations of the style.


Classes are going to be held at Sew Make Create. There are currently 2 different times to choose from. A post work start at 6.45 pm on the 8th of May. Or you can choose a Saturday afternoon class on the 10th of May.

You need to bring

  • 1 metre of cotton fabric of your choice to make your knickers from. The fabric must be pre washed and ironed before coming to class.
  • Once you’ve signed up for the class you will receive a code that will allow you to download your pattern from the Measure Twice Cut Once website. Download the pattern and assemble it before coming to class.
  • You might like to print the instructions too, that way you can take notes on them during class.

I will provide

  • some cotton jersey for the gusset
  • elastic

It’s going to be so much fun, come along and make your own pretty knickers.

      If you can find a place in Canberra where we can hold a class, I’d be happy to come down and teach one there!

    Just booked and paid for the Saturday class. Did have to forego the spoolettes day out though as I couldn’t do the Thursday class. Excited. Better get read y to show me how to make BIG girl’s pants though.

      How exciting, I can’t wait. I’ll have samples of all the sizes with me. That way you can try them on and we can help determine your size.
