Sewing Adventures – teaching and more knickers

By Susan | Comments: 2 | June 23, 2014

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend? Our weather has continued to be stunning so I managed to fit in a run and I got out on the bike too! Am so so glad I’m finally on the mend after being sick.

My weekend started off with a blast on Friday night with a Spoolettes meet up, we got to see the lovely Carmen’s drawing exhibition at Since I left you. They are stunning and I highly recommend getting there for a look. Meeting up with the sewing ladies is always a pleasure and I left feeling inspired to know such a talented group.

Saturday I did some sewing that wasn’t knickers! shock horror I know. I haven’t finished that one yet though so you will have to wait a bit longer to see the finished garment.

Sunday I taught a make your own knicker class at Sew Make Create and after some no shows and last minute cancellations ended up with a one on one class. Was actually pretty fun to teach just one person.


So as to not leave you completely bereft of new sewing here are some knickers I finished up last week.

Two pairs of The Georgiana Knickers

A pair of The Lizzie Knickers with a vintage lace trim

and a 2nd pair of The Lizzie Knickers where I am testing out a new way of attaching the lace. It looks super cute but I’m not happy with the topstitching technique yet so I’ll keep working on that.

and a pair of The Darcy Boxers for a friend recovering from surgery and in much need of some cute shorts to wear. Don’t forget to pick up your FREE boxer short pattern, we’ve been seeing some fantastic versions of it being made up.

    Wow lucky student! Yes my anemone is not made from waterproof fabric, must be different, though looks very similar!
