Lingerie might be the ultimate sewing challenge and it can seem challenging to make a bra on your own. The good news: It’s not!
Sewing lingerie is rewarding, exciting and A LOT easier than you might think! Being able to make your own underwear and bra is a great way to personalize your wardrobe, and a great way to get creative and experiment with fabrics, prints, and textures.
In this 5 session course, you will create a 10-piece lingerie collection made to your measurements and that you can personalize to your taste and liking.
You will learn how to draft and alter basic lingerie blocks and how to alter them to different styles of panties and bras. You will also learn what fabrics to choose, how to sew your lingerie garments and get step-by-step instructions on how to install underwires, boning, elastics, and all those other small but important details.
This course will give you the tools to become your own lingerie expert and you will excel both as a sewer AND pattern drafter!
