Making Women's Undies

Learn to make a pair of cotton knit underwear. Choose one of two patterns and learn how to attach two different types of elastic.

  • sewing machine in good working order, with bobbins and machine accessories (or call us if you'd like to borrow one of ours)
  • ½ yard cotton knit fabric

    Bring one of your favorite pair of comfortably fitting underwear to use as a guide.

    We will be using one of the following free patterns. Look at each pattern and decide which style you would like to make. You will need to download the pattern and tape it together before class. We will decide on the size when class starts. 

    • This is a hipster pattern that has both a regular and curvy fit from Seamwork Patterns.

    • This is a bikini pattern from Paper Theory Patterns.

You will also need the following BASIC SEWING SUPPLIES:

  • sewing scissors

  • tape measure

  • straight pins

  • seam ripper

  • 6" seam gauge

  • washable fabric marker or chalk pencil

  • one package of assorted size Universal sewing machine needles
