Costume / Underwear Making
A practical session to make yourself some underwear! Bring scissors, pencil, paper, ruler, tape measure and fabric, and we’ll turn them into some pants by the end of the session
We can make underwear to fit any body type – there will be basic patterns for 3 kinds of pants: trunks, knickers and shorts; and we can adapt them to fit anyone.
1st hour: taking measurements, and drawing up a paper pattern. (this part will be a lot of doing sums and drawing straight lines according to a formula on a handout.)
then 1/2 hour on fabrics – how to work with stretchy fabric, and how to adapt the pattern so it works with the fabric you’ve picked.
then 1/2 hour on cutting out
And hopefully the next hour will be sewing them together, putting edging on, and finishing them.
