DESCRIPTION: Make your own knickers! You will learn to sew a pair of jersey knickers using a
sewing machine & overlocker. The pattern will be provided – Tilly and the Buttons ‘Iris’ with a
choice of waistlines and leg openings. Once enrolled we will contact you to ask which size and
style you would like to make on the day and a pattern will be prepared for you. The course will
also cover how to convert them to ‘period knickers’, if desired.
If possible, please bring ‘off cuts’ of stretch fabric (light to medium weight stretch knit fabric
with 4-way stretch & good recovery, e.g. jersey, scuba, stretch mesh, stretch velvet) – pieces
large enough to make a pair of knickers. If you don’t have any, there will be fabric available on
