Bodyshaper Slimmer Class (1 day)

Overview

Bodyshaper Slimmer Class (1 day)

The latest news in intimate apparel, is the rise of the bodyshaper. These are garments that create a smooth and sleek contour under your clothes. Learn the techniques to make this wonderful garment, at the Bodyshaper-making Class.

We have taken the best of all the ready-to-wear bodyshapers and combined them into an undergarment you can wear with the bras you already own. No more back fat, no more bulges and as a bonus, it gives great cleavage. You will have the option of adding power bars to the shaper for tummy control or compression in specific areas, such as across the back for better posture or relief of shoulder and back pain. Pattern is included. No previous bra sewing is required.

If you have already sewn a bra and want to insert the cups into a bodyshaper, we can teach you how to do that, too. Just bring your own well-fitting bra pattern to the Bodyshaper-making class.

Rental machines are available for $20 if you don’t want to bring your own machine. Just let us know so we can have one set up for you.

$150.00 CAD

Lesson Plan

In the morning of the bodyshaper class, you are going to get measured to see what size you will take in our pattern, the Ova-Bra Slimmer. That pattern is the base for all we will make today. We have samples of the bodyshapers that you can try on. You will have choice of a hip length shaper or a full body version. You will also choose the style of the back you would like to have. Then pick the front – do you want lace or fabric in the front…or do you want bra cups? If you want bra cups, you should bring your bra pattern with you so you have the right fit. Then you can cut our your support fabric!

The afternoon session is for sewing, and you will see that a bodyshaper is not long shaping up. You will learn how to finish the armhole edges, the neckline and how to insider the camisole section like a pro. If you are making the full bra version, your bra-making skills will be put to the test as you insert the cups into the bodyshaper frame. Then if you are making the full-length version, we’ll show you how to sew elastic to the legs and attach the adjusters fro the front gusset area. Finished! And now you can try it on and admire your new supportive shaper!
