Advanced Beginner – you know how to sew but you may never have sewn with knits or stretch fabrics before

Lesson Plan

Meet Beverly Johnson, the “Fairy Bra-Mother,” who begins class with a quick overview of panty styles. You’ll also learn how to take measurements for the perfect fit and evaluate the “stretch factor” of prospective undergarments.

In Lesson 2, things get drafty! With measurements and stretch factors in hand, draft a master pattern for a brief-style panty.

Start putting those panties together! As you construct your briefs, you’ll learn to sew an enclosed gusset, a mark of high-quality ready-to-wear panties. Later in the lesson, you’ll check your fit, measure the leg elastic and sew the elastic into your work.

You’re almost there! Sew the waistband elastic to complete your first panty, before Beverly runs through some troubleshooting techniques for fit adjustments.

Want a different look? Simple pattern alterations can turn your briefs into a bikini, hipster or French-cut panty! As Beverly shows you the steps for each, you’ll also get introduced to some of the shape-defining details that lead to a flattering look.

Give those panties some pizzaz! Beverly shows you how to add feminine, comfortable lace edgings, appliqués, panels and godets, and ends class with the fun ruching technique.
