Learn to Sew Knickers with Charlotte Newland



In this fun two and a half-hour class you'll learn to make a pair of cute and comfy knickers using stretch knit fabric and fold over elastic. Knickers are an awesome way to bust your stash of knit fabric scraps. You may never buy knickers from a shop again! Plus pick up tips on sewing with knits and using fold over elastic that you can apply to other projects. We use the Acacia underwear pattern by Megan Nielsen in this class.
