Sewing with Knits: Undies!

  • Bolt Fabric Boutique 4636 Northeast 42nd Avenue, Ste C Portland, OR, 97218 United States (map)


Take your sewing to the next level by learning to sew your own underwear! In this class you will sew a pair of undies in any style and learn a binding technique or two of your choice! Choose from stretch lace, picot elastic, fold over elastic, plush waistband elastic and self-knit bindings. Making your own underwear is satisfying and fun and great for scrap-busting! This class is open to all genders.

Sewing with Knits is a prerequisite for this class. Students must either take our Sewing with Knits class, or have sewn with knit fabrics before.

  • An underwear pattern (Jalie 3885, Jalie 3886, Jalie 3242, Jalie 2568, and Thread Theory Comox Trunks are some options we carry and there are many more available online!)
