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.
