Would you like to learn how to sew your own lingerie bodysuit? In this 12 hour course you get the chance to design and sew your own unique piece.
In this course you will learn the following:
> How to alter a basic bodysuit pattern to your own measurements.
> How to sketch your design and and plan your bodysuit (construction, materials,, finishings, etc.)
> How to sew your own bodysuit (construction, working with lingerie materials, finishings).
This level of this course ranges from confident beginner to advanced. There are a lot of design options, and we will take your skill level into consideration. However, you must have some experience working with stretchy fabrics in order to participate.
What to bring to this class?
> Bring some inspiration photos of bodysuits that you like.
Option: choose to have the materials included or bring your own.
There are two options for materials. You can purchase the class including materials or excluding materials. When you use the materials that are included, you can choose from a variety of black and white materials. If you choose to purchase the class without materials, you will need to purchase your materials between the first and second class. Based on your design we will make a list of the materials you will need for the second class. We would not recommend purchasing your materials before the first class, as your design might require very specific finishes.
