Barrie Briefs Workshop - 3 February 2018
Barrie Briefs Workshop - limited to six spaces
3 February 12:00-4:00
The Barrie Boy Cut briefs offer comfort and coverage without sacrificing style. The beauty of the design is a tall yoga waistband and low cut legbands- no irritating elastic digging in and creating lumps under clothes and full coverage without frumpiness. Snug legbands hug under the bum ensuring a wedgie-free zone even when exercising. There are two rise options- low rise for a sporty look great under lower rise trousers and mid rise for increased coverage. Both options have a gusset with a concealed seam for added comfort and protection. One of the best things about the Barrie Boy Cut Briefs (beyond how rad you'll feel wearing your own handmade undies) is how little fabric they require. You can whip up a pair in less than 30cm (12") of fabric! Click here for more information about the Barrie Briefs.
Join us for a fun afternoon whipping up a bunch of funky pants. This workshop will guide you through the process of making pants fit to your individual body type. It will cover:
- measuring and identifying body types
- common fit adjustments that can be made to the paper pattern before sewing
- fabric choices
- sewing knits with regular machines and overlockers
After covering the background, we’re ready to get sewing! We'll practice some knit sewing techniques to gain confidence, and then we'll whip up a bunch of pants.
Included in cost of workshop:
- Enough cotton / lycra jersey for three pairs of pants (value £20)
- Large format print copy (no cutting and taping!) and crib notes
- 15% discount on other fabrics in the shop
- Tea, coffee, and snacks
Suitable for enthusiastic beginners. You’ll need to bring your own machine (although I do have a limited number of machines you can borrow).
