Do your panties creep? >>>>> Do you surreptiously look around to see if anyone is looking and if not, give them a yank down into place? But you have to do this multiple times a day ..... sigh.
Does your pantie elastic chafe and dig into your skin? ......... That's painful and unnecessary.
Do you hate shopping for underwear because you can't find anthing comfortable and or appropriate? ........... Frustration and wasted time.
Are your panties boring and drab? Then let's spice up your pantie drawer!!
Answered yes above?
THEN YOU NEED TO ATTEND MY PANTIE PARTY SEWALONG!!!!
I am thrilled to announce that I am hosting a special lingerie sewing event this Fall. There will be THREE 3x hour sessions held over 3 weeks so you will have time to finish sewing each pantie between sessions before starting the next one. The 3 pantie patterns will be different as I want to give you the opportunity of trying out 3 different pantie styles and a bunch of different lingerie sewing techniques on your quest to find your favourite, most comfortable and prettiest/sexiest pantie!
This is a NEW class. I have not offered classes on any of these patterns/styles until now.
The 3 sessions will be held on Zoom where you will be able to watch me showing you how to sew elastics and much more as we make 3 different pairs of panties - one each week of the sewalong.
I will be right there LIVE on Zoom to answer your questions in real time. You can sew confidently with me almost literally at your elbow!
Important: I highly recommend you attend all 3 sessions to gain maximum benefit from the sew-along but I will record the sew-along sessions so you can watch afterwards if you have an emergency that prevents you attending. Or you just want to replay the sew-along as you make more pantie projects - as a reminder.
