Join us for a wonderful weekend of lingerie sewing, creativity and fun from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th February 2023. We are going to have SO much fun learning creative lingerie sewing skills! I can't wait to share with you how easy it really is to make your own lingerie. YES! It is when you know how. We will make TWO sets of lingerie: each will have a bra and a pantie and you will learn different techniques and skills from 4 different patterns.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT OF $40 off the total Retreat price IF YOU REGISTER BY 15TH DECEMBER 2022. Discount will be applied automatically to your cart until 15th December.
Please note that there is a limited # of registrations available as I want to keep the retreat small and intimate so that we can chat & share easily with everyone able to see & talk to each other.
If the class fills up, I will take names onto a waiting list and I will run the retreat again for people who don't manage to get registered for the first one. But.....the trick is to register soon and get the discount!
Registration will close early in January so that we don't run into supply chain issues for the kit supplies. So don't snooze or you might lose!
You will sew 4 lingerie items: wireless bra and matching undies (2 patterns) + a Wired bra and matching undies (another 2 patterns). AND all the necessary lingerie supplies as well as a couple of extra surprize goodies.
ALL this for less than the price of some custom & RTW lingerie!! And you will learn skills to make many more beautiful bras and undies in the future.
- Learn about correct measuring for a good fit, the correct fabrics to use, lingerie patterns, laces, the DOGS, elastics and bra styles.
Hints and tips for cutting, sewing, applying elastics, and much more.
Step-by-step instruction: Beginners are very welcome! It does not matter if you have never made a bra or a pair of panties before. I will show you how.
- Pre-recorded videos & Zoom get-togethers throughout the weekend for Q&A, show & tell, door prizes and more.
$299 includes all lingerie supplies including FOUR printed patterns, thread & needles; SHIPPING ( within Canada and the USA) of the kits to you***; all video links and all the weekend retreat activities on Zoom.
PLEASE NOTE: I am currently sourcing the supplies for the kits so the fabrics, colour options and laces will, in all likelihood, not be the same as in these pics. They may be even lovelier! As soon as I have supply options ready, I will post pics. You will be emailed at that stage to make your final kit colour choices so your colour choice at this stage merely gives me some idea of what you may prefer.
Both sets of bras & pantie kits will contain suitable lingerie fabric and lace as well as all the other items like elastics, bra findings, one set of wires (size will be determined later before shipping), needles and thread.
Pantie style choices will be briefs, mid rise or full panties available on both different multi-sized pantie patterns: Smoothie pantie from Lingerie Secrets and No Show Brief from Greenstyle Patterns will be supplied (printed) in your kits.
Bra patterns are the Freya from Bramakers Supply (wired bra) and Sahaara (non- wired) from Rubies Bras. You will get both patterns (printed) in multi-sizing in your kits.
You will trace off the size you require after it has been established what size you should make. You will be provided with a video link about measuring before the Retreat. After I receive your measurements, I will advise you which size to trace off on all 4 patterns......... I'm making it easy for you!!
There are lots of pics (to whet your appetite!) so do be sure to check them all out. Many (but not all of the pics) shown here are lingerie made by me. I am currently finalizing the patterns we will use during the retreat but rest assured that all pics and pattern designers will be fully acknowledged in due course - I do not design patterns so I am very appreciate of the skills of those who do.
In Person retreat? I am also happy to consider running an in person Lingerie Sewing retreat here in Vancouver (Surrey) BC so please email me if that might be an option you would be interested in. This group may have to be smaller and may have to be conducted over several sessions - possibly a week apart? This is not a done deal yet as I would need to find a suitable venue. Costs may be higher to include venue rental. But if someone has a venue they can recommend or would host a group of sewers, let me know and we can discuss......many things are possible when we are passionate about our sewing - right?!
***Please ask for shipping price if you live outside of North America (Continental USA & Canada). I will cover some of the international shipping but may not be able to cover it all depending on your postal address. In this instance there would be an extra charge.
