Where: Anywhere, through Zoom.

Cost: $40/student

Recording: This class will be recorded and over 1 hour of videos Lara prepared for the class will also be available in 6 different class units through a password-protected link on YouTube.

We’ll cover techniques for sewing a cute nightie/slip using nylon tricot and cotton-spandex blend knit fabrics with about 25% stretch and mesh fabrics with a lot more stretch. Traditional lingerie-making techniques will include the fastest hem ever using stretch lace trim. A modern notion (fold-over elastic) makes finishing edges a snap! Use either purchased bra straps or strapping elastic, slides, and rings to complete your look.

If you can find the Kwik-Sew Method for Sewing Lingerie book from 1978, it’s a great source for patterns! Just make sure the copy you get comes with the pattern pages intact.

In this class, I’ll show how to use Vogue 8888 to get a very similar result to the 1978 nightie. No matter which pattern you choose, you will need to purchase your own copy of the pattern.

Please check out the class’s information page for a complete list of materials needed to complete your project!
