Students will produce 3 bras — underwire, wireless, shapewear — and 3 panties.

Learn about different types of bras, fabric & notions, fit, style lines and construction methods. Learn to draft and sew your own custom sized bra.  Learn how to properly draft and sew a custom panty to flatter any body size and shape. Sew several types of panties with tricot, lace and stretch. End with your own personal design, pattern & panty.

Prerequisites:  Lingerie. NOTE:  This is an advanced class. You must be a confident sewist(s), and comfortable sewing an underwire bra and panties; this often would be your homework.  It helps if you have pattern drafting skills so you can follow instructions during class.
