On November 11, I'm leading a lingerie-making workshop at the Design Exchange in Toronto!
The Design Exchange and Etsy have partnered to offer several Mastercraft workshops. You can learn lingerie making with me, Fabric Dying (I kind of want to do this one), jewelry making, and more!
I'm really excited at the chance to do some in person teaching!
To prepare, my bestest buddy Abbey came up for the day so that I could teach her how to make lingerie!
Abbey has sewing experience, but hasn't sewn much over the last few years, hadn't worked much with knits, and had never sewn lingerie.
|Oliver makes sure she cuts the gusset lining correctly.|
Just by watching my demonstrations, she was able to complete the entire process herself, from cutting the fabric to doing the finishing touches.
|Getting the hang of sewing fold over elastic! She's a natural.|
Lingerie making is one of those things that just takes practice. Abbey did an amazing job, especially since this was her first time working with lingerie fabrics and notions, and felt a little rusty on the sewing machine! Getting the elastic just right and mastering that zig zag stitch takes a few tries, but on the whole, her set went together really well!
|Abbey's first try! Amazing!|
I'm hoping I'll get to see a couple familiar faces at the workshop, and meet some new ones too. If you know anyone in Toronto who would be interested in learning how to make lingerie, please let them know about the workshop! I'll be providing a variety materials and a notions kit so that you can create a truly customized set.
See you on the 11th!
