The first session of the underwear class was last night. Oh, what fun! I have been waiting and waiting for this class. (maybe for my whole life) A few years ago, I really fancied becoming an underwear designer. I’ve never made a pair, but it was one of those things I thought I would love doing. For next weeks class I’m going to have to dig out my binder of underwear inspiration. Yes, the obsession last long enough for me to accumulate lots of ‘research’ into the field.
The class is taught by the lovely Kristiann and we had a riot talking about all the different styles, trims, elastics and problems related to underwear. (ie… camel toe!) This pair here is the Brazilian style using stretch lace. This violet stretch lace was giving to me a long time ago when I was first thinking I would be the next Princesse Tam Tam. Naturally, I had to use it to make my first creation. I also diverted from the basic pattern and added in some jersey knit panels.
Next week we’re making two more styles bikini and hipster. My mind is racing with ideas! I’m afraid you’re going to be subjected to a lot of underwear-related postings. I am a changed & empowered woman, with plans on seriously improving the state of my underwear drawer.

Very sexy but in a feminine way – I am impressed!
wow, that looks amazing!
It makes me wonder how many pillow covers I will need to make before I am level up enough to make underwear. O_o
Those are terrific! I love them…you should be proud of yourself. Think of a) the money you’ll save and b) have something that fits you perfectly! Wow!
See, this is the kind of underwear I wouldn’t like for myself, because of the seam down the front. I’ve had a few pairs like this and just can’t get comfortable. I guess that’s why underwear come in so many styles, there’s something for everyone!
I’m looking forward to this class, as I really want to learn how to sew knits and stretchy fabrics – and make some bikini bottoms!
Ooh! Beautiful! Any chance you’ll be doing (simple) bras or camisoles as well?
hipster all the way.
i am with angelune when it comes to centre seams. my body wholeheartedly rejects them.
this is very exciting and empowering, indeed.
I love them. I don’t mind centre seams. I need to take this class!
Those are so cute, I love the color!
OOOOOH I am taking this class tomorrow!!! So excited!!!!
So sexy and sweet … love it !
I love the idea of this…go sexy!!
[…] first pair was the Brazilian hipster in stretch lace. These next two are made from organic knit bamboo fabric. The fabric is amazingly […]
