Welcome to my brand new Lingerie Workshop! I designed this beautiful bra and pants pattern over the summer with comfort, colour and details in mind. The bra has a beautiful cross back and can either be made in lace or organic cotton, or both layered together. The pants are hip hugging, with three different optional lace overlays and lots of potential for customisation. This workshop is a great introduction to sewing your own lingerie and will give you lots of skills to make a variety of styles. The bra is not underwired so if you need that level support this might not be the workshop for you, however it does give a lovely amount of support up to a D cup. The workshop is open to all, regardless of previous sewing experience. 

When: Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd September 2019 from 10am till 3pm, with one hour lunch each day.
Where: Made My Wardrobe Studio, 49 Poland Street, Soho, London, W1F 7ND
