Making Underpants

  • The Stitchery 24 Sandyford Place Glasgow, Scotland, G3 7EF United Kingdom (map)

One Day Workshop // Instructor: Hazel Lethaby of Mischke Lingerie // Projects: Rosy Ladyshorts for Women, or Comox Trunks for Men  // Level: Growing Beginner // Cost: £65

Make some comfortable underpants for yourself, or as a Valentines gift for your loved one. Learn how to sew tricky stretch fabrics on a domestic sewing machine. 

If it ever seems wholly impossible to find pants that fit well, then here's a chance to right this grievous wrong. This course is a step-by-step guide on how to make a comfortable pair of underpants, using your domestic sewing machine.

In the safe hands of our expert, Hazel Lethaby, students will be introduced to the use of stretch fabrics and learn to use them to their maximum potential, creating underpants that fit your curves as they should. Alternatively, you can make your pants for a loved on, just in time for Valentines Day!

And if you're shy, don't worry: We've got a changing room at The Stitchery, where you'll be able to do your fitting in private. 

Pattern Options

We have two patterns available for this course: The Rosy Ladyshorts for Women, or Comox Trunks for Men.

Skill Level

This is a Growing Beginner course, which means you must have a basic understanding of how to use the sewing machine. Anyone who has done one of our Pure Beginner level courses should be fine.
