I made knickers!

Yes that blog title is correct!

Yes these are my knickers!

It's my birthday soon and yesterday my friend treated me to a knicker making workshop at the fabulous Makery in Bath.

We got to choose our fabrics from a selection and the fabric pieces were then cut for us.  We added lace trims and in just about 3 hours I managed to sew these up.  This is the first time I have made anything to wear and sewing with elastic was definitely a challenge.

I really enjoyed making these and it was lovely to have something to show at the end of the evening.  Unfortunately we don't get the patterns as instead they advised us to cut and trace a comfy pair we already own.  My friend who sews clothes is going to have a go at making a pattern so there may be more of these in my future.
