Let’s sew underwear together! Spend your Friday evening learning how to sew simple, bikini-style underwear and sipping wine with your fellow sewing enthusiasts. Using the free Megan Nielsen Acacia Underwear Pattern or Acacia Curve Underwear Pattern, students will learn how to take their measurements, sew knit fabrics with a sewing machine or serger, and attach elastic to the waist and leg openings.
This workshop is being taught by Jennifer Garvic, blogger and seamstress from A Maker Heart. The Acacia Underwear pattern is PDF only and available at the Megan Nielsen website. Pattern is available for purchase or for free when you subscribe to the newsletter. Acacia Underwear pattern is available in sizes 0-20. Acacia Curve Underwear pattern is available in sizes 14-30.
