Magical Monthly Undies
- Advanced Beginner
Hey lovely ladies, brighten up that "time of the month" with your own "me-made" pair of period panties. Sewing your own period underwear is very empowering and allows you to pop-in some fun colors & prints! In this class we will be making the Arccos undies and adding on the period kit extension, which includes waterproof backed jersey, ultra-absorbent bamboo, and moisture wicking mesh fabric in the gusset. You will also be learning best practices for sewing elastic.
Note: To save time and space for your fellow sewists, cut your pattern out before class so that you can jump right in to sewing. We will mail your pattern approximately two weeks before class to give you time to cut out. If you want to collect your pattern in person, just let us know in the notes at check out. We encourage you to contact the shop before class if you need help cutting out your fabric.
