Event Details

You knew we were going to do this eventually! In this 2.5 hour evening class we will cut and sew a pair (or more) of Megan Nielsen Acacia Undies and learn the technique of applying picot lingerie elastic. This pattern has a size range from size 0- with a 24” waist/34” hip to a size 30- with 48” waist/58”hip. Contact us if you are outside of this size range so we can accommodate you!

**All students must wear a mask when attending classes at the studio**

Prerequisite: Our Intro to Sewing Workshop (or equivalent private lesson) or the ability to confidently thread and work a sewing machine. This is an Adult Confident Beginner class, as sewing on elastic is best done without pinning excessively and is a fun challenge!

Skills Covered: Choosing your size based on a size chart, what “stretch percentage” means in knit fabrics, cutting with a rotary cutter, using a regular sewing machine to sew knits, applying picot elastic.

Materials Needed:

  • All sizes require  1/2 yard of knit fabric with at least 20% stretch (5/8 yard if size 24 or up and using 45” wide fabric). We recommend cotton/spandex knits, as they are breathable and have good recovery. Shop our Knits.
    • You are welcome to bring big knit fabric scraps to use as well! We will be making at least one pair during class time, if you finish early you may begin a second pair.
  • 1/4”, 3/8” or 1/2” Picot Elastic is the preferred elastic to buy, it’s easier to apply than fold over elastic. A great resource for lingerie trims is Madalynne Intimates or Tailor Made Shop. You may also use regular 1/4” or 3/8” elastic as well (which we have in stock at the shop) Sizes 0-18 need 2 1/2 yards per pair, sizes 20-30 need 3 1/2 yards per pair.
  • 1 spool of matching all purpose polyester thread.

Materials provided:  Acacia Sewing Pattern, Sewing machines and all tools necessary.
