Remember around this time last year when I released my free Lacey Thong pattern and had that big Lingerie Sewing Week extravaganza?! Well, in the intervening year I’ve of course sewed way more lingerie and released more patterns, but I still love my little ‘Thongs and wear mine all the time, so I thought I’d share the love and have a full-on PANTY PARTY!
It’s in the evening of Thursday 13 February, so you can de-stress after a long day at work by playing with frilly lace…
That’s right – come and sew with me and we’ll make Lacey Thongs til we run out of free tea and biscuits and/or start wearing panties on our heads. I’ll cover all the basics of lace placement, attaching lingerie elastic, that cool “burrito method” of enclosing the crotch seams, and you’ll get to go home with some saucy little panties just in time for Valentine’s Day. Or a Me Party, whatever floats your boat.
The panty party venue is at the Thrifty Stitcher’s studio up in Stoke Newington (a quick walk from Canonbury overground, or there’s plentiful buses), and all materials will be provided, including the aforementioned coffee, tea, and bickies.
It’s suitable for beginners (though you should know the basics of sewing machine operation!), or if you’re already confident with sewing lingerie, you’re welcome to just come to have a fun lingerie sewing night with all the fun laces and fabrics on offer. You’ll leave with your own copy of the pattern and the knowledge to make your own Lacey Thongs at home for very little money.
There is a catch, though – there’s only enough space for five of you in this little soiree, so you must buy your tickets in advance (no point turning up with panties on your head to find out it’s full-up, eh?).
I hope to see you there!
