Sewing has always been my hobby and my profession. I first trained as a tailor as a young girl after which I worked for some fabulous designers. To fit work around my son I became a teacher of Textiles and Product Design. When my son finished school and moved to the USA I decided to start my own business and do what I love best; draft patterns and teach beginners and advanced sewers how to make their projects look professional. I hope you enjoy my patterns and instruction. Now we followed our boy to the US and I get to sew in the beautiful Californian sunshine!View all patterns by designer (47) »
A great fitting brief is just absolutely the best thing. If it looks good all the better. I designed lingerie when I first started out and forgot all about those days of yonder until I had resort back to my old patterns when I just didn't want to spend a fortune on pretty knickers but still wanted the fit, the look and comfort. So I made about 15 on a rainy afternoon and wondered afterwards why I ever bought any in the first place.
When I told my students in my sewing class that I had made knickers from a stash of old patterns and jersey they wanted to make some too! So I copied the patterns for them and off we went. Now this is a firm favorite as they are quite quick and easy once you get the hang of it. Plus they fit like a dream. So make your own, the pattern is free and comes with a free online lesson too!
The lesson can be found by clicking the link above: blog about this. Alternatively visit my website, frocksandfrolics.com, under sewing projects you will find the 'knickers' too.
