Fancy Pants – This is a fancy knicker making workshop for a fun and creative hen party.
The workshop will consist of the following:-

2) Fabrics & pattern: Choices of fabrics will be laces and cotton prints. We then look at the different styles of patterns available for making some super fancy pants.
3) Cutting & laying: Fabrics are laid correctly for stretch or pattern and we cut out the shapes ready for sewing up.
4) Making and Sewing: The fabrics are prepared in such a way that not a lot of stitching is required, simply sewing up a few seams will give the basic shape. The more novice sewers can create something fancy from little sewing, while those with more knowledge have the freedom to add and create something a little more technically skilled.
