DIY Intimates

There is nothing more luxurious than bespoke lingerie, a beautiful handmade set to fit your own measurements. Unfortunately bespoke lingerie is a extravagance few women can afford and this may be the reason why DIY lingerie classes are proving so popular. Sewing classes are a fun and rewarding experience – not only do you get to learn the tricks of the trade but you also leave with an exclusive, one of a kind set. If you love lingerie and swimwear there are plenty of classes worldwide to suit your budget and aspirations – from the 1 day knicker making classes to the 10 week workshops.

Lingerie (especially bras) are incredibly complex garments. There is a high level of skill and craftsmanship that goes into creating luxury lingerie so even if you don’t master working with delicate fabrics or fiddly elastics in a short time – practice and persistence pays off. Taking a class will reinforce your love for your favourite brands and enrich your respect for the professionals who made them. Sewing your own lingerie, or anything else for that matter, is HARD and it really puts cheap intimates into perspective.
