Sunday 18th August 2024, 10am - 5pm 

32 Bocking Street, London, E8 3FP

The workshop will take place in our studio around the corner from Broadway Market. It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 5 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath Overground stations. It's a dedicated workshop space at the back of our fabric shop, nice and peaceful for sewing but you can still feel a part of the buzz of the shop. The space is fully accessible, at ground level with no steps. We also have a large accessible toilet. 


We love sewing our own underwear! Briefs are a perfect quick and easy project to use up your fabric scraps and to give you the perfect fitting pants. During this class you will learn to make two different styles of briefs and might even have time to make a third pair to practice everything you have learned. We will cover the techniques needed to make your choice of our brief bundle, and brazilian cut briefs. After this class, you will never need to buy pants again!


+ How to take your measurements and pick the right size

+ How to make a brazilian style pair of briefs

+ How to make a thong, hipster or high waisted brief (each of these styles follows the same instructions, so you can pick one style to make in the class, and then you can master the technique for all three)

+ What folder over elastic is and how to use it

+ How to make a gusset and insert this into your briefs 

+ How to create a brief with no visible panty lines

This is a practical class and you will leave with at least two new pairs of briefs!


+ Use of all tools including our PFAFF Ambition 365 sewing machines. If you'd like to learn on your own machine then please do bring it along - please let us know the model in advance and bring your manual with you.
+ All tools and equipment 

+ Fabric and elastic to sew three pairs of briefs!

+ A digital copy of all of The New Craft House brief patterns

+ Drinks and sweet treats to keep you going throughout the class.


+ Nothing - all materials and tools will be provided for this workshop!


This class is suitable for confident beginners and intermediate sewists. You need to know how to use a sewing machine and to sew with jersey, but might be your first time using fold over elastic or sewing underwear. 

All of our brief patterns come in UK sizes 6-34 with a waist measurement range of 61-131cm. If you fall outside of this size range, please do get in touch.
