Event description

Description

Curious Studios has teamed up with Alana from Desvalido to bring you our silkiest, cheekiest, frilliest workshop to date - we're talking French Knickers baby!

In this 1.5 hour workshop, Alana will teach you everything you need to know in order to construct the perfect pair of french knickers. She will take you through everything from how to sew curves, to pinning your elastic to your fabric holding the tension, to overlocking your finished, frilly, knickers.

Alana will be bringing in a collection of her handmade french knickers so that you can get loads of inspiration during the workshop.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, cheese and wine will be provided for you on the night. What a win.

When you arrive, your pattern pieces will be pre-cut (you're welcome!) so we will need to know your size and fabric preference (either black synthetic satin or a floral rayon print) if you're purchasing a ticket. Please send them through to hello@curiousstudios.com.au with your name so that everything is ready to rock 'n' roll for you on the day.


We only have a small number of tickets available for this event so don't leave it too late to purchase yours!

WHAT TO BRING

SOME WORDS FROM YOUR WONDERFUL WORKSHOP HOST, ALANA

"I started sewing as a kid, armed with puffy paint & scrap fabric, I would hand stitch bag upon bag upon bag. My mother is a seamstress, proving that anything was possible as she turned my original sketches into real dresses in my teens. 9 years ago in high school textiles, somebody trusted me with a sewing machine (I STILL haven't sewn over my finger... yet. I hear it happens to the best of us) and I haven't looked back since.

I studied fashion for two years at Newcastle TAFE, & a week after I graduated, I started selling my work under Desvalido. It excites me every single day, I hope it excites you too!

So why lingerie?

I started off designing dresses. Gradually, the dresses became shorter & sexier, coincidentally around the same time I started buying lingerie. I found out just how good the right pair of knickers could make me feel & the passion was ignited."
