Wow, there are 30 ladies now who wanting to join the sew along. For Jos, who asked what I would like to do in the sew along: a sew along is not a class, but a couple of ladies (usually) working on the same pattern or type of patterns. Joining the sew along does not mean that we all make the same, but that we all are sewing lingerie, and share the process, difficulties that we encounter in construction or fit (or possibly translation of instructions), and very important to me: help each other by sharing our knowledge. To set it up in a private blog gives everyone the opportunity to write posts and add picturres in that blog and give access only to the participants.
In this particular sew along I'll be the "administrator" of the blog and will try to help participants where I can, that's one of the reasons that I think a limited number of participants is good. Some of the participants will be fairly new to this type of sewing, others with more experience, will be able to help with fitting or technical questions and join more for fun but will learn from others too. I probably will add a few tutorials to the blog and write instructions to make a pattern for a panty to your own measurements and show different options using lace.
And where you are in the world is not important (Kelley wondered about that), that's the great fun of it, that we can share this with people all over the world as long as you have internet access, pattern and fabric and notions.
Let me say that I certainly don't know everything there is to know about lingerie making, which gave me a great excuse to finally buy the book "The bra makers manual" by Beverly Johnson. I ordered it today, it's been on my wishlist for a very, very long time.
