Ladies' Victorian Underthings workshops with Melanie Unruh
Melanie Unruh will be teaching you how to create essential underthings for your Victorian or Neo-Victorian dress, Saturday and Sunday of the first two weekends in July 2024 - July 6 & 7, and 13 & 14 - this is a 4-day workshop.

Melanie has been creating historical and fantasy clothing for decades, almost every era from Viking to Victorian.

We will be meeting at Lara Beckwith's studio - attendees will be e-mailed the address.  

This workshop is for intermediate and more experienced sewers. If you have basic sewing skills (including if you're a quilt-maker), you'll be fine in this class.

We'll be using Truly Victorian Patterns, TV 102 Chemise and Drawers and TV 108, the Grand Bustle Pattern, and TV170 Victorian Petticoats. Workshop cost includes both patterns and the bustle wire kit for TV 108. Sorry, we cannot refund registrations; they can be transferred to another person though.

The cost for the workshop is $125, which includes patterns and bustle wire; if you already own the patterns and have bustle wire, you can purchase the workshop only at $70. A light Tea will be provided.

- Fabric; premium quality white muslin or Kona cotton, or premium-quality quilting prints
