With just a sewing machine and some inexpensive materials, learn how to make your own truly unique knickers, bras and camisoles. Work your way up from super easy Tie-side pants that can be customised in endless ways, to sewing with silk, tulle and other delicate fabrics. With 25 projects and patterns that can be personalised to suit your shape, size and style, from a Lace Thong and Chiffon Camisole to a Satin Soft-cup Bra and Wedding Garters, explore the vast scope for personal, creative expression in traditionally private items of clothing, whether making them for yourself or as a gift.
