Fed up with badly fitting, uncomfortable or boring bras? Then join us on this Bra Making Weekender where you’ll learn the techniques and skills to sew your own perfectly fitting bra. On the Saturday we’ll introduce you to the fabrics, findings (all the trims and notions!) and techniques involved in making a bra. Then you’ll measure, cut out and start sewing your own sample bra*. With time to complete sewing your bra on the Sunday, you’ll then try it on for fit. You will be taught how to make any necessary adjustments to fit and transfer these alterations to the pattern so you go home with your personalised bra pattern and the key skills, experience and inspiration to replicate in colours to match every outfit! On this course you will make a full band bra which can be worn with or without underwire. The pattern, fabrics and findings will all be supplied. This is for experienced sewers and those improvers who are up for a challenge! You must be confident in using a sewing machine, cutting out fabric, basic sewing principles and able to follow a pattern.
*Because of the nature of bras, it is important to complete a sample bra in the correct fabric and findings to properly assess for fit. As such, this first bra may not fit as well as you would like, but you will go home with a pattern for a bra amended to your own personal shape.
