Bra & Lingerie Sewing Course
Bra & Lingerie Sewing Course
This extensive workshop is designed to teach students about lingerie, bustier and bra making.
During the week you spend with us, we will cover each area of lingerie, bra and swim sewing, teaching you the neccessary skills needed to make your own professional lingerie.
You will notice a crossover of pattern styles, this is so you can customise to suit yourself, and the more popular patterns may be listed a few times. If our set up doesnt suit you please email us and we will endeavour to assist you.
If you are running late on a particular project, we are happy to come in early the next day to catch you up, so there is no pressure to stay up to speed with other students in the course. Most projects are deisgned to get you to completion at the end of the day. Knickers days, you should get time to make two pairs, unless you have chosen a complicated pattern.
These Workshops are all inclusive. This includes the patterns, fabrics, hardware, boning (if applicable), underwires (if applicable) and tuition. Each pattern has a number of sizes included and students keep these patterns after each class day. Students may select the pattern of their choice from the drop down menu and if you change your mind, dont worry, just email us prior to the commencement of the course. We can also ammend your choices along the way if you want to. Please consider your sewing experience when making your pattern selections. It is recommended that you have some stretch sewing experience prior to booking this course. If you do not, please start with our lingerie course.
Kindly Note - We will provide helpful tips on bra/bustier fitting, however, we do not have time to custom fit during bra class or teach how to measure for fit. Be mindful that whilst most people fit into standard bust sizes, not all do. On occasion, we may need to adjust the pattern once or even a couple of times to get a good fit after you have made your first bra or bustier. This means that bra class is about construction, not fit. 90% of students will walk away with a well fitting and comfortable bra and 100% will know how to bra make after this course, depending on your pattern choices. If alterations are needed to custom fit more to your requirements, we will try and make the adjustments to your pattern prior to you leaving each day. We do this as a complimentary service to our students.
