Bra Making Workshop
Bra Making Workshop *Dates going online soon*
Bra Making workshops are designed to teach students about bra fabrics and how to sew a structured bra. We will provide helpful tips on bra fitting, however, we do not have time to custom fit during bra class. Be mindful that whilst most people fit into standard bra 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. This means that bra class is about bra construction, not fit. 90% of students will walk away with a well fitting and comfortable bra. If alterations are needed, we will try and make the adjustments to your pattern prior to you leaving for the day. We do this as a complimentary service to our students.
Bra Making Workshops are all inclusive. (pattern, bra kit, underwires and tuition). Each pattern has a number of sizes included and students keep this pattern after class. Students may select the pattern of their choice from the drop down menu. Please consider your sewing experience when making your selection. It is recommended that you have extensive stretch sewing experience prior to booking bra making workshops.
About the Pattern Selections
Bra Workshops include one of the following patterns. These bra workshops can be attended as many times as the student wishes. Some students like to start with a wire free bra or soft cup bra (the simplest to start with), then often come back for a molded cup workshop and then an advanced bra workshop if desired. We do not recommend selecting an advanced pattern until you have done at least one bra class.
Standard Bra Making Workshops cover:- BOO2 Bra Pattern, BOO3 Bra Pattern, Claudia Bra Pattern, Dart Bra Pattern, Molded Cup Bra Pattern
Advanced Bra Making Workshops cover the intricate or challenging soft cup bra patterns, such as:- Baroque Bra Pattern, Jayne Bra Pattern, Julie Bra & Briefs Pattern (Sizes 10-14 B-C cups only) Bra workshops only teach the bra portion of this pattern (you do receive both bra & briefs pattern to take home), Balconette Bra Pattern
Wire Free bra making workshops cover the Gail bra pattern, Kerri bra pattern, Joy bralette pattern and Lynnette Bra Pattern.
