This as been a long time in development, one of our most requested courses - BRA MAKING!
In the 16 hour course students make a toile bra first and learn pattern adjustments before cutting into their fabulous final bra fabric.
Learn to make a bra with multiple cup pattern pieces (this means more support), with wires, with hooks and eyes, with adjustable straps and full (wider) band.
Bra making is really enjoyable... perhaps even addictive. It might be the appeal of learning to use all the hardware, getting your technique better and of course it is hugely impressive to tell friends "I've been making these beautiful bras". Browsing online for the laces, fabrics and hardware will lead to hours of planning pretty, functional bras. Learning the intricacies of bra making with a teacher will make you feel exceptionally accomplished. This course is best for students who have been making garments from patterns, are familiar handling fabrics and are able to sew at seam allowance with confidence.
