This as been a long time in development, one of our most requested courses - BRA MAKING!
Take this course at two levels and course lengths!
- 16 hour course: Students make a toile bra first and learn pattern adjustments before cutting into their fabulous final bra fabric. The first two additional workshops are quite fast paced.
- 8 hour course: Students join in after the first two workshops, choose their size based on measurements and learn to make a beautiful bra.
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.
If you are an intermediate level student, you could still take the longer 16 hour course and focus on making your toile bra and not undertaking the pattern adjustments in the first 2 weeks. Then apply the skills you've learnt and make your fabulous final bra.

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes?
At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc. Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.
Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.
