Description

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. 

COURSE PLAN

  1. Making a toile bra
  2. Fitting the toile and adjusting your pattern
  3. Making your final bra


You will cover:

  • How to take measurements for bra-making
  • Size selection
  • Tracing the pattern 
  • Cutting technique for lingerie fabrics
  • Identifying bra hardware and notions
  • Machine settings, needle selection and sewing technique
  • Bra anatomy and constructing a bra cup with multiple pattern pieces
  • Using lace and decorative fabrics in lingerie
  • Simplex, duoplex, power mesh and bra fabrics
  • Using underwire channeling and inserting underwires
  • Creating adjustable bra straps
  • How to adjust the pattern for a great fit


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.

11 November 2019 • Bra Making Course ✄✄✄

I have made a few bras before but have always struggled with getting a good fit, so this course with a toile to test fit and focus on pattern adjusts was perfect! The pattern used in class wasn't my normal style and we had a unique method for taking measurements to find your size, I was very dubious as to my recommendation size but trusted in the process and after some easy band adjustments had a well fitting, wearable bra! The second bra still required some minor tweaking but is very wearable and I'm close to having a perfectly fitting bra pattern! Thanks Jen and Thread Den!
