Harriet Bra Intensive
July 30-Aug 1, 5-8:30PM
All Materials and notions provided!
Have you ever spent $200 on a well-fitting bra? Or worse- $200 on a bra that DOESN’T quite fit? I have, and that’s why I am SO SO excited to bring in Tara of Five of Hearts Studio back to share her expertise and skill with us! Bra Making is a major sewist milestone, and we look forward to reaching it with you!
You will need to purchase your bra pattern here. Please have it printed in your size.
About the pattern:
Get ready for some oomph! Refinement meets support in the Harriet, an underwired bra designed to become a true foundation in your wardrobe--and your bra sewing adventures! The Harriet's classic style features a lovely balconette neckline, supportive scoop-back straps, and a 3-piece cup seam design that lifts and centers.
Cloth Habit designed this bra to dance that delicate line between sensual shape and practical support details, and it has quickly become a favourite in the sewing world for playing with lace! She wanted to create a versatile style for wide range of sizes; the cups were drafted and graded in 3 different groups to accommodate needs on both ends of the size spectrum.
About the Class:

Please note: This is a bra sewing class. It will provide a good starting point for you to make bras for yourself, but please note that as with any sewing pattern, you may need additional alterations to the basic pattern to achieve a perfect fit. Prior sewing experience is required to take this class although lingerie making experience is not necessary. You must be have basic knowledge of sewing using a machine - ( threading and operating skills). When registering, please enter your bra size in “how did you hear about the spool”, so that we have a sense of the sizes we will be working with.
Tara of Five of Hearts Studio is an outgoing and charismatic teacher, and a skilled and experienced lingerie maker who has tested patterns for a range of indie designers, and produces lingerie and bathing suits out of her studio in a small town in SK. We are SO fortunate to be able to bring her to the island!
