All Material, notions, pattern 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 to share her expertise and skill with us! Bra Making is a major sewist milestone, and we look forward to reaching it with you!

Pin-Up Girls Ruby Bra Making Class
The fashionable Ruby full band bra pattern can be made with or without underwires. This pattern features an off-set vertical seamed cup for the roundest styling, and a shortened upper cup for maximum lift.   Students will learn step-by-step how to make this underwire bra. We will go over everything you need to know to make a professional looking undergarment, including:

  • Choosing the correct size through a hands-on fitting process. (studio will be closed to the public during class hours)

  • Getting to know the basics of lingerie notions, fabrics, and supplies. 

  • What stitches to use, and when to use them

  • Construction and finishing to get a professional looking result

Class fee includes:

  • 9 Hours of instruction time, plus FREE drop in between classes to work on additional projects.

  • A bra-kit specifically sourced for the class, including: fabric, hardware, and all other materials necessary to complete your bra

  • The use of our class sewing machines and tools 

  •  Opportunity to purchase more supplies and kits to make future bras

  • Tea and conversation as always!

 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!
