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.
