Pin-up Girls Sweet Sixteen Bralette (from Bra Makers Supply)
Nothing beats the ease and elegance of a bralette, which is not only comfortable and pretty, but easy to sew. In this class we will use the Sweet Sixteen Bralette pattern as our template. Choose from one of several style variations: a longline, all lace, or combination fabric and lace bralette, and between a pull-over bralette or bralette with hook and eye closure.
(We recommend working with lace for more advanced sewists and working with jersey if you're a little newer to sewing.)
At the beginning of this class you will have a chance to try on fit samples to ensure that best result possible.
Students will learn step-by-step how to make the bralette. We will cover everything you need to know to make a professional looking undergarment using ONLY a sewing machine!!! Here's what we'll cover:
Choosing the correct size through a hands-on fitting process
Getting to know the basics of lingerie notions, fabrics, and supplies.
Elastic application and what stitches to use
Sewing adjustable lingerie straps
Attaching a hook and eye closure (if you choose this view).
Construction and finishing techniques to get a professional looking result
*** 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 achieve a perfect fit for future bras. We will take you as far as we can with those alterations inside of this course. ***
