September 22nd 2-6, September 23rd 10-5
Learn to make your own custom bras with Amy Chapman, patternmaker and designer at Cloth Habit. Amy will walk you through cutting, sewing and fitting the Harriet, a lovely 3-piece underwired bra pattern designed for great support in all shapes and sizes. We’ll start the class with fittings and from there students will learn the basics of cutting and sewing supportive bra materials, tips for handling sheer fabrics and elastic, and professional finishing touches. Students will also learn practical methods of fitting and how to alter patterns to achieve the best support and style. You will leave this class packed with creative ideas for your bra making adventures!
Note: the Harriet pattern includes lined and unlined options. Students will make the unlined version with supportive cup fabrics and a lace upper cup for ease of sewing and fitting.
