Exciting news!

The Measure Twice Cut Once webstore is now carrying bra kits and accessories in a wonderful array of fashionable colours!

I’ve been receiving so many emails asking about where to find good hardware, people trying to find suppliers of plush back elastic and the general struggle to find anything suitable. So I thought I’d make it easy for everyone and make them available on the website.

I’m offering both kits and accessories as I know you might just need to source one or 2 pieces and already have the rest in the stash? This way is much more flexible and you can tailor it to your needs.

The sliders and O rings are metal with a beautiful finish and available in either gold or nickel (silver).

Bra strapping are available in different widths and colours. Great for bra straps, headbands, cami top straps and anywhere you need a firm elastic with a controlled amount of stretch.

Picot or plush back elastic is available in 3m lengths perfect for knickers, boxer shorts, bras and even waistbands of skirts and slips.

I hope this makes your bra and knicker making a whole lot easier and don’t be afraid to ask if there is something you need and can’t find. It’s a pretty good chance I can source it for you.

Kits and accessories can be posted worldwide and are sent out using Australia Post.

    Hi Susan, I love what you have put together and I would love to buy a couple of your kits, but your shop says out of stock. Can you please advise when you have a new batch available. I like the aqua and pink kits. Alternatively, is it possible to buy the elastics, wire housing, strap elastic and fasteners in white and I will attempt to dye myself. Please send me an email. Thanks Lene

      Hi Lene,
      I’m hoping to have new kits available by the end of the week and some new extras will be added into the supplies too. Hopefully it will cover everything you need.
