More Kits and Bra ClassesBy Susan | March 26, 2015
After yesterday’s amzing sell out of grey kits, I’ve got a combination kit today that is grey and lilac lace with black powermesh and straps. It’s going to be so sophisticated and the colours complement each other so well.
The powermesh used in this kit is super strong, I’ve cut the panels across the length of the fabric so you can get more use out of the stretch as it ran up and down not across the fabric. Be sure to check your stretch percentages against your regular pattern before cutting as it may affect how “strong” your bra feels. It’s fantastic quality, I feel like it holds you in all over!
Now for anyone in the Sydney region (or willing to travel to Sydney), exciting news as I’ll soon be running classes and workshops! Come listen to me talk all day and show you how to DIY your own bra pattern from an existing bra. Or take a class on making knickers or a soft cup bra from a pattern I’ve developed.
Classes and Workshops include
DIY your own bra pattern – In this class you will learn how to pull apart your own RTW (ready to wear) bra and construct a pattern to be able to sew your own version
DATE: Sunday 3rd of May, 2015
TIME: 10am to 4pm with breaks for lunch and afternoon tea
Knicker Sewing Class – In this class you will learn how to cut and construct a pair of our Georgiana Knickers. These bias cut woven knickers are a bikini cut and a wonderful way to learn about finishing techniques for lingerie

TIME: 9.30am till Midday
Bralet Sewing Class – In this class you will learn how to cut and construct a soft cup bra (no underwires). Typically known as a bralet or lounging bra these are good for light support and a fabulous way to learn the techniques needed for bra making.

All the details, prices and ways to book yourself into a class can be found in the webstore. They are going to be really fun and are held in the beautiful workrooms of Home Industry in Balmain. Check them out if you want to learn anything at all about upholstery and restoration, not only are they incredibly skilled they are also super lovely!
Can’t wait to see you in the classes and workshops!
