More Kits and Bra Classes

By Susan | March 26, 2015

greylilac_header 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.

Grey and Lilac Bra Kit - 2

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.
