Bra-A-Week: Week 13 & My Teaching Debut!!


Hi All!!

I have something extra special and exciting this week! Instead of showing you 1 bra I have 22 bras!!

These are all the bras that I’ve made to do fittings for my bra-making classes- because I’m a bra-making instructor! And my first class was this Friday/Saturday!!!

I was so nervous, but it turned out amazing! I had a fantastic class of keeners and they all finished their bras so quick!! IT WAS AMAZING!

Here are all my fitting bras inside my changing screen! For the exclusive fitting experience!

I love my changing screen! It’s so perfect- and I had to doll it all up with my bras and swimsuits from the challenge- just a little eye candy for the students! And you can see their machines set up! So much fun!

 

I went back to my hometown to teach at PineRidge Knit & Sew– where I took my first beginner bra class 6 years ago as a novice 17 year old sewist!!  I can’t believe I’m back as the teacher!!

 (Gibby is getting the exclusive fitting experience ;).. )
I’ve had this in the works for a while and I’m so happy that I’m finally sharing it with you all! I’m so excited to conquer the bra-making world and convert everyone into bra-making fanatics!! 🙂
Talking about bra fanatics! Here is what you lovelies sent me this week!

First we have this beautiful bra-top from Sofia of Silver Lining Atelier!

 

Sofia made this bra top with a beautiful fabric of black stretch lace over a translucent- bronze knit! She made it from a self-drafted pattern inspired from a couple different designs! How chic is this?!

If you aren’t completely obsessed with the front- check out the back- LOVE IT! She calls this her ‘Lillian Bra Top’. Don’t forget to check out Sofia’s post about her make on her blog!

Emily made both of these bras using the Marlborough pattern from Orange Lingerie, and fabrics from Grey’s Fabric. How beautiful are these! Great combinations of colour!

She’s loving the shape that the underwires and the power bar gives- and I can see why- these are beauties! Don’t forget to check out Emily’s post about her bra-make on her blog!

Kerri made this ensemble from a 1968 bra set pattern- with a cute rushed halter top, legging bottoms and sheer overshirt! super super cute- gotta love that fabric too 🙂
