[ Bra News ] February


Hi All!

Another month of bra news! How is time passing so fast?? And February has been an amazing month in bra making! So let’s just jump right into it!

First we have some pattern news, the big pattern release this month (that you’ve all been loving and making!) is the Harriet from Cloth Habit. It has beautiful seamlines, and really inclusive sizing! definitely worth checking out

To go along with that, our lingerie star from last month, Rachel of Maker Style, put out a podcast with Amy of Cloth Habit to talk all things bras

Rachel also put out this post on keeping your lingerie elastics organized– which is super helpful for your sewing space.

One of the first makers and lovers of the Harriet was Novita of VeryPurplePerson, who also did a cool comparison between her Merckwaerdigh and Cloth Habit patterns, which is worth checking out if you’re a drafting nerd like me!

Seamwork did an interview this month with a new lingerie designer – turned pattern maker Sophie Hines, who released one of her geometric inspired designs to the sewing world this month!

Exposing the Unders: Pink Gingham Sweetheart


 

Hi All!

 

I’m searching back in my archives again this week to expose the unders on an old favourite- my pink gingham suit from the first year of Bra-A-Week, Week 23. This time I thought I would pick a swimsuit because I feel the start of swimwear fever coming on (I know I have it already!) And the best place to start is definitely with this one, because it’s pretty iconic for me- I still have lots of my profile pictures out there with this suit!

A lot of my swimwear is very bra-like, especially this one, it’s really no different from going through like the other bras so let’s jump right into the unders of this suit!

A Little Mom & Me Sewing


Hi All!

It was time for a little selfish sewing this month. Something that wasn’t underwear, something that would add to my non-lingerie wardrobe. But instead of pure selfish sewing, I decided it would be better if mom and I did a swap and sewed something for each other.

We were both in need of a long-sleeve top. Mom wanted something with a casual, polished style for her upcoming vacation to Cali, and I was looking for something that was comfy studio wear, with a little bit of an edgy girl-grunge look that I’ve been feeling lately. And we both love a good raglan- so naturally the Bethioua and the Lane Raglan were perfect options.

You can hear podcasts with some really awesome bra makers out there including: Sarah of Ohhh Lulu on where she finds bra inspiration,  Hannah of Evie La Luve answering her bra making FAQ and Karu of Studio Costura talking about getting into business and finding supplies.

 

There even might be a podcast coming out later today.. with someone you know 😉
