It’s been a minute – a long minute – since I last posted on my blog- where does the time go?? But since I was last here I did post a vlog on my YouTube channel, all about the best Fabrics for Bra Making!
And I’m back with the vlogs again this week! And this time I’ve done the Seamstress Tag!!
In case you haven’t heard of this- the Seamstress Tag is a video tag (a video with questions that you answer, then you tag other people to answer those questions). It was started by the sewing vlogger Holly Dolly, and here are the questions:
- Who are you?
- When and why did you start sewing?
- What is your favourite / proudest make?
- What is your most disastrous make?
- What is your favourite place to go fabric shopping?
- What is your most used pattern?
- What is your most dreaded sewing task?
- What is your favourite sewing task?
- What is your favourite sewing entertainment?
- Printed or PDF patterns?
- What sewing machine do you use?
- Do you have any other hobbies?
And now for the tagging part! I tag all of you reading this to answer these questions!
So if you are into vlogging I’d love to hear your answers, or if you’re more in the blogging world, I’d love to read them too! make sure you send me a link when you post!!
August has been a lovely month. I think it’s one of the slower months in the bra making world as everyone soaks up the best weather of the summer and finally takes that weekend off to go somewhere and do something fun.
For me it was a busy month settling into my new studio. It is SO nice to finally feel moved in and start actually working in the new space- to get pattern drafting, sewing, to do a photoshoot – and now video! And I am always being happily surprised by how much I love my new spot and how much it suits me : )
This Sunday it’s all about swimwear- and all of the essential supplies for making a top quality suit- because I know when you’re first getting into making your own swimwear- it can be a little confusing to know what supplies you should get!
I made a video all about this over on my YouTube channel, if you want to see all the supplies in action 🙂
This was also a highly requested tutorial- like last week’s tutorial on changing your pattern for different sizes of underwires. If you’ve read my posts on Underwire Fitting and my Guide to Different Underwire Styles. Then you might have found that you need an underwire that is a different style than the one that you use in your favourite pattern. So what do you do about it? – Modify the pattern of course.
To start off- I want to say, just like with any bra pattern modification, there are definitely limits to this- and depending on how large of a change you’re trying to make with you pattern, there will definitely be some test bras and fittings required. There’s only so much you can do with a bra pattern if you’re planning to make serious modifications.
Today’s post has been HIGHLY requested after the past posts in underwire month, especially after my Underwire Fitting Post where I explained the ins and outs of wire sizing and how to find the right wire for you!
So now you’ve found the underwire that fits your size…. but maybe it doesn’t fit your bra pattern size- bummer.
Let me start off by saying that this is SO common- it’s almost the norm – it would be crazy to think that every person with the same cup volume would have the same wire size- so what do you do about it?
