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 post is all about my Orange Underwire!
If you want to know more about underwire styles & the wires I offer check out – Underwire Styles & Body Types

I think it’s fair to say that this underwire is the most ‘standard’ or ‘average’ underwire that I have in my collection. I actually named this wire after Norma of Orange Lingerie, because she has two beautiful bra patterns (the Marlborough and the Boylston) that both use this wire! At the time that she came out with her patterns, there weren’t many that had a RTW gorgeous style and it was really inspiring to see them- so I named these after her 🙂
You can find the printable PDF wire chart for this wire here: Orange Wire Chart PDF
This post is going to be all about the different styles or shapes of underwires- before I jump in I want to let you in on some exciting updates… I just launched two new underwire styles in my Etsy shop! more about them in this post- so let’s jump right in!!
Also- if you haven’t already read last weeks post on Fitting Underwire, it has some great information before you start into this post!
So first off- what do I mean when I say different ‘Styles’ of underwires?
Different styles of underwires are all the different shapes of underwires. They can be tall and narrow, short and shallow, high on the sides, high at the front, all different!
