Hi All!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having a pretty crazy week!

First thing, as always, my week started out with some bras!


This bra in particular, my bra for Bra-A-Week, Week:33 !! My come-back week where I take over as host again 🙂

The exciting thing about this bra, (and all the bras for the month of September) is that I’m focusing on bra theory!! Yay! This bra was all about the impact of vertical wires and the direction of stretch!

Check that out here if you haven’t already 🙂


Now the real behind the scenes for that post was this little puppy wanting to chew on my fingers and play while I tried to get my post out! You can blame him for any delays!

Then after considerable stress, planning, packing, and a little bit of last minute moving help for my friend, I made the drive up to Toronto, to stay over and head out bright and early for the beautiful state of Connecticut and private lessons with a friend/student of mine! SO COOL!!

Landing 🙂

And then we got right down to business! There’s nothing like having someone who enjoys bra talk as much as you and who is super eager to learn. And I have to say that we’ve been hold up in this sewing room for almost 10 hours a day! just working on bra theory, pattern drafting and so much more!

This has a little sneak peak for what you’re going to see in the Bra-A-Week Challenge tomorrow morning 🙂

SO much teaching and learning! So much boob talk! I have to say that we’ve stayed so focused, that I’ve hardly taken pictures or posted on Instagram- it’s been a total bra-making getaway!

Fuelled of  course by only the best selection of energizing snacks! And maybe a glass of wine here and there! 😉

I have truly been having such an amazing week, and I’m almost surprising myself with how much boob-knowledge I have rolling around between my ears! I should write a book!

I’ve also had the pleasure to meet this little cloud 🙂 Who is too quick and impassion for a photo, along with her little brother who managed to scoot out before I clicked the button! they are SO CUTE lol, my Gibby is going to be quite jealous when he smells these puppies on my clothes when I get home!

Well I’m back to work! The topic of the day today is bralettes!
How has your week been? Have you ever been so caught up in something that you’re teaching and just spent a whole week getaway on it? What topics would you like to learn most about in bra-making?
Until tomorrow for the challenge!

    Erin, your teaching week away sounds amazing! A book? Yes, we'd all love a book!!! Can't wait to hear more from your week and read more bra theory. Last week was great!

      Thanks Michelle! I can't believe my week teaching is already over- it was amazing!! And yes I am really thinking of a book- no point in keeping all the info only in my head! Yay for more bra-learning!

    It looks like you had a really interesting weekend, indeed! Bra talk is always the best talk! 😉 And that library in the first photo…. Absolutely amazing! Are all the books fashion related? Please take me there! And the bra-making topics that I would like to learn most about are… all of them! 😛 Maybe I would choose to learn more about developing different styles and cup shapes, modifying the same bra pattern.
    But now I've got a crucial question to ask: what kind of animal is that fuzzy cloud? A dog? A cat? An oversized bunny? A living portion of cotton candy?? I already want one but I don't even know what it is! xD

    • EmeraldErin

      Hi Sofia!! Yes all those books were fashion related! I wish I could go back and have two months to just sit and read them all!

      I'll definitely do one week theory on modifying your cup seams! I got into it a bit with this week's powerbar lesson, but I could do it with maybe the difference between a vertical and a horizontal seam?

      And to the most crucial question- that lovely fully cloud of love, is actually a teeny-tiny dog! Named 'Vee-vee' – I miss her already 🙂
