[ Bra News ] February

Feb 26, 2017 | BRA NEWS | 6 comments

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!

The amazing Ying of TailorMadeShop wrote a post on the 10 Reasons to Start Bra Making Today (I couldn’t agree more!), and she also made a great post on the Bra Making Tools Checklist, that goes over the necessities of bra making if you’re a beginner or a full blown addict like me 😉

If you’re looking to add a little something extra to your bra, Sofía of Silver Lining Atelier wrote a post on Adding Echo Stitching to your Bra for a bit of vintage glamour!

Evie La Luve has been a busy bee on her Youtube channel this month with videos for hacking her Esme Panties, Bella Lace Panties, and a fun Sew & Tell video.

This month I wrote a post on Making a Detachable Bra Harness for Valentine’s Day, in case you wanted to add some sexy to your favourite bra 😉 And then later in the week I went to the soft side and exposed the unders on a favourite swimsuit of mine- the Pink Gingham Sweetheart!

Now this month you’ve completely inspired me with so many makes! I love seeing all of your designs and styles- it’s so incredible!  Feast your eyes!








I’m so impressed with all of these- you guys are incredible!!

If you want to share your makes next month, or any bra news, tutorials or things you would like to be included- please send your pics, descriptions & links to:  bra.a.week@gmail.com

Hope you’ve had a fantastic February!
