This class will be spent working with all types of power bars, slings and collars (shown here is a collar). We’ll learn what they do and what makes them work, how to design them and incorporate them into your bras. Do you or someone in your family have a mastectomy? Learn to design and insert a mastectomy bra pocket and how to make them to fit your bra pattern. By the end of the class, you will be designing, sewing and using these indispensable support tools with ease. We will be making a sample of each of the techniques taught but no one bra will be completed in class. Bring your bra pattern to class.
In this class, you will learn how to change your basic pattern into every style you want. Vertical seams, diagonal seams, multiple piece cups, long-line – what style lines do YOU want in your bra? After completion of the class, you should be able to look at a ready-to-wear bra and know exactly how to duplicate the style. In the morning you will learn to change the style, then in the afternoon, you will check the fit of the cup you designed in the morning. You mustbring your bra pattern to the class.
