One of the keys to great bra-making (and the theme for this year!) is A Solid Foundation of skills. This month, we go Back to Basics and challenge you to share with us photos of techniques you have found to make your bra sewing easier, faster or more professional looking. We’ll be sharing tutorials on the basics of intimate apparel sewing. If you’ve made use of an unusual notion, or technique in your bra-making, we want to hear about it! Did you sew on perfect channeling with perfectly even topstitching? We’d love to see it! Lets’ put the FUN into the Fundamentals of Bra-making!
The Challenge guidelines
- The theme must be obvious. In this case, the theme is Back to Basics, so the challenge is to take photos of a basic technique you’ve mastered in your intimate apparel.
- You can use or modify any Pin-up Girls patterns; bras, panties, corsets or swimwear.
- The garment must have been completed in 2019.
I encourage you to enter this challenge. It’s all about challenging yourself to make something dazzling! Submit your entries any time before February 28. If the garment is complex, submit photos of the more important details. Entries will be shown on social media (so if you are shy, don’t model it!) and the winner will be chosen after all entries are in. Remember, the garment does not have to be on a model. You can even show off your entries to all your friends and family on Facebook or Instagram. Please include the hashtag #bramakerschallenge2019 so we can see too! Send us your photos to our email [email protected]. Let us know what country you live in as well! The winner will be chosen after the challenge closes and the photographs of the entries will be published on this blog and in our social media.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get Back to Basics and start sewing this February!
