Boob Camp June 2016
You always know when Boob Camp June 2016 is over because you know our Digital Fashion Show is about to start! A glorious line-up of what our students have made over their 5 days with us at Bra-makers Supply, in the heart of the Hamilton fabric district.
Then she had some trouble with the top band stitching…where was I when this happened?
Looking at the inside, you can see that the stitching of the second pass should be at the edge furthest away from the edge of the fabric. But here it is too close to the edge and it is causing the elastic to wave. Don’t do that!
Butterflies and Front Closings
Here’s the Classic Bra converted to a Shelley style, and the full band converted to a partial. We like to convert a bra from the pattern that’s been fitted rather than make the students buy a different pattern. It saves them money and they don’t have to do all the fitting over again. So this student did two amazing conversions – Classic to Shelley and Full Band to Partial Band.
The only problem with a magnetic front closure as the student explained, was it tended to stick to her sewing machine bed, her seam ripper, pins, and any other metal around! Those are powerful magnetic closures!
She had me do a double take when she said she had a pacemaker (magnets and pacemakers are definitely a no-no!!) however then she laughed and said “kidding!” All right for her but she almost gave me a heart attack!
Once again, Denise’s’ special addition of lace at the back strap area uses up those tiny bits you really can’t use anywhere else.
