Everyone loves a cut-and-sew foam bra . They cushion the bustline and provide a nipple-free look under clothes. Using cut-and-sew foam allows you to use virtually any fabric, including stretchy fabrics you can’t use for a regular bra cup.  We have tricks that allow the home sewer to cover her own cups and sew beautiful bras that rival ready-to-wear. You will also learn to cover a cup with lace, and use lining if you want. This year you can choose from over a dozen different foam colours! This is 1,5 day are jam packed with foam, fun and friends! You must already know how to sew a bra – no beginner bra-makers!

1 day: July 3 2015 from 9.30 – 4.30 
In this class, you will learn how to change your basic pattern into every style you want. Vertical seams, diagonal seams, multiple piece cups – 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 must bring your bra pattern to the class.
1.5 days: July 4 from 9.30 – 4.30 and July 5 from 9.30 -12.30
Shelley is a designer original bra with built-in power bars and a split lower cup. You won’t believe what effect these small details have on support! We always say “if you like your Classic Bra – you will love Shelley!” We will draft the pattern in the morning and sew it up during the rest of the class. You must bring yourbra pattern to class.
0.5 day: July 5 from 1.30 – 4.30
The fabric you choose for a bra, panties or body shapers can make or break the garment. Why waste money and time on a garment that won’t support or won’t flatter your figure? Learn what fabrics will make a great bra, or panties, and how to use your fingers to tell you if a fabric will be good to use. You will be given lots of fabric samples that you can take home and use as reference. You will also learn to modify your pattern to use with different fabrics.
