T-shirt Bra – Foam Cup Class 1 day

Overview

Once you’ve made a basic bra or two, it might be time to learn a more advanced style.  Many women like to wear a bra made with pre-formed foam cups. Some people call them T-shirt bras because they are seamless over the bust. In this one day class, we’ll teach you all the tricks to cover the foam cups with fabric or lace. While foam cups are not available for all cup sizes, those between A and D will find a good fit in foam.

Rental machines are available for $10 if you don’t want to bring your own machine. Just let us know so we can have one set up for you.

Lesson Plan

In the Class

First thing in the morning, we will fit you in our foam cup sample bras, noting any changes to get the best customized fit possible. Then you learn about the fabrics that will make a seamless cup and which will not. Before lunch you will cut the fabric and other components. In the afternoon, you will learn to cover the cups seamlessly  with a few tricks of the trade. Then we will assemble the band and put the rest of the bra together. By the end of the day you will have a new foam bra!
