Cage Bra and Garter Belt

Overview

Cage Bra Class

Cage bras and harnesses are all the rage right now. Though they look complicated with all the crisscrossing of elastics and multiple sliders and rings, we know how to make it easy. Join us for a 5-hour class to learn how to make your own harness. Choose from two variations, or even add in your own style! It is completely up to you! We will show you other fun ways of creating a harness, like using grommet tape, lace, ribbon, or mesh. As an added bonus, we will show you how to make your own Garter Belt!  Gain the skills in this class to keep creating your own lingerie, for under your garments or over!

To take this class, we suggest you be comfortable with sewing on a machine. You don’t have to be an expert seamstress, but knowing how to do a straight and zigzag stitch is highly encouraged.

$75.00 CAD + HST

Kit cost: $30.00. Includes hardware and strap elastic.

Please note:

• Class begins at 10 am and ends at 3:00 pm. Doors open at 9:30 am.
