Strapless Bra Class

  • Strapless Bra Bra-makers Supply


Strapless Bra Class

Many women would like to have a strapless bra that is supportive, comfortable, and makes you look and feel great.  In this class you will learn how to make strapless bra custom fit to your body.  It should stay in place without the irritation sliding down while you wear it!  The cup is similar to the Ruby but it is a balconette style.  This is the perfect bra for that wedding or gala event you have coming up!

We want all students to have the best bra-making experience possible, so it is imperative that you know how to sew before you come to any of our classes. If you are comfortable setting in a sleeve without instructions in front of you, you can sew a bra! If you need to brush up on your sewing skills, please consider our Learn to Sew class.

Rental machines are available for $20 if you don’t want to bring your own machine. Just let us know so we can have one set up for you.

$250.00 CAD

Please note:

• Class begins at 9:30 am and ends at 4:00 pm.
• You can bring your lunch or you can buy lunch out. We have a fridge, sink, and microwave in our classroom kitchen. We regret that our washroom facilities are in the basement so we cannot accept students with mobility issues at this time.

Want to learn to make your own strapless bra?   This is one of the best classes you will ever take.

What you get in the class

You will receive the Diamond Strapless Bra pattern with the class fee.  You can purchase all the supplies to make your bra here in the store or you can choose from our mix ‘n match fabric and lace ends for free.

Skill Level


While bra sewing is not difficult it does require a certain amount of skill. Ingrid is a beginner level bra class, but that doesn’t mean beginner sewists. We like to say “if you can sew in a sleeve you can make a bra.”  Be sure you know the basics before you sign up for this class.

I am absolutely thrilled with my experience at Bra-Makers Supply. I took the 2 day Beginner Bra 101 with Beverley and Denise. While Beverley did my fitting and altered my pattern (which resulted in a perfect fit), Denise patiently walked all of us through each step of construction. Her instructions were detailed and offered extra bits of information not found in the pattern booklet. Any anomaly in my bra was due to not following instructions as closely as I had been directed. And now I know how to do better next time. I have a fair amount of experience with sewing and building various types of garments, and am happy to be adding a new skill set to my repertoire. I haven’t been this excited about something for quite some time!! One step closer to being able to build my entire wardrobe! Thanks so much Denise and Beverley.

Was in the November beginner bra class, and made a great bra – finally, a bra that fits! Great class, lots of support for the search for the holy grail, that is a great bra – and lots of inspiration for more creative versions. Can’t wait to do another class…… Highly recommend it for all who aspire to a custom foundation garment – yay Bev and team!

I took a beginner class and made my first classic bra…. It fits like it was designed for me! If u have a chance to take a class I strongly recommend it! Worth every cent…. Can’t wait to make more and fill up my closet! Also signed up for her craftsy classes to refer to at home. Great store too… Incredible selection of lace!
