Bralette-Making Class (1 day)

Overview

Bralette-Making Class (1 day)

Nothing beats the ease and elegance of a bralette, which is not only comfortable and pretty, but easy to sew. In this class you will use our Sweet Sixteen Bralette Pattern as the template to create your custom bralette. Choose from one of several style variations: a longline, all lace, or combination fabric and lace bralette, and between a pull-over bralette or bralette with hook and eye closure. At the beginning of this class, our instructors will custom fit you to our Bralette Pattern to ensure that best fit possible. During the class you will learn construction techniques such as elastic application, sewing adjustable lingerie straps, and attaching a hook and eye closure (if you choose this view). The Sweet Sixteen Bralette Pattern and all materials – fabric and findings – are included in the cost of the class.

Rental machines are available for $10 if you would like to rent a machine. Please let us know in advance so that we can have one ready for you.

$150.00 CAD + HST

Included in the Class

Included in the class is the Sweet Sixteen Bralette Pattern, and all the materials – fabric and findings – that you will need to sew your bralette.

Skill Level

While this class is geared toward beginner sewists who would like to dip their toe into the world of lingerie-making, a bralette is still a rewarding project for the more advanced sewist.

You must have at least basic sewing skills in order to take this class.

Lesson Plan

Morning

In the morning, you will be fitted to our Sweet Sixteen Bralette Pattern, and choose between a longline or regular length version. Once you have traced out your pattern comes the fun part – fabric shopping! You will head over to our store to select your fabric and findings – choose from lace, fabric, or a combination of lace and fabric. All materials are included in the cost of your class. You will then cut out your fabrics and sew your bralette, learning tips and techniques from your instructor.

Afternoon

After lunch, you will construct your bralette, starting with the cups, then the frame. Once you have inserted the cups into the frame, your bralette will begin to take shape before your very eyes! You will learn the technique of applying fold-over elastic to create a neat and clean finish along the neckline and band. Your final tasks will be to sew your lingerie straps and hook and eye, and your lovely new bralette will be complete.
