The bra-making design workshop is 2 days of designing and drafting a variety of bra styles, based on your customised basic bra pattern. Ideally, this will be the Classic Bra from Pin-Up Girls.
Learn how to transform your Classic into a 4-piece cup with a powerbar (like the Shelley). Fancy a partial band style? You'll learn how to do that too! Other topics covered include adaptations for a super-comfortable and flattering back band extension, the Gothic arch and an ultra-thin bottom band.
As well as flat-pattern making you will also be shown how to design in 3-D, using foam sups made from your basic pattern. Create your own multi-seam patterns, like the Ruby.
Time permitting, you can sew up your chosen new style to check the fit and the look.
Please note: You MUST be familiar with basic bra construction techniques and bring along your own fitted bra pattern.
If you have never made a bra before check out our Beginners Bra Making course.
