To keep the momentum going for the Simplicity x Madalynne lingerie patterns, I’m hosting a sew along on Bra Making Forum, a Facebook group Natasha and I started in February 2015 and has surprisingly grown to over 5,000 members. It’s a closed group where you can post what you’ve made, get instant feedback on your projects, read pattern reviews, and receive suggestions for any and all of your bra making needs. It has been an incredible resource for me in my own learning. So, if you love sewing bras, you are welcome, regardless of your skill level. If you want to toot your own horn and share your blog as well, we’re totally cool with that as long as it’s not spammy.
The sew along will be a community effort. From Saturday, October 8 to Sunday, October 16, upload in progress and finished photos of your 8229. Have a question or want to bring up a topic related to the pattern (i.e. sizing)? Please do so! To clarify, I will NOT post step by step instructions; there is a video tutorial for this pattern if you get stuck at any point. Also, I’ll be choosing a winner at random, who will win about 1 yards of the fabric above. Contest is open internationally.
So purchase your patterns, gather your fabrics and trims and get started on your 8229! I’ll also be joining along and making my own variation. It’s gonna bring sexy back yo.
While you’re at it, why not gram it up? You can upload your photos to IG as well with the hashtags #simplicitypatterns and #bramakingwithmadalynne
