The great thing about sewing lingerie is that you have the opportunity to correct fit issues that you usually have with RTW bras + panties. Are you usually spilling out of your bra cups? Does your back band ride up? It’s in your sewing power to fix it! The caveat is that you will have…
How to cut lingerie fabrics? It’s all about having the right tool. Tools are just as important as fabric and trims. It’s easy to skimp on tools in order to save a few bucks, especially because no one sees or knows about your supplies when a project is finished. I promise you though that having…
One of the most confusing parts of bra making is choosing the lingerie fabrics. Stretch or non stretch? Those old scraps of lace that my grandmother gave me – can I use them? What about a woven on the bias? Here are some general guidelines that will help you when purchasing. LACE: An obvious fabric…
HOW TO DRAFT AN UNDERWIRE BRA PATTERN
If you want a special experience, with one-on-one instruction and beautiful materials, a bra making workshop with Maddie is for you. The day is also full of unexpected surprises--for my session, a curated cheese board for the class snack, as well as a generous gift bag to take home. The session itself is full of detailed instruction by the master herself. Also met some wonderful people from across the country who came in for the workshop. Time and money well spent. Absolutely dreamy day from beginning to end.
Maddie's class was SO fun, even for a MAJOR beginner. I took one intro sewing class 6 months before Maddie's class so I was definitely nervous. But Maddie was extremely informative and attentive to the needs of all the attendee's sewing levels. It seems that the experienced sewers learning a lot about technique and refined their skills with Maddie's guidance. While less (or no) experienced sewers (like me!) got more hands on help with basics.
I took a bra making workshop with Maddie, and it was so great! It was (obviously) a challenging product to make. -but she walked us through it one step at a time - I finished the workshop with a well fitting usable bra and better understanding and appreciation of what goes into constructing our bras! I couldn't ask for more, but Maddie surprised us with more - the whole day was beautifully created, we had a fantastic lunch, an industry guest stopped by to explain bra fitting, and we left with goodie bags just like a party. Thank you Maddie for the fantastic day! I would do it again, and anyone who has read my review this far...I recommend you go sign up for a workshop and experience the wonderment yourself.
