This book contains all the instructions that you need to understand and apply a hand grade on your bras and briefs you design. It takes you through step-by-step of each pattern piece, where to put the grade and how to move it, to grade.

By the end of this book, you will have the information on how much a bra and brief grades by, you’ll know where to put the grade and be shown how to grade. There are different examples of briefs, softs bras and an underwired bra.

There is also an exercise on you to grade a bra so you get to understand and apply the teachings rather than just reading about them.

This book took the longest to write due to that I’ve broken down every grade into bitesize steps to ensure you won’t get lost along the way.


The technical book measures 21cm x 30cm

Approx 60 pages

Covers examples of grading done on computer and hand grading. Diagrams with every step.

Part of a three part series that use the same example of briefs and bras so you can follow the technical process through each piece from start to finish.

“The grading book has been my secret weapon in starting my business. The fact that I have been able to grade my own patterns has saved me hundreds of dollars. Not to mention it was incredibly easy to follow the instructions. I bought the physical book and have gone back to it so many times that pages are falling apart – a sign of a truly useful book.” –M.T

“Your books are absolutely brilliant. Loved the ‘How to grade a bra and brief’ as it finally made grading clear to me.” –H.V
