How to Sew A Nursing Bralette (Virtual + Live)

$50.00

In this virtual live class, learn how to make a nursing bralette, which is a bralette that unclips or pulls open to make it easy for mamas to bring their feeding baby to the breast. Students will learn about different styles of nursing bralettes, how fiber content can make a nursing bra incredibly resilient and less likely to stretch out, how stretch fabrics allow for changes in breast size throughout the day, how to add removable or permanent foam padding to prevent leakage, slings and more. In the final session, students will sew either the Maris bralette or the Barrett bralette from start to finish!
