Intro to Bra Making

Bra Making Pink
That’s right, make your own BRA!!  Make all of your lingerie dreams come true and sew a brassiere custom fit to your body.

In this class you will construct one bra with optional underwire and no padding. You’ll take home your custom bra pattern for all future bra-making!

Class is 6 weeks long, each class is 2 hours.
Class fee is $220 + HST

All materials as well as the bra pattern are available for sale at the studio at a cost of $48 + HST

Students will have a first fitting, create 1 bra and have a second fitting for any final pattern adjustments. Students will be able to use this pattern after the class to create bras with lace and foam on their own.

Students will have a first fitting, create 1 bra and have a second fitting for any final pattern adjustments. Students will be able to use this pattern after the class to create bras with lace and foam on their own.

Learn how to alter patterns to your personal shape and preference, then the bra-making begins! Work with silky duoplex fabric, learn how to sew stretchy picot trim, make adjustable straps, and learn how to insert underwires! There will be fittings so please wear clothing that is easy to change in and out of. We start with an assessment and select the pattern which fits best.

*** Please note that the initial fit consultation will be more successful if students are topless. This is important for accuracy as we base your bra pattern on the measurements we take here. Students must be 18 years old or accompanied by a parent

Patterns come in over 90 sizes (30 AAA – 48 H).  We strongly suggest that students use the materials recommended by their instructor (all of which is available at the studio), as other fabrics will fit differently and make pattern development more difficult.  Extra classes may be required if students bring in their own fabrics.

In this class you will construct one bra with optional underwire and no padding. You’ll take home your custom bra pattern for all future bra-making! This is an intermediate class. Students should be comfortable sewing with stretch fabrics and elastic trim. For a great introductory course we recommend our Bralette class.

If you’re interested in creating a mastectomy bra, or a bra to accommodate a prosthesis, we highly recommend the classes at Bra-Makers Supply in Hamilton.
