Come and learn all you need to know to sew a bra! You will learn to properly measure your body and choose the correct cup and band size for your bra. You will also learn construction techniques that can also apply to swimwear and formal wear. Learn how to manipulate the pattern to make the bra even more flattering.
IMPORTANT: Your first class will focus on measuring your body. If building a bra for yourself, wear a well-fitting bra with little or no padding. If building for someone else, bring that person to the first class for measuring. They will need to come to one other class for a fitting (3rd or 4th class)
