Introduction to Bra Making - Weekend

Donna Whitaker of Curvy Girls are Chic, will guide us through making a Wired Bra pattern. Donna will teach us how to measure, cut, sew, fit, and alter a custom underwire bra. The Labellum Bra pattern is available in a wide range of sizes from 29A to 42GG and three different styles.

The beginner class will only teach one view; the underwire regular bra. This workshop has two options – evenings class less intense and held over four evenings and weekend held over two days.
