Last weekend we held two days of Bra Making Workshops at our new space on Broadway Market. Nine wonderful women joined us and all made the most beautiful Madalynne x Simplicity bras!
In Saturday’s class we made the Madalynne 8228 halter neck bralette. It’s a great beginner bra making pattern and super easy to fit. On Sunday we made the Madalynne 8229 full cup underwired bra which is a perfect first underwire bra to sew.
There was breakfast and lunch and snacks including these amazing locally made sodas from Dalston’s Drinks…
Dalston de-lish drinks!
…and of course lots of sewing!
We just had a drop of some new lace in the studio and managed to sew up a speedy lilac sample in time for the class, look how pretty it is! The lilac and new black and white laces are up on the shop in bra kits now so have a go at making your own.
We had the best weekend bra making but don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what some of the lovely bra makers had to say about the classes:
“I had the best time with you all and I am so happy with my new bra/skills! I cannot believe the finished result and how simple the process was- it’s totally de-mystified the construction for me and I cannot wait to make more at home.”
“Thanks for a brilliant day. I learnt so much! The bra fits perfectly and can’t wait to make lots more!”
Fancy joining these ladies in becoming bra making queens? We’ve just announced two new dates in May, book your spot now!
