Day One (10am - 6pm)

The first day of Bra Camp focuses on fitting the bra. We will go over the importance of finding the right size and shape underwires as well as a thorough look into bra sizes and the materials needed to create an underwire bra.

We then begin the individual fitting process. Bella will provide sample cup toiles in all sizes that you will try on to find your correct size as well as four different shaped underwires in all sizes to determine your underwire shape and size. Once both your cup size and underwire is determined you will sew a toile of the band to practice sewing techniques and to make sure the band fits properly.

Everyone will have the opportunity to have a one-on-one fitting with Bella. Together you will assess the fit and make the necessary modifications to your paper pattern. A fitting does require a certain amount of personal exposure, but they are completely private and done with the utmost care and respect. You may also assess the fit on your own. Whatever makes you feel comfortable! The day will end with a demonstration on how to modify your paper pattern to your specific needs.

Day Two (10am - 6pm)
Day two begins with a demonstration on how cut out the bra so that the lace is mirrored on both cups. The day is mainly is dedicated to sewing the final bra. Bella will teach you construction methods for achieving beautifully finished bra that looks just as good on the inside as it does on the outside!


This class is for intermediate to advanced sewists. You should know how to use a sewing machine and feel confident in handling small, slippery pieces of fabric. It’s helpful if you understand a bit about pattern modification, but you will be shown step-by-step how to modify your paper pattern.


+ Use of our Pfaff Ambition 635 sewing machines and Pfaff Admire 1000 overlockers in the classes. If you'd like to learn on your own machine then please do bring it along - please let us know the model in advance and bring your manual with you.

+ All tools and equipment

+ Drinks and sweet treats to keep you going throughout the class.


+ There will be time during the weekend where fittings are being held so you might want to bring along another sewing project to work on while they are taking place.
