“Bra Design & Draft”
Our favorite fairy bra mother, Beverly Johnson, is coming back down to the lower 48 to give another awesome weeklong course in bra-making!
Can you imagine drafting a bra pattern to your actual body measurements, changing the original style lines to a designer look – then sewing that bra up with the knowledge that it will fit? If so, the Bra Design and Draft Class is the class for you.
This five-day class teaches you to create a design, then create the pattern by drafting it from body measurements. The basic bra can then be changed to create any style – whether you want a vertical, diagonal, curved seam or a long line. You will learn to tweak the pattern so it fits exactly. During this week, after drafting a pattern, you will be sewing a tester bra to test the fit of your pattern. There will be no actual sewing during class, but you may sew before class, during breaks and after class.
Please note, there will be no bra sewing direction given in this class – the class is concerned with the design and draft, rather than the construction. You MUST be familiar with both full band and partial band bra construction techniques and be able to sew those bras without guidance before attending this class. In other words, you must know how to sew both full and partial band bras prior to attending this course.
