Finally! Everything you have wanted to know about making bras, but couldn’t find the information! This is the first book of its kind written as a textbook for the professional made-to-measure bra-maker but those home sewers who are up for a bit of a challenge will find this book a complete reference on bra design, draft, fit and construction. Even if you never sew a bra for anyone else, you will thoroughly enjoy making your own well-fitting and supportive bras. Author Beverly Johnson explains how to obtain the pattern for your bra, and there are many sources, and how to change that one basic pattern into a library of bra styles and designs. You will learn to fit like a pro, how to choose and control fabric, and how to duplicate all of the professional techniques you see in ready to wear, including strapless, nursing and mastectomy bras. There are optional patterns to purchase that were developed for use with this book. Please see the pattern section for the new Classic Bra pattern. 240 pages, 4 in colour. You can also buy the book on CD!
