    Class - Strapless Bra and Bustiers

    Class - Strapless Bra and Bustiers , Call to set a date

    A five-day advanced level class strictly devoted to making the most difficult of all bra styles - the strapless bra and the bustier. There are only slight differences between the two and both start from the same basic block.  A strapless bra has defined bra cups and hooks and eyes in a lower cut back, while a bustier can have straps, and a solid fabric as well as a higher back. Please note this is NOT an advanced Corset class, but an advanced class for drafting, and sewing the strapless bra with variations to make a bustier. You MUST have your BRA pattern that fits you well in order to take this class. Materials included.

    Class - Master Swimwear

    Class - Master Swimwear , Call to set a date

    If you already know how to make swimwear but would like to master advanced swimwear styles and construction techniques, this course is for you. You will learn to make bikinis, monokinis, unikinis and posing suits for fitness competitions (body builders). You will learn to change the style of your swimsuit pattern, draft and add ruching and the Brazilian scrunch. Learn to make bindings from fabric, and install elastic into strapping like a pro. This is NOT for a beginner sewist, but for someone with intermediate to advanced sewing skills. Students need to know how to sew swimwear before taking this class, as  basic swimwear construction will not be taught in this class. (We suggest you consider Swim Week to teach you the basics of swimwear)  All materials, elastics, fabrics, foam cups etc. are available for purchase separately.

    Class - Foam Cup Design & Construction

    Class - Foam Cup Design & Construction , Call to set a date

    These five days will teach you all the fundamental foam techniques - working with pre-formed seamless foam cups that create a smooth profile PLUS the magic of cut-and-sew foam by the metre. The cut-and sew method allows you to create whatever shape and style you want, and to use any fabric or lace to cover the cups. You will learn to use an artificial seam allowance that is a must for making a partial band style and how to attach the straps that can be problematic with foam. We have tricks that allow you to cover cups and sew beautiful bras that rival ready-to-wear. This is a week jam packed with foam, fun and new friends! You must already be proficient at sewing bras - no beginner bra-makers! We will assume that you can already sew a bra without guidance. Bring your bra patterns to class.

    Machines available for rent for students who do not wish to bring their own machine. Machine rental is $50 for the 5 days.
