Great news! The second class in the Sewing Bras series on Craftsy has launched today! If you have wanted to know all about Designer Techniques for your bras, this is the class to watch! You'll be able to make dozens of designer bras from all the techniques (over 30 in all!) shown in this class.
The class starts off by showing you how to change your full band bra into a partial band bra. How to draft it, and how to sew it, with all the little tricks I've learned over the years. Then I move into how to change the straps...here is the tapered padded strap on a fuchsia partial band bra.
Here is a short tapered strap on the ivory and green bra. What's that fabric, you ask? It's ivory duoplex with a design on it that I made with fabric markers!
Next, we look at frame modifications such as the downward hike, and the thin band. We will also learn how to make a Gothic Arch such as shown here in the navy bra. Do you love those tiny straps on this bra? I show you how to do that!
What about front closing? Yes, two types of front closing are demonstrated!
Here's two different racer style Y-back options!
There's even a lesson on the keyhole bridge!
I also teach 3 different types of power bars - internal, seamed and ruched!
