If you are hesitant to start bra-making on your own, why not take an online class with the Fairy Bra Mother herself, in these top-selling classes through Craftsy. Once you buy the class, you can access the class to watch anytime,  forever!

The first class, Sewing Bras: Construction & Fit is where to start! Everything you need to know to make your first full-band bra. learn to measure, construct and fit this bra, with a bonus of some designer touches! We have the lowest price Craftsy can offer, especially for blog readers!

Once you have made a bra that fits, it's time to ramp up your bra-making skills.  In Sewing Bras: Designer Techniques, you will learn dozens of new techniques for modifying your bra pattern with techniques like you see in expensive ready-to-wear!

Ready to work with Lace edging? How about making a foam bra? Whether you want fabulous foam, or luscious lace (or both) you'll find out how in Sewing Bras: Foam, Lace & Beyond 

We haven't forgotten about swimwear either!  In Sewing Swimwear: the Supportive One-Piece, you will learn to measure and choose fabrics, construct and fit two styles of swimsuits. Best of all, learn to make and insert two types of built-in bras!

  1. Hello. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask a question, but I am not massively proficient at sewing, would making your own bra, which I am massively interested in, be a step too much for someone like me? Many thanks, Regards, Rachel Clark, London, UK

  2. As long as you can sew a 1/4" seam, your good! We suggest the Craftsy class to get you started as it is under $30 and will give you step by step the construction and the fitting

  3. This is a very good round up of information to review before starting a bra when you are planning a new project. I'll bookmark this post, so thank you, Beverly.

    1. I am still trying to figure out how to "pin" the post to the top so readers can find this information without scrolling down through masses of posts!
