Are you ready for your next bra-making challenge?! Then join us for the second project in our lineup of bra making workshops: the Lusamine Underwire Bra by LilypaDesigns!
Janna-Marie Crawford will guide students through making View B (non-lace uppercup version) of the Lusamine bra: a non-stretch bra specifically designed for narrow breast roots + lots of projection. With shape and drafting geared toward the large cup, small band set, this bra gently encourages a more centered, lifted shape.
The workshop will begin with individual, private fit sessions to determine cup and band sizing, followed by step-by-step instruction through the entire bra making process. Students will leave the class with a perfect (or near perfect!) fitting underwire bra, and foundational skills and confidence to venture further into the world of bra making!
This pattern is size inclusive, with band sizes 28-44" and cups A-KK.
