Take your sewing (and bust!) to new heights by making the Sahaara Wireless Bra by Rubies Bras! The Sahaara is a wireless bra pattern that offers a minimal, relaxed design without compromising comfort and support.
In this two session workshop, Janna-Marie Crawford will guide students through making View B of the Sahaara Bra pattern: a longline wireless bra, made from a solid, low stretch fabric. Class will begin with each participant having a private fit session to determine cup and band sizing, followed by step-by-step instruction through the entire bra making process. Janna-Marie will demystify the world of bra findings and fabric, bra construction, and minor fit adjustments. Students will leave the class with a perfect (or near perfect!) fitting bra, and the foundational skills to make venture further into the wide world of bra sewing!
This pattern is size inclusive, with band sizes 24-46" and cups AA-L.
