Where can I buy lingerie supplies?
What kind of sewing experience do I need?
Making a bra requires some basic sewing experience, because you will be working with a lot of elastic and tiny, very curved seams. The great thing about making a bra is that it helps with your sewing accuracy and creativity in so many other areas!
What happened to the sew along badges?
I had to move them! Hosting images for blogs outside of my site was causing issues. Please visit this page if you’d like to download your own badge.
What pattern should I use?
During this sew-along, I used patterns with a full frame (also known as a “full band” bra). Many of the steps here can apply to any bra pattern.
Can I make a foam bra?
Foam bras are not covered in this sew along. However, I wrote a separate series on adapting underwired patterns to use foam linings. See Make a Foam Cup Bra.
Note: When shopping for underwires, buy more than one size! For insurance. See also: Fitting an Underwire.
