Underwire Bra // 1 Day // July 18

Need some support making a bra with...support? We're tackling underwire bras in this one-day workshop!

In this class, students will be making the Marlborough Bra by Orange Lingerie, which has cup sizes options of A to DD or DDD to J, with band sizes from 30 to 40.

As described by the pattern designer, the Marlborough is a supportive full frame underwire bra for everyday wear, featuring:

  • A three piece cup and power bar that allows for increased shaping and more ability to play with pattern prints and color combinations;
  • A comfortable scoop back that lies smoothly under clothes and enhances support; and
  • A lace upper cup

Skills learned:

  • Working with stretch lace, sheer nylon and tricot
  • Sewing with zig zag stitches
  • Working with several types of elastic 
  • Curved seams and underwire channels
  • Lining
  • Understitching
  • Attaching rings, sliders and clasps

Pattern and materials not provided. You will receive an email ahead of time with a list of all supplies to bring.

Skill Level: Intermediate, Advanced. You are comfortable on a sewing machine and have made several projects in the past, ideally with some experience in stretch fabric. You may be new to bra making or underwire bras.
