Hiatus Update and Bra Making!

Firstly, I apologize for the lack of posts in the past two months. I disappeared into my workload for both work and school this summer and neglected to update regularly. (Fortunately, my summer attire is pretty uninteresting…I primarily live in soft tees and short shorts.)

My absence is also prolonged by aggressive, back-to-back trips out of town after an exhausting summer based in the city. One of my recent adventures is a week-long excursion to Vancouver, where I spent the first two days of the trip in a bra-making workshop at A Great Notion. I got the idea to take a bra-making class after seeing Tasia of Sewaholic post about her bra-making experience with Johanne Brousseau here. I struggle with buying bras that fit at the retail level, so I was definitely interested in taking up bra-making so I can customize the fit (and details, of course).

Initially, I checked for class options locally…and was surprised to find that New York did not have any offerings (or maybe my googling skills are questionable…?). I emailed the team at A Great Notion to see if they are offering the class again…and it turns out they are! I booked the class and decided to cross Vancouver off my travel bucket list at the same time.

(Incidentally, there are now suddenly a slew of bra making classes being offered! Craftsy now has a Bra Making Class and The Sewing Party will host Bra Making with Madalynne on November 8th, 2014.)
