Welcome to the May 5th, 2017 edition of Lingerie Sewing: Weekend Round Up!
The Lingerie Sewing: Weekend Roundup is a curation of a few projects/ongoing events in the lingerie making community. It’s a quick catch up for you to enjoy over the weekend with a cup of coffee or tea. If you want to be part of the weekend roundup, shoot me an email at thetailormadeblog[@]gmail.com with links to your instagram, blog post, or just photos if you don’t have a blog and I’ll be sure to include your work!

Projects & Makes
- Regan made two bras inspired by the characters Tina and Queenie from the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. What a fun project!
- Kat sewed up a gorgeous self-drafted partial band bra in pink. I love the shape and style lines of that bra!
- Heather gives us the deets on her white lace Harriet Bra and also shares her thoughts on the Harriet Bra Pattern.
- Ginny made a matching blossom bralette and panties set for a friend. How awesome is that?

- Ready to tackle your first bra? Then sign up for Beverly Johnson’s Sewing Bras: Construction & Fit course!
- If you’ve made a couple of bras and you’re ready to expand your bra making sewing skill set, then I recommend the following classes: Sewing Bras: Designer Techniques and Sewing Bras: Foam, Lace, & Beyond.
- If you are completely new to lingerie sewing and want to start with something basic, I would recommend Beverly Johnson’s Sewing Panties: Construction & Fit course.
Note: I want to point out that I actually paid full price for all of Beverly Johnson’s Bra Making courses and I think they are worth every penny and more. I constantly refer back to the material and learn something new all the time!
That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend everyone!
