For this kit, you will be lining the cups and frame with the self rose print charmeuse fabric. If you choose to make either the Boylston Bra or Marlborough Bra with cut and sew foam, you can opt to not line the cups.

The Making Of: Rose Charmeuse Boylston Bra

Rose Charmeuse Boylston Bra Orange Lingerie x Tailor Made Shop Bra Kits

Happy Monday guys! I’ve gotten requests for work in progress photos, so I will make an effort this year to post them more often. Here’s the first one of the year: I’m currently working on a Rose Print Stretch Charmeuse Boylston Bra with cut and sew foam.

Rose Charmeuse Boylston Bra Orange Lingerie x Tailor Made Shop Bra Kits

Two things of note: Because I’m using cut and sew foam for the cups, I am not lining the cups. I just cut one set of the cup pieces in the self rose print charmeuse fabric. I’m also lining the frame with the stretch charmeuse so I cut two sets of the frame pieces.

Crushing the top edge of the cut and sew foam cup with zig zag stitching so the cup fabric will turn over more smoothly. This tip is from Beverly Johnson’s Bra Making: Foam, Lace & Beyond class. And this is the reason why I recommend all of Beverly Johnson’s Bra Making Craftsy classes: they are an endless treasure trove of bra making tips and tricks. (Note: Clicking on the craftsy links and purchasing a class will result in a small commission for me. Thank you for your support. <3)

It’s been a year since I made a cut and sew foam bra. To quickly refresh my memory of the cut and sew foam process, I click to the lesson and chapter that I need and watch it at 2x speed. Super convenient and super helpful. Beverly herself is always ready to answer any questions you pose on the chat feature.
