One of the most common questions I get on my Etsy Shop is “How do I get started with Bra Making?” My usual response is to direct the person to join the Bra Makers Group – Beginners to Intermediate (a Facebook group where people share their bra projects, tips on fit, and patterns and resources). I also direct them to sign up for Beverly Johnson‘s wonderful class: Sewing Bras: Construction & Fit.
Obviously that is not the most comprehensive answer and I thought I could do better. So I decided to assemble this guide. I hope this series is helpful to anyone who is looking to get into Bra Making and I hope it is still a useful resource for those of us who are more advanced bra makers!
