Hello and welcome to my bra making and lingerie sewing blog! I created this blog in order to share my bra making journey and showcase my projects, provide lingerie sewing tips and tricks, and serve as a bra making resource for my readers.
My name is Ying and I am the owner of an online lingerie sewing supplies shop called Tailor Made Shop. I launched my online business in May 2015 and the goal is to give sewists access to quality lingerie sewing supplies.
Why Bra Making?
In 2014, I got measured at a lingerie boutique and was told that the store didn’t carry anything in my size. My response was: f*ck that. I signed up for a bra-making class and it changed my life.
My passion for bra-making grew tremendously, to the point that I decided to leverage my industry background and experience in Production, Sourcing, & Development to launch an online fabric and trims shop to give others access to quality bra-making materials so they could do the same.

About Tailor Made Shop
I started Tailor Made Shop in May 2015 when I realized that there were not many shops that offered lingerie sewing supplies. As a newbie bra maker, it was frustrating to have to source my materials from several different places whenever I needed to gather materials for a project. So I decided to leverage my industry experience in Sourcing & Development in Fashion and launched an online fabric and trims shop to give sewists access to quality bra-making materials.
I firmly believe that you can make bras that practically look store bought. I’ve curated a selection of beautiful and quality materials to help you achieve that.
Also, fun fact about the shop selection. I have major wanderlust and I love to source materials during my travels. The goodies in my shop hail from Japan, UK, Netherlands, Canada and other places around the world.

I am working on it, but it’s very slow progress! 🙂 I hope to have it released some time this year.

That is fantastic. I will keep a look out for the release.
Sending you my best wishes for this endeavour. I imagine it has its challenges. Regards
