News & Events
Kirstin of @smallbobbins, Laura of @thespeckyseamstress and Roy @romy.kate are hosting the Knicker November Challenge! As per Kirstin:
What’s the challenge? It’s pretty simple; sew a pair of knickers! (That’s ‘underwear’ for the non-Brits out there!) Although, really, you can sew any sort of undergarment that you’d like to! The point of #KnickerNovember is to encourage anyone who’s interested in sewing underwear/lingerie to just give it a go! If you’ve been waiting for a sign, if you’ve been waffling on the idea, if you’ve been thinking about it for a while, this is the time to do it!

New Lingerie Pattern: Eve Bra Cups
Jennifer of Porcelynne just released a unique underwired bra pattern where the cups and band patterns are modular. You will purchase the cups pattern after you have determined your band size and wire size using the separate Eve Bra Band pattern (more on that below).
You can buy the Eve Bra Cup Pattern for Regular Wire here.
You can learn more about the Eve Classic Bra in this video here.
You can read about this unique approach to bra sizing and more about the pattern here.
New Lingerie Pattern: Eve Bra Band
The Eve Bra Band pattern by Porcelynne is sold separately from the cups pattern. As per the pattern maker:
The first stage in making your own bra is to determine what wire size and style you wear. To determine this, I recommend conducting a wire trace of your breast root. Once you have traced your breast root, compare your wire trace up to our wire charts (available in each wire listing). Select your band by using the form on the band product page, then create a fitting band for your wire. Once you have confirmed that your band and wire are the best match for you, you should then proceed to the cup pattern.

That’s it for this week! Have a great weekend everyone!
