Lingerie Sewing Weekend Round Up

From this week:

Regan from Solitude of Sewing made a fun bralette and underwear set using an allover stretch lace and whimsical print. You can view the project here.

Jade from These Days made a gorgeous Marlborough Bra using our silver charmeuse bra kit. You can view her project here.

The Maker Style Podcast will be covering bra and lingerie making this month! In this week’s episode, Rachel chats with Sarah from Ohhh Lulu. They talk about Sarah’s lingerie aesthetic and what inspires her patterns and designs. Head to Rachel’s site to listen to the podcast here.

Speaking of Ohhh Lulu, Sarah is hosting a Valentine’s Day sew along! You will be making a three piece set consisting of a soft bra, a garter belt, and a pair of underwear. If you are interested in partaking, you can read more about the sew along here!

Two classes are better than one! Buy a Craftsy class and get a second class of equal or lesser value for free! Use coupon code BOGOJAN17 at checkout. This is a good time to pick up Beverly Johnson’s Lingerie Making Courses if sewing lingerie is part of your new year’s resolutions!

If you are new to sewing lingerie and want to start with something basic, I would recommend Beverly Johnson’s Sewing Panties: Construction & Fit course.

Ready to tackle your first underwire 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 lingerie sewing skill set, then I recommend the following classes:

Sewing Bras: Designer Techniques by Beverly Johnson

Sewing Bras: Foam, Lace, & Beyond by Beverly Johnson

(Note: Clicking on the craftsy links and purchasing a class will result in a small commission for me. Thank you for your support. <3 This promotion ends on January 15th.)

Have a great weekend everybody!
