Those who've been garment sewing know the name Cashmerette! Specializing in sewing for curves, Cashmerette has now expanded their sewing line of patterns to include a wider ranges of sizes and most recently, LINGERIE! We are offering kits for their newest pattern, the Willowdale, and we couldn't be more excited!
There is something magical about summer nights; holding onto the carefree days just a little bit longer, enjoying the warm evenings surrounded by fragrant seasonal blooms and seeing everything anew in the calm, dim light of backyard lanterns. Some of our best memories are of lingering summer evenings, past twilight, where time stands still and the best features of the landscape are the only thing that stands out from the darkness. Whatever your memories of summer nights, fanciful or romantic, keep them close with Summer Nights Stretch Lace.
This lace features a Midnight background with emerging Dahlia blossoms and pale green accents. It looks great over both Midnight or Dahlia so we are offering you the choice of color for your fabrics and also the accent color you'd like for your elastics.
The bra photo is not made with the Willowdale but it will help you visualize Summer Nights on your Willowdale! Summer Nights is 7" wide, so the largest sizes will have to use careful pattern placement for the full lace option.
Our Willowdale Help Page contains all the info about selecting your kit size, your options, fabrics and lace. Its a great place to begin if you are newer to bra sewing or new to the Willowdale pattern- or both!
The Willowdale Pattern is available here from the Cashmerette website. The size chart is here, and the fitting guide is here. Don't forget to take advantage of your coupon code for the Willowdale Pattern!
