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! 

It's approaching November as I write this, and all around me are leaves in their glory. For this reason, we're riffing on a leaf theme for many of the kits that are being introduced this month, including this one! This kit was born when I found this print -- what a celebration of leaves! I love that it isn't tied to the oranges and yellows so typical of fall, but that it rather plays with all the colors of the rainbow. Many of our fall colors were lifted right out of this print!

Then I found this dye to match stretch lace -- another playful leaf homage. It can be dyed to any color! You can play with this in any way that you like. You can pick up one of the print colors and make a bra with a uniform color so that you can set it off with some super cute undies! You can pick up a Bamboo Undie kit here and put some of the print on your band to accent your single-color bra. You can put your lace on a black cup (we found that this looks best) to really pop the dancing leaf pattern of the lace. I like it best when the lace, band and elastics are all in the same color and the black works to pop the lace. For a bra with a lace upper cup like the Willowdale, you can match everything together and get the lace pattern highlighted on that pretty upper cup. This is also a great lace for a full lace overlay. You'll have beautiful but subtle visual texture -- a real tone-on-tone look. The possibilities are endless!

This kit is for the Lace Bra, and it does not include the print. You can choose any of our colors for this bra. If you'd like for us to give you a black cup, we have an option you can select, but otherwise everything will be the same color. As always, just leave us notes and we'll make things just the way you prefer. If you want your bra to coordinate with the print, choose Dahlia, Sand, Butterscotch, Emerald, Wedgewood, Amethyst or Cocoa Butter (shown from the left in the photo over the print). Otherwise, just choose your favorite color for your Dancing Leaves bra!

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!
