Our Kits take the guesswork out of lingerie building by putting together everything you'll need to make beautiful lingerie using your own pattern. If you need a pattern, we have a great selection on our Patterns Page, both paper and downloadable..

There is a loveliness in the stark colors and textures of the cold season. I love the way the bare birch trunks show their dramatic appeal during the deep midwinter. I think these little robins like them too! This is a lovely print that works all year long, but is particularly nice in winter.  For those who love a cotton jersey bra but are looking for something lovely instead of a solid, look no further for your bra making venture! We've found a place where we can get very high quality cotton jersey printed and are putting it into kits with everything you need to make a beautiful cotton jersey bra or bra and undies. 

Cotton jersey can make a terrific bra, and is a great choice for light to medium support when lined with another piece of cotton jersey with the stretch going in the opposite direction. If you can use tricot for your bra, you can use cotton jersey, and you use it in the same way, with the stretch going in opposite direction between the lining and the outer cup. Run the stretch up and down on the outer cup and across on the lining. I use a size 44/12 wire and am a 36E and I can use cotton jersey. If you're a larger size or need more support, you can line your cotton jersey with Sheer Cup Lining and have a fully supportive bra. Cotton jersey is very easy to sew and doesn't need any special techniques to sew well. Cotton jersey is also a great choice for panties.  Bear in mind that Cotton Jersey does not have the perfect stretch and perfect recovery of our Bamboo Jersey. It will have a bit of a give and then be done, but the benefits of the more natural fabric are worth the trade off for many folks.

The kit comes standard with white cotton jersey lining and channeling for under the cups.  If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. We think our basic color Frost is beautiful as an accent, or you can choose to pick up the breasts on the robins with Rosy Glow, the warm colors in the birches with Latte, or the darker colors in the birches with Storm or Midnight. You may choose any of these colors for your accents. We are also offering this Natural Fibers Kit in a Bra and Panty Kit. A Bra and Panty Kit will have all the elements of the Bra Kit but instead of a fat quarter of this beautiful Cotton Jersey print you will receive 5/8 yard plus the addition of 2-1/2 yards of 3/4" Foldover Elastic.
