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 new pattern, the Willowdale, and we couldn't be more excited! 

This Willowdale kit is all about the PINKS! 

"Gidget" makes us think of plucky, spunky girls in the 1960s. She's frequently found on the beach and known for her entertaining antics. Maybe she's the one with the "beach life" flipflops decal on her minivan now ;) This cheery pink lace features large chrysanthemum style blossoms with a little sheen and a cute open weave for texture. Its perfect for allover styles. 

Rose Wine originated in Marseille, a Provence region in France. Well known for its beautiful color and crisp, fruity flavors, its easy to understand why rose wine has become so popular. It's part of the charcuterie board, warm weather barbeque and outdoor gathering culture. The lovely color of our Rose Wine Lace captures the same pretty pink of a lovely Rosé, and all the vibes. Plus, it's got an adorable "eye lash" feature along the edge!

Choose Rose Wine for a muted pink Willowdale or Gidget for a cheery Whisper pink Willowdale. The Gidget Bra featured is created by Nikki of Sewing My Style from the LilyPaDesigns Lanai Pattern. She walks you through this pattern in the 2023 Bra Sewing Bee, but this kit is for a Willowdale Bra in the same colors. We've included it to help you envision your Willowdale! She made her favorite panty, Pamela's Patterns UnDeniably Elegant Undies, to complete her set.

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

If you plan to make your matching panty with the Cashmerette Radcliffe, a smaller kit will use 1/2 yard and a larger kit will use 3/4 yard of lace. We'll follow your choices for your bra kit in your panty kit, so either all one color or with an accent, unless you tell us differently.

As always, feel free to choose your favorite elastics or narrow lace (leave us a note if you don't see your choice!). You can also add a 9" square of absorbent fabric for your panty panel! You can find our collection of Waist Lace and Elastics here, and our collection of Leg Lace here
