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! 

Isn't this a beautiful bra? Our Featured Artist Asmaa, who won the Great British Sewing Bee last year, made this beautiful Willowdale that converts from a strapped bra to a strapless, and we think it's super cute! We're sending our legacy color Buttermilk with this kit, and we love it with the Stretch Silk Satin in Vanilla Cream, which is an option on this one. This is a stretch mesh lace, so it works wonderfully for undies as well as for your bra. Asmaa covered her entire bra with the lace, and you can too! Just add a second yard of lace to your kit. 

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
