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

This year we have a second kit for March, and this one is a more subtle and neutral riff on green. This lace is super soft, and is embroidered all over with 4 leaf clovers. There is nothing cartoonish about these shamrocks though, and every one of them has the lucky 4 leaves. We're pairing this lace with Smoke to keep it neutral, and we've created a lighter version of our color Dusty Sage to play with the elastics. You can do the entire bra in Smoke though to keep it very neutral. Finally, we like it with a Frost cup if you're wanting your bra and Foxy undies to match. It's soooo cute!

Nadine was the Featured Artist for this set, and she thought of beautiful gray cliffs rising out of mossy banks. Isn't it gorgeous?!? She based the bra on the Jessica pattern from B,Wear and used a darted lace overlay on the lower part of the cup. She then continued the lace from the cup onto the band, and I love how it looks! Her lace work is amazing! She got both the Smoke and the Moss elastics and used them both. The undies are her Apostrophe panty, and the Binky Panties and the Chloe Thong from Evie LaLuve.

Sewing Notes:
The strength of our microduoplex fabric, which makes it so wonderful for bras, also makes it hard to puncture with needles and pins. This is true with most duoplex fabrics. Use either fine silk pins or Wonder Clips to pin (I find Wonder Clips work best), and a Microtex 80/12 needle with a smooth thread like Superior Threads So Fine or Mettler Metrosene to make it easy to sew. In my testing, the So Fine thread and Microtex 80/12 won the challenge of the nicest stitch on microduoplex, and as long as my presser foot completely covered the seam allowance, I found it just as easy to sew as quilting cotton. I moved the needle to the right to set my seam allowance at 1/4" since my presser foot is a bit wide. 
We offer all these pins, clips, needles and thread here on our site.
