We are experimenting this winter with a duo of similar but contrasting prints that we call Sun Valley. With the 1936 opening of Sun Valley, "America's First Destination Ski Resort", celebrities flocked to the area to see America's new and glamorous winter wonderland. And they never turned back. Ski resorts are still a favorite winter destination and our new Sun Valley prints are perfect for winter lingerie whether you are going skiing or not!
The Sun Valley Mountains print featured on the bra is luxurious, with a 4-way stretch and perfect recovery. Bamboo jersey is a great fabric for lingerie -- antibacterial, breathable, soft, light, airy and altogether yummy. Because the print is a 4-way stretch knit you can cover the band of your bra with the print for an all-over look. We are offering this Sun Valley Mountains Bra Kit in the Larger size only this winter, so you will have plenty of fabric for whatever you decide to create from this beautiful print. You can choose your own accent color for this kit from Glacier, French Blue, Golden, Storm and Buttermilk and we will dye your elastics and your hook and eye to this color.
The kit will come with your choice of Frost or Midnight materials underneath. You may choose either Frost or Midnight for your band materials and the channeling for under the cups. If you use Frost, the colors will appear more true. If you choose to go with Midnight it will blend well with the print for a more cohesive look but the colors will be softened. You will also get Frost or Midnight twill tape. If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. If you want an elastic strap it will match your accent color. The hook and eye unit will also be dyed to your accent color. Some gals like to use Spacer Foam under the cups to add a bit more body to the cup, and you can order a kit cut of spacer in Frost or Midnight for this purpose.
This amazingly soft bamboo jersey would also make a wonderful pair of panties! You can get our Sun Valley Mountains Panty Kit here, or for some mix and match fun, order our new Sun Valley Mix and Match Bra and Panty Kit and use your Sun Valley fabrics any way you choose! We are also offering a Sun Valley Mountains Bralette Kit.

Remember to cut your fashion jersey a bit smaller than your more stable fabric. Cut as small as 1/16" for tiny spans and up to 1/4" for larger spans. Saturate your bamboo with starch and let it dry flat, then sew it without needing to wrestle with the softness of the fabric.
