When you purchase one of our bra kits, we take the guesswork out of bra building by putting everything you'll need together for you to make a beautiful bra using your own pattern. If you would like to purchase a pattern, we have a great selection of patterns on our patterns page for you to choose from, both paper and downloadable.
You may have noticed our Bamboo Jersey men's underwear kit "Daggers". We thought this print was an obvious choice for the men out there, and didn't anticipate how popular it would be with the ladies! So here you go, a whole line of women's kits in our Bamboo Jersey print, Daggers. No accent color choices here, all of the elastics for this kit will come in Midnight. This fabric is a great choice for those of you that are tired of 'another floral' and ready for something with some edge! Other offerings in this print include Daggers Bamboo Jersey Panty Kit and Daggers Bralette and Panty Kit.
The Daggers fabric 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. This kit is only offered in the Larger size so that you will be sure to have enough Daggers fabric for whatever you choose to create.
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. You will also get Frost or Midnight twill tape. If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. For an extra charge you can get strap elastic with rings and slides in Midnight. The hook and eye unit will also be Midnight. 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.

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.
