For the beginning bra builder, this bundle gets you off to the right start! You'll receive both instructional videos from Monica from Bravo Bella, your choice of pattern and 2 white bra kits. Please note that Bras 102 will be downloadable only. There are two variations of the kit. One is for light to moderate support and features cotton jersey fabric and medium weight powernet. The other is for strong support and features microduoplex, stabilized sheer tricot and firm weight powernet. Both kits come with enough fabrics, elastics and other findings to make 2 wearable bra muslins.
The cotton jersey kit is very easy to cut and sew. You'll want to make sure that the stretch is going in opposite directions between the outside and the lining of the bra cups. The microduoplex is a truly luxurious, buttery, wonderful bra fabric that requires a bit more special handling. The strength of the fabric, which makes it so wonderful for bras, also makes it hard to puncture with needles and pins. Use either fine silk pins or Wonder Clips to pin (I find mini-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 I found it just as easy to sew as the jersey. We offer all these items here on our site.
