You are going to love this project! Bodil uses the Olivia Bra by B, Wear in her sew along to walk you through creating a lovely and elegant beginner lace bra! There is a full lace overlay with a balconette cup underneath, and an easy-to-fit vertical seam up the center front. You'll have both sheer and opaque base fabrics, so you'll have your choice of style, and we're including plenty of fabric so that you can make a mistake or two. We'll be using white buttons on your kit rather than the pretty turquoise ones that Bodil used on hers. Find your pattern here.
We're offering a couple of options on this kit. You can pick up matching thread, and you can also pick up some Water Soluble thread. This is super helpful to be able to re-use your findings if you make a mistake while you learn. Just remember to re-sew with regular thread before you wash your garment ;).
