We love the Saint Patrick's Day charm of this sweet spring print, Lucky Charm. There's just enough green in the scattered shamrocks to make sure you don't get pinched! The three leaves of the shamrock are said to stand for faith, hope and love, but if you are diligent, maybe you will find one with a fourth leaf, which is where the luck comes in! I remember sunny spring days, hunting tirelessly through fields just like this one, with it's fetching blues, pinks, reds, purples and golds to find that one Lucky Charm, the four leafed clover. And then getting distracted from my treasure hunt, my chubby five year old fingers picking clover flowers just like these to braid into the most beautiful crowns and necklaces ever to adorn a magical fairy tale princess.
The Lucky Charm 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 Lucky Charm fabric for whatever you choose to create. We are offering an array of accent color choices for this colorful clover fabric! From the left, we have; Merlot, Blackberry Cream, Iris, our new Saint Patrick's color Clover, Fern or Golden.
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. To make a matching panty for your new bra, see our Lucky Charm Bamboo Jersey Panty Kit. If your preference is a bralette, we are also offering a Lucky Charm Bralette and Panty 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.
