Those who've been garment sewing know the name Cashmerette! Specializing in sewing for curves, Cashmerette has now expanded their sewing line of patterns to include a wider ranges of sizes and most recently, LINGERIE! We are offering kits for their newest pattern, the Willowdale, and we couldn't be more excited!
If you've been looking for a gorgeous bra without a floral motif- then Bridges is for you! The background color of this lace is a blue with a hint of grey and the embroidery geometric motif in pale yellow and lighter shade of blue-grey is reminiscent of structural elements. Its taylored and refined. We created the color "Bridges Blue", just to coordinate with this lace, and that's the color we'll send your kit in. This means the textures and pattern stand out, and allow this beautiful blue to become what your bra is all about. If you'd like to pop the yellow on the strap or the band elastics, please leave us a note and we'll add a bit for you. Our Legacy color Butterscotch is wonderful with this lace.
Our Willowdale Help Page contains all the info about selecting your kit size, your options, fabrics and lace. Its a great place to begin if you are newer to bra sewing or new to the Willowdale pattern- or both!
The Willowdale Pattern is available here from the Cashmerette website. The size chart is here, and the fitting guide is here. Don't forget to take advantage of your coupon code for the Willowdale Pattern!
