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 new pattern, the Willowdale, and we couldn't be more excited! 

We all have our own connections to the tiny, brightly colored paper tossed at some of the best events in our lives. Gatherings of friends and family, table-top decorations and our favorite funfetti in childhood birthday cakes- confetti means celebration and fun for everyone! This lace captures all these vibes and makes us smile. Vibrant, lively and perfectly timed to set the stage for your summer. Confetti pairs perfectly with Phlox or She Shed accents for bright, cheerful tones. You get the best read of the lace over Frost. She Shed is best to combine into a single look if you're just using lace accents, and Phlox works both ways! At 9" wide, Confetti is a gorgeous choice for a full lace overlay bra! 

Our amazing Featured Artist used her cap sleeve bra variation to create this beauty. We're always stunned by her creations, but her mashup of the back from Emily pattern from Michelle's Armoire and the Willowdale is especially lovely! She is a specialist at combining beauty and function- this cap sleeve variation is ideal for relieving shoulder pressure- and this bra really catches our eye with its vivacious palette. See the International Bra Bee Archives to catch her Sew Along in 2021 for her process making this practical and feminine bra style. She's also made up the more gorgeous pair of matching panties. She used Mabel pattern from Evie la luve for the knickers. 

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

If you plan to make your matching panty with the Cashmerette Radcliffe, a smaller kit will use 1/2 yard and a larger kit will use 3/4 yard of lace. We'll follow your choices for your bra kit in your panty kit, so either all one color or with an accent, unless you tell us differently.

As always, feel free to choose your favorite elastics or narrow lace (leave us a note if you don't see your choice!). You can also add a 9" square of absorbent fabric for your panty panel! You can find our collection of Waist Lace and Elastics here, and our collection of Leg Lace here.
