Our Kits take the guesswork out of lingerie building by putting together everything you'll need to make beautiful lingerie using your own pattern. If you need a pattern, we have a great selection on our Patterns Page, both paper and downloadable..

In the starkness of winter there is subtle beauty at every turn. The cotton bolls on this winter print have a simple, homespun appeal that is just as beautiful as even the most elaborate of floral prints. There is even a harbinger of the Spring that seems so far away in the delicate butterflies found on each cotton stem. Cotton bolls on our ultra soft cotton jersey fabric, what else could we name this beautiful print but Cotton Squared?  It is the first in our new series "Natural Fibers Kits." For those who love a cotton jersey bra but are looking for something lovely instead of a solid, look no further for your bra making venture! We've found a place where we can get high quality cotton jersey printed and are putting it into a bra kit with everything you need to make a beautiful cotton jersey bra. 

Cotton jersey can make a terrific bra, but is a better choice for light to medium support. If you can use tricot for your bra, you can use cotton jersey, and you use it in the same way, with the stretch going in opposite direction between the lining and the outer cup. Run the stretch up and down on the outer cup and across on the lining. I use a size 44/12 wire and am a 36E and I can use cotton jersey. Cotton jersey is very easy to sew and doesn't need any special techniques to sew well. Cotton jersey is also a great choice for panties.  Bear in mind that Cotton Jersey does not have the perfect stretch and perfect recovery of our Bamboo Jersey. It will have a bit of a give and then be done, but the benefits of the more natural fabric are worth the trade off for many folks.

The kit comes standard with white cotton jersey lining and channeling for under the cups.  If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. We think our basic color Frost would be beautiful as accents, but because it is such a perfect match, we also pulled our Legacy color Sand out of retirement especially for this Cotton Squared kit. You may choose either color for your accents. We are also offering this Natural Fibers Kit in a Bra and Panty Kit. A Bra and Panty Kit will have all the elements of the Bra Kit but instead of a fat quarter of this beautiful Cotton Jersey print you will receive 5/8 yard plus the addition of 2-1/2 yards of 3/4" Foldover Elastic.
