Our Lace Bra Kits take the guesswork out of bra building by putting together everything you'll need to make a beautiful bra using your own pattern. If you need a pattern, we have a great selection on our Patterns Page, both paper and downloadable.
You'll feel as fresh as a daisy wearing your new Daisy Daisy bra as you pedal along on your bicycle built for two! I loved the soft yellow of this darling floral patterned stretch lace, and I thought immediately of daisies! Our Featured Artist Kim J used the Berkeley by Orange Lingerie to create this adorable bra. She used the Frost base fabrics to let the lace stand out, and this is how we're kitting this one up. The cheery Canary accents on the strap and band elastics set off the lace and make the whole thing a charming interplay of yellow and white, just like a daisy! Her matching panties are the Chloe Thong by Evie La Luve. I know of several women who love this pattern! Isn't the lace accent on the front cute?
Speaking of cute, the daisy charm for the bridge is the perfect accent for this bra, and it makes the Daisy Daisy really special. We'll include a charm in your kit as long as we have them, so be one of the first to make sure that you get a charm!
This bra kit features either Microduoplex, Sheer Cup Lining, Super Simplex, or Microlycra as the base fabric. One kit contains everything that you need to make a bra and has enough fabric for 2 with many sizes. To get the second bra with larger sizes, upgrade to the half yard of cup fabric and add a bra finishing kit.

The strength of our microduoplex fabric, which makes it so wonderful for bras, also makes it hard to puncture with needles and pins. This is true with most duoplex fabrics. Use either fine silk pins or Wonder Clips to pin (I find Wonder Clips work best), and a Microtex 80/12 needle with a smooth thread like Superior Threads So Fine or Mettler Metrosene to make it easy to sew. In my testing, the So Fine thread and Microtex 80/12 won the challenge of the nicest stitch on microduoplex, and as long as my presser foot completely covered the seam allowance, I found it just as easy to sew as quilting cotton. I moved the needle to the right to set my seam allowance at 1/4" since my presser foot is a bit wide. I find it works well to saturate the lace with liquid starch and let it dry before laying out your pattern pieces and cutting your fabric. This stiffens the lace until you wash it and the lace has enough body to behave well in the sewing process.
We offer all these pins, clips, needles and thread here on our site.
