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!
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! Frost base fabrics let the lace stand out so 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! While the bra featured in the photo isn't a Willowdale, you can get an idea of how adorable this lace will be on your Willowdale.
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! We'll include the sweet daisy charm in your kit -- the white for the full lace overlay and the yellow for the lace upper cup.
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!
