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! 

When we were looking at this lace, we were reminded of the medieval period, with its striking color and intricate patterns. We thought that we should name it after one of the famous medieval queens - King Arthur's Guinevere, who was beautiful and mystical, just like this lace! Then our Featured Artist Asmaa made this gorgeous set out of Guinevere and Twilight, and we thought you might be inspired to make something up for yourself. The bra is a combination of the Grace bra from Annie and Myras and the Emily from Michelle’s Armoire. The undies are the Holly panties from Evie la Luve. I adore how she put it all together!! This kit is specific for the Cashmerette Willowdale Bra, and we're offering a Guinevere Stretch Lace Bra Kit which is suitable for most patterns. 

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.
