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! 

Everything about this lace speaks feminine beauty. It makes us think about the song, "I Feel Pretty" from the old musical West Side Story! You're sure to feel so charming and stunning in this lace. It's gorgeous over our color Peaches, and the subtle variations in tone and sheen stand out in such a pretty way. Or take it up a notch and make a silk bra using Vanilla Cream Silk! This is the ideal lace for when you need something elegant and classy without being too loud. This lace is a stretch mesh, which makes it easy to work with, and perfect for both your Willowdale and for your undies! With embroidery along both edges, it's perfect lots of fun accents to your bra- I can see the motif as a powerband and along the cup edge of the band, or along the hook and eye. This lace isn't a traditional full lace overlay-type lace, but it can definitely be used to place beautiful embroidery all over your bra! 

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
