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! 

One of today's fashion trends is plaid, and it's all over the place! We played with plaid fabric already this season, and now we're playing with plaid lace. Yes, this plaid is a printed lace, and it's super cute. We used it with Midnight to create this Odessa corset top, but you can use it for your bra, just like our lovely customer Kristy did with her kit. She used the Blue Bayou accent color, and she also used it under the lace. Isn't is so cute? Think of a plaid upper cup and a black or blue lower cup, and then pick up the plaid again on the band. Or make your entire bra with a lace overlay! This lace works with Midnight and our new color Blue Bayou. I would suggest black if you're doing an overlay, and either color for lace accents. This is a perfect lace for a full lace overlay!

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
