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.

Did you know that magnolias begin blooming in February! I didn't, but I found this out when I was looking for a way to name this gorgeous kit. The background color reminds me of the back of my magnolia leaves, which a muted and natural rosy color which pairs beautifully with our color Rose Clay. Then you add the flower forms in a creamy white, just like the showy blooms of a magnolia tree, and you have a stunning picture of the promise of spring moving through the land, creeping from south to north. My magnolia usually blooms around Mother's Day.

Our beautiful stretch lace for this kit is 9" wide, so you have a lot of flexibility with this kit. We're combining Rose Clay and Cream for this kit with Rose Clay fabrics and Cream elastics. If you match your fabrics and elastics you'll have the flowers be the star, and you can match them in all Rose Clay or all Cream. It's all beautiful!

Our lovely Featured Artist Clare made her this sweet Hanna bralette, and I love how it turned out. Isn't her workmanship amazing? She took advantage of the stretch lace to create this almost tank top feeling. I absolutely love it!

This bra kit features your choice of Microduoplex, Super Simplex, Tricot, Sheer Cup Lining 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 if you pick up an extra bra finishing kit. To get the second bra with larger sizes, upgrade to the half yard of cup fabric and add a bra finishing kit.

Sewing Notes:
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.
