Our 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.
Our Field of Poppies Bamboo Jersey is a burst of beautiful, fun colors on an ultra soft bamboo base. Waving blossoms create movement and energy and really bring this print to life. We named this fabric after the iconic fields of poppies in France, and just like real flowers, our Field of Poppies is a glorious mix of pinks merging into reds. She Shed is the colorway we designed to accent the deep pink in the flowers, and its just perfect to bring out the brightest, cheeriest notes. Ink, a deep saturated navy, is the second accent color we are offering. Ink brings a more classic, peaceful feel. Whichever you choose, this adorable print is sure to become one of your favorites. The classically feminine and sophisticated color combination and full-of-life blooms make this print so versatile. Its a perfect place to start planning your summer me-made undergarments.
Our Featured Artist Liz made both a bra and a bralette with her kit. She used some optional wide laces and elastics to both riff on undies and to elevate the bras. The bralette is a modified Watson bra from Cloth Habit and the very cool stripe is the Lansdowne from Orange Lingerie. The undies on this one are the Thursday Thongs from Emerald Erin. Isn't this a gorgeous set? Liz had a Capsule Collection (read more in a minute) and the bra, the bralette and 4 pairs of undies with the bamboo in her kit (she had 3/4 yards). Unfortunately, almost all of our bamboo jersey capsules were sold out to our Kit of the Month members, but there are bra kits left for 6 people! Pick yours up now and add it to our Classic Spring Capsule and you can also have an entire array that all works together!
Our capsule and this bamboo jersey is built upon the classic combination of navy and an array of pinks, and contain laces and fabrics which coordinate in a variety of ways for an array of style from cute to sophisticated. Hop on over to our Classic Spring Wardrobe Capsule Collection page to see what's included. Its bursting with possibilities!

Remember to cut your fashion jersey a bit smaller than your more stable fabric. Cut as small as 1/16" for tiny spans and up to 1/4" for larger spans. Saturate your bamboo with starch and let it dry flat, then sew it without needing to wrestle with the softness of the fabric.
