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! 

In Greek mythology, Persephone was the goddess of spring growth. When she returned to Haides to spend half the year with her husband, the leaves fell and the earth turned to winter. With the approach of autumn, we thought we would bring you this delightful tale and our newest Kit of the Month. Persephone Falling is our darker hued kit with a Taupe base and your choice of Beachcomber Coral, Fern or Taupe elastics. A subdued background with flowers that remind us of the soon to appear mums, this lace portrays the best of autumn- poised for change and a little bit sultry, just the way the earth transforms as if Persephone has descended again. Persephone Rising is our vibrant colored kit with a Frost base and your choice of Rosy Glow, Iris, Clover or Frost elastics. Pinks, blues, reds and daisies promise of a spring to come with the return of Persephone! Like a garden, poised to awaken in the first few rays of sunshine, this lace is abounding in excitement. Whether you choose Persephone Falling or Persephone Rising, you will be charmed by Persephone!

Our Featured Artist Nikki made this lovely Persephone Rising Willowdale! We love this lace as an all over overlay- its an alluring combination of color, patterns and tone-on-tone textures. Nikki pulls together all these elements and presents them to their best advantage. Delicate pattern placement on her bra creates balance without being too symmetrical- something that a random, all-over print lace like this is so good at when in creative hands. We love the inspo and can't wait see what you do with Persephone Rising! While the Persephone Falling Bra was made with a different pattern, we've included it here to help you visualize the lace in action.

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
