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! 

I love this lace. It's such a perfect balance between neutral and personality. There is a sweet, winding path right down the center of the lace, and it is festooned with the subtle charms of pink flowers with soft green leaves. We're calling it Primrose Path in the nicest connotation of that term, being a path strewn with flowers. We're picking up the color of the path with our fabrics, so this is a Taupe bra. I put it with a soft pink strap to nod to the subtle pink flowers, but you can have it all Taupe if you'd like. The gray in the background of the lace is also lovely, but the Taupe really sets off the lace better. This lace isn't very wide, so the largest sizes might not be able to do a true full lace overlay, but you can certainly add the lace in lots of fun places! 

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.
