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! 

We're loving the fun Celtic knots on this lace, and it makes us feel like dancing! Back in 500 BC, a group of people called the druids incorporated dance into their religion, and these dances took on many intricate, circular forms. Flash forward a couple of millennia or so, and you'll find a group of Irish-American dancers who created a dance routine to Irish music, and Riverdance was born. 

This stretch lace is perfectly paired with either Frost or matched with our color Ink. You can choose either colorway for your Riverdance bra. Our Featured Artist Liz made a Willowdale with a full lace overlay for her fresh spring bra featuring the classic navy and white combination. With this kit, you can choose to pop against the white (Frost) or meld with the navy (Ink). Liz also married her Riverdance creations with the other kits for this month into a darling capsule. She used the Evie La Luve Freya Panty pattern for the darling matching look. Check out our Blue Jasmine kit and our Cottage Garden print for a darling capsule collection! Riverdance Stretch lace is 9", which means that it's available as a lace upper cup or full lace bra if you choose. 

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.
