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 newest pattern, the Willowdale, and we couldn't be more excited!
What a beautiful vision of monochromatic loveliness! This ensemble (shown for reference-created using another pattern) is shown in full color, but it looks like grayscale with the many shades of gray! The lace motifs are oh-so-elegant. The center is solid, and has subtle rose forms woven into the fabric. The pearl gray edges are magnificent! It is hard to describe the elegant cross-hatching and flowers and swirls that also enter into the darker gray field in a sort of a crest. The overall look is rich, elegant, subtle and tasteful. We are offering this kit in our luxe Smoke Stretch Silk Satin Smoke with Sheer Cup Lining or Super Simplex with Sheer Cup Lining. Paired with perfectly matching elastics and band fabric, we present your Shades of Gray Bra.
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!
