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! 

The word sylvan refers to a dark, peaceful wooded area which suggests a pleasant feeling. There's a second spelling of the word, which is the one we've chosen, just to make sure you aren't thinking about tutoring! Either way, this gorgeous kit lets you create a stunning Willowdale bra and optional matching undies, and it is the very first kit in our new Willowdale Kit of the Month Club! 

The lace itself is a deep teal green, and has a bit of luster to it. It isn't shiny at all, it just has a subtle luminescence. We've paired it with our color Emerald, which is a beautiful teal green that is just a bit lighter. Our Featured Artist Nikki made her gorgeous Willowdale with a full lace overlay, and used the beautiful edge of the lace on the bottom of the band to create a semi-longline look. Don't you just love it?? As designed, all the fabrics and elastics for this bra kit will be Emerald. We tried to get a picture of the lace to give you an idea of its actual color. It's a hard one to photograph! Try Bra Tulle to let your fabric disappear behind your lace and allow the depth of textures to really appear. Finally, we found a perfect teal green leaf bra charm to add to all the kits while supplies last.

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!
