Welcome to the Fresh Collective -- a collection of kits and materials which are geared for the young and the young at heart. These kits are put together differently than our typical bra kits. We know that your young person wants something fresh and cool, and that style takes precedence over function. Of course, we can't forget the function, but we have LOTS of different options for you to achieve the function while rocking the style. Extra straps, fun colors, wide lower bands, and lots of decorative possibilities let you or the one you're sewing for be the designer. If you are sewing for a young person but want to make it a surprise, or if your young person doesn't know what she wants except that it's amazing, then pick up one of our style add-ons. A twenty-something fashion design student has mixed up a sporty look and a girly look, so you'll have things to play with and ideas to run with.

For this kit, the Sporty and Girly Add-On include:

Sporty Girly
 1/2" Extra strap 1 1/2 yards 1 1/2 yards
Elastic Ribbon - 2y 1/2" 1/4"
ExtraWide Band Elastic 1 yard
Foldover Elastic 2 yards
Froth 1 1/2 yards
Bow 1
Scallop Strap 1 1/2 yards


The Brambleberry kit features our very fun Brambleberry stretch lace. This lace is overprinted with all sorts of purples -- from warm to cool and light to dark, all in a floral kind of way. Then there are this little pops of orange, which are super fun to play with. You can see that we used that orange with our Beachcomber Coral to accent a base of Grape and an accent of Phlox. The accent colors that we're presenting are Grape, Phlox and Beachcomber Coral. Our Featured Artist Clare used the Studio Costura Hanna Bralette and the Emerald Erin Jordy Bralette patterns along with the Evie La Luve Binky Panties and the Studio Costura Vera Panties.

Mix it up however you like -- that's the beauty of the Fresh Collective kits. Start with your front fabric (we start with sheer and lightly supportive Bra Tulle) and then choose your back fabric (we start with lightly supportive Stretch Mesh). In the front you can choose either stretchy or supportive fabrics in a wide variety of weights and levels of sheerness from quite sheer to completely opaque. Check out our Fresh Collective Help Page to understand your options and to see all the pictures.
