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:
|1/2" Extra strap||1 1/2 yards||1 1/2 yards|
|Elastic Ribbon - 2y||1/2"||1/4"|
|Wide Plush Elastic||1 yard|
|Foldover Elastic||2 yards|
|Froth||1 1/2 yards|
|UltraWide Lingerie Elastic
We love the bright, happy blue, yellow and white that dance across this darling stretch lace. The lace is relatively opaque, so it comes with lots of possibilities. I think of how, even today, my daughter and I exchange remembrances all around the theme of "You are My Sunshine". She does indeed make me happy when skies are gray! The accent colors that we're presenting are Frost, Sunshine and Aegean. Our Featured Artist Clare used the Jordy Bralette pattern from Emerald Erin (changed up a lot) and the Ohhh Lulu Jasmine Bralette. She used the Primrose Dawn Dahlia Hipsters and the Evie La Luve Binky Panties for the bottoms.
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.
