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!
Sometimes you want your lingerie to have pizzazz! Sometimes you want it to be a subtle accent that lets you or your clothing have the pizzazz. Our new Neutral Collection is an assembly of kits that have all the loveliness that comes with exquisite laces and custom-mixed colors, but with an understated elegance. Of course, sometimes neutral can also be ornate, and this is exactly the case with this black and gold beauty. This 13 1/2" wide lace is very flat and liquid, and will add a sophisticated luster to what's underneath. We'll pair the lace with our Basic color Midnight, which is what we have named elegant black. While the gorgeous Elizabethan-era strapless longline created by our Featured Artist Nadine is not made using the Willowdale pattern, we've included the photo because it shows just how stunning this lace will be on your Willowdale!
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!
