Bra Class Sew Along


Sew Along

Lets learn to construct a bra

AFI Atelier's Maya Bra by Ana Filimon (Romania)

Sign up will close Saturday, July 9th so that we can order wires and create kits!!!

 

This is a free pattern for you to start with on the journey of bra making.  In order to help with learning the materials, the kit for making your bra with all materials is included in this class!  This class is meant to get you started in bra making; you can expect for this first bra to be more of a muslin that you will use to make pattern adjustments for future bras. 

Pattern pieces are available only in a PDF download.

This sew along will be held on Friday night and Saturday.  Friday night will be cutting and starting to assemble cups.  Saturday will be completing construction.

You will need to have downloaded your pattern from AFI Ateliers website and printed your pattern pieces. Sizing for this pattern can be determined here. bra-size-calculator.  (Be sure to note what wire size they are suggesting for you.  You will need to tell us so we can order for your kit.)

Enter in your sizing information on this page, Maya Bra Pattern

Download your pattern and print the pattern pieces.

It's recommended to watch this video before class as well.  It will help you understand the process before we begin!  Bra Tutorial
