Learn how to make a beautiful bra that fits you using delicate lace fabrics, stretch powernet and elastics. During this invaluable 2 day course, you will use a commercial bra pattern to make a sample bra cup which will be fitted onto the body and adjusted to perfect the fit. After adjustments, your final pattern will be drafted. You will have the choice of making a bra with or without underwires.
