    Although I love every part of the quilting process, sometimes I have to stop and make necessay things.
    I made these 6 bras over the week end. They range in cost from $10 - $14 and usually last me about 3 years. And they fit perfectly.

    Those are quite nice. Can't tell that they are homemade. What kind of fabric do you use? Do you make them to sell? I think you could make a little extra on the side if you did. :)

    I have one that looks like a twin to that white one. What a fantastic job!

    Wow--I'm impressed! Wish I had the talent to make some for myself. It's so hard to find styles that fit properly and then the fabrics are so limited...

    They are a little harder than you would think. So no I do not make them to sell. Fit is the key. I took a class in 07 to learn how to make them and have been making them since.
    I buy prepackage kits that are either tricot or cotton knit. I taught the class one time, and one time only although I had other requests. You really need to have strong sewing skills to make them.

    Those are very nice. I can't imagine the work that goes into them. I have never heard of classes to make them.
