    No I haven't but will be watching to see if anyone has taken it. I would love to know how good the class is, since I can never find bras that fit!
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    It looks like it has some really good reviews. Don't forget, they will refund your money if you don't like the class.

    I have taken the class and she really seems to cover everything and puts you through the paces. I was tired of buying bras that "sort of " fit. She shows you how to make changes so that the bra will really fit decent. I bought 2 of her patterns and am very happy with the patterns, directions and class.

    I took Beverly's bra making class WAY back in the day, 1997 She was just starting out then. Her shop is now closer to my house, but she doesn't offer a refresher course so I bought the class as a Christmas gift to myself.

    I bought a new pattern several years later and gained weight afterward, I called the shop and the ladies working there couldn't help me. So I made a trip to the store when I knew Beverly would be there. She took me to the back of the store did a fitting and then told me what size to make and the proper pattern to buy.

    Wearing a bra that actually fit is SO worth it.

    When I get my sewing table a little less cluttered I need to watch the class and sew the bra I have had cut out for months.

    Interesting, I never thought about making my own bra.

    When I find a great fitting bra I really like and it fits great I buy all they have in my size. They are always discontinuing bras styles. I have three brands that make one style I will wear. I have enough stored to last me until I droop more. LOL
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    For those of you that sew your own bra, it is labor intensive to do?

    Would be frustrating to do all the work and not have it fit.

    That drives me crazy. Fortunately Lane Bryant has one that I love, they've been selling them for at least 10 years and the style/design/fit has not changed at all.
