    Beautiful bras! :-D

    I have long been a fan of Kwik Sew patterns. She carries intimate wear, including bras.

    In the 1990s and earlier you could get tricot galore in stores similar to Hancock's and JoAnn's and the lingere elastic. :-D

    Wherever did you find your pattern?
    I've been looking for a pattern for years. My mother used one to make her bras and it's gotten lost over the years.

    Thank you in advance (TIA)

    I just noticed the one in Columbus. That's not to far from me, about 2 hours. I wouldn't mind going for a review and to see if there are any new techniques.

    If there was a class offered around here on bra making, I'd be the first in line! Yours are awesome and they look soooo comfy.

    About a month ago there was a guy demonstrating bra making...and at first I thought he was doing a OBW. As we watched we noticed that he wasnt' ironing the fabric before cutting it and teased him about it...and the older lady with him laughed - saying that she keeps pointing that out also! His finished products were really colorful being that he was using yardage we would use in quilting.

    You have a lot of talent to make those up! :thumbup:

    Thank you ladies for all your encouraging comments.
    To those that have sent me a PM, thank you.
    However, I can not answer all your questions. My very strong suggestion is to contact NeedleNookFabrics 316-684-3812. They are very pleasant to work with.
    Sewing to me comes very easy, without tooting my own horn, I've never found anything I could not make. However, only you know your skills. By contacting NNF they can advise you about making bras and/or buying supplies from them.
    Again, as I have stated several times through this thread, fit is the most important part of bra making/fitting. NNF can advise you about that also.
    I paid about $200 for my class it was a two day class and feel it would not be fair to the owner of this product to "try" and teach her technique though a tute. Also it would be a very, very long tute.
    Again, thank you for looking at my thread. It is a wonderful compliment for each of you to acknowledge my skill.
