Learn to Sew Your Own Bras
Learn the techniques in sewing your own bras with
Linda Jobson's online bra making tutorials.
Online Bra Making Classes
Linda’s Lingerie online bra making workshop is designed for the experienced sewer who wants to learn the skill of bra making, which essentially is quite easy. Making your own bra is just like a jigsaw puzzle, putting the pieces together and finishing off the edges.
Bras can be sewn on your normal domestic sewing machine, using a straight stitch, a zigzag stitch, and multiple zigzag stitch. An overlocker is not necessary. You will need Ball Point or Stretch Needles, size 90/14 is my recommendation, especially when sewing the elastic.
The Bra Making Workshop is most suited to experienced sewers. This means you should be able to sew a zip into a garment, a waistband, a sleeve, etc.
You will need to purchase a pattern and kit to complete the Bra Making Workshop. I highly recommend buying a bra making kit from Booby Traps in Sydney. You can buy their kits online at www.boobytraps.com.au
