Over the last 5 years I have taught hundreds of sewists how to fit and sew their own custom Marlborough bra in our classic two-day bra making workshop. With a mission to get every sewist making their own beautiful and professional looking lingerie, I feel like with every workshop I move Orange Lingerie one step closer to fulfilling that goal!
As you may know, our classic two-day in-person workshop is exclusively focused on teaching the skills to fit and sew the Marlborough bra (you can read more about this workshop here and here). Of course, there are SO many more styles, materials AND techniques that I want to teach students. That is why I am launching our Boylston bra making workshop!
In our new two-day, in-person workshop, I am teaching sewists how to make their own custom fit Boylston bra! The Boylston bra is our three piece, demi cup bra that uses a fabric strap to create a super flattering neckline. I actually first wrote about his bra in Threads Issue #174 (subscription required to access article) back in 2014(!!)
To teach as many techniques as possible, in this new workshop we will be using cut-and-sew foam to make the bra cups. Using foam makes it easy to use a wider variety of materials for bra making and even allows for an easy conversion to a beautifully supportive bikini top! Like the Marlborough bra, the Boylston bra is also available in cup sizes A to J for band sizes 30 to 40 (plus the sister sizes) to accommodate as many people as possible.
You can join me for one of our new Boylston bra workshops this Spring:
May 18-19, 2019 at Pintuck & Purl in North Hampton, NH (a one-hour drive from Boston).
June 15-16, 2019 at Three Little Birds Sewing Co. in Hyattsville, MD (Washington D.C. area).
If you would like to learn the ins and outs of the Marlborough bra, there are still a few seats for our classic workshop at Drop, Forge & Tool in Hudson, NY, April 13-14, 2019.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon!
