I'm so excited to announce that my BRA KITS are up on Etsy! and available for purchase!!
YAY!! and to celebrate every bra kit comes with a FREE PAIR OF WIRES!!!
This has been quite a while in the making, and it's still just the start! :)
So let me tell you a little bit more about these kits!
The main feature in these kits is this lovely no-stretch knit for cups!
You may remember the red bra that I made a few weeks ago...
When I said I had a beautiful new fabric that I was testing out..
Well I can honestly say that I've hardly taken this bra off since I made it. It is by far the most comfortable and favourite bra that I own! (shhhh.. don't tell my other bras!)
So I'm very excited that I can bring this fabric to you! YAY Comfortable bras for all!
Let me tell you a little more about this fabric! It is a lightweight, knit fabric with NO stretch! Perfect for making bras!
It's very breathable, and has wicking properties (who doesn't want that in a bra!) and is really smooth against the skin! And I find that it has just enough 'give' to be really nice and smooth in the cups, unlike some other super-rigid fabrics.
It doesn't have quite the super-duper support and rigidity of fabrics like duoplex, or completely rigid embroidered lace, but it is very light and comfortable!
And now I found it in four other colours! I don't just have the red but also: Pink, Raspberry, Chartreuse & Blue!
(sorry if the colours seem a little off- you wouldn't believe the problems I had trying to white balance these! I tried to make them as colour accurate as possible!)
Here is a behind the scenes photo where you can see them all together!
But besides this fabric- I wanted to make sure that these kits have everything that you need to make a bra! Because I know how hard it is to source out all the little pieces!
They also include:
- Powernet - .5m X .38m (or 20" X 15") Perfect if you want to make a regular OR racer back!
- 15 denier- in a lovely nude colour for lining the bridge for extra stability (although I include enough to line the cups if you like!
Along with those fabrics I offer two sizes of findings!
For the SMALL range of findings kits I include:
- 3 m of 3/8" plush back elastics (for top and bottom band)
- 1 m of 1/2" strap elastic
- 0.8 m of channelling
- 1 set of 1/2" sliders & rings (in black, silver or gold)
- 1 set of Hook & Eyes (2X3)
** These come in White, Black & Red! **
And for the LARGE range of findings kits I include:
- 1.2 m of 3/4" plush back elastics (for bottom band)
- 2 m of 3/8" plush back elastic (for top band)
- 1 m of 3/4" strap elastic
- 0.8 m of channelling
- 1 set of 3/4" sliders & rings (in silver or black)
- 1 set of Hook & Eyes (3X3)
** Currently these are only available in white***
I wanted to give two size ranges for the findings because everyone has different needs and wants when it comes to their elastics and findings! Personally I find myself grabbing for the smaller range for some bra styles and often the larger range for bralettes! (I mean, who doesn't love a 3/4" strap!)
I don't have the findings kits up separately right now, they are soon to come!
And of course I'm offering a FREE pair of wires with every bra kit!! YAY!! You simply need to make a comment on the purchase of what size and style you want!
Taken Straight from Etsy!:
I also have extra sliders and rings up for purchase :)
I'm so excited to be able to spread the love of bra-making and all my favourite things with all of you! And I promise this is just the start!
Let me know if you have any questions about the kits or anything else!
