Beginner Kits - now with more fabric!

Here is a kit specifically tailored for beginner bra makers that contains standard materials which work for a number of the popular bra sewing patterns.  You could try the 'Classic' or 'Shelley' by Pin Up Girls, the 'Harriet' by Cloth Habit or a 'Marlborough' by Orange Lingerie

We've designed this kit to help demystify some of the questions that occur when you first try bra-making.  A card is included in the kit that labels the type of fabrics and elastics along with their purpose so you can easily identify what is in the kit and how to use it.

Each fabric is labelled with the cutting direction / direction of greatest stretch.

The kit contains a sample set of 3 x underwires.  Choose your underwire size based on the measuring instructions in the pattern and add the size as a note to your order.  You will receive this size plus the size above and below so you can choose the best fit.  The two underwire sets that you don't use can be returned and exchanged for the correct wire size.  By default the underwire style that is included will be a regular wire, if you would prefer a different style wire then please also add this as a note.

The kits are based on the colours of the duoplex and the other materials and findings are all in the same colourway meaning you don't have to worry about changing thread colours while sewing.

The kits are available as either 12mm or 19mm wide elastics - your pattern will let you know which size to choose based on your measurements.
