Contents and Structure

Simplifying the mystery of bra making, you'll learn how to cut out and construct a series of structured bras. These will include: a non-wired full cup bra, an under-wired padded bra and a non-padded darted bra. You'll be using industrial machines on the course, but everything you learn can be done on a domestic sewing machine at home. We'll demonstrate how to take a pattern from a bought bra to create your own size pattern, and you'll take home three completed bras.
