I am super excited to announce the launch of bra kits to the Elise Patterns website! I have been working super hard on tracking down the best materials to put together in my bra kits. (Honestly, I never knew how time-consuming this process would be!).
As somebody that is super passionate about making lingerie and bras, I’ve always felt a bit let down by what’s available to the home sewer and I really hope to be able to change that.
I don’t want my bras to look cheap or look like they won’t last more than 1 wash. As a home bra maker, I’ve always wanted to be able to make my bras with the same materials that are available to commercial manufacturers and passionately believe that better quality haberdashery and materials should be available for people who want to make their own bras.
I have a couple of different bra kits available. All of the trims/bra findings are in black. You can choose from 5 different coloured laces to match or contrast with the black trimmings. If you don’t fancy the leaf print lace (it is seriously lovely though!) you can opt to buy the kits without lace as well.
I’ve separated the bra kits into two different sizes – one for smaller cup sizes and one for larger cup sizes. What’s the difference? Well, the larger cup size kits have wider elastics and a wider hook and eye fastening at the back because it gives more support. (The sizing is only a suggestion as some people prefer wider elastics/hook and eyes as they can be more comfortable.)
Fancy trying your hand at bra making? Get your kit here. The smaller sized kits are available for order today and the larger cup sized bra kits are available for pre-order today with delivery from next week.
Keep tuned – I’m hoping to announce another new pattern soon…. (this one’s taken a bit longer as I have been having artwork done for it!).
