    I don’t know how much experience you have with altering patterns, it would be very difficult to make it work with a fabric that doesn’t stretch. If you’re just starting with making clothing, I woul…

    Normal bias tape will not work, stretch bias tape would work, but it’s more difficult than using elastic.
    If you have anything stretchy that would make a nice combination you could cut strips of th…

    It depends on the pattern, but it’s very likely that it will be very difficult. Which pattern is it? If the pattern has no bust darts and has to fit close to the body it will be very difficult to g…

    I had this problem too when I still bought patterns. The problem is that sometimes there is an enormous amount of ease in the patterns. Especially the big 4 pattern companies are known for that. I …

    fiefje commented on the forum topic English Dart

    I have never heard of that term either. I know that in Dutch we call a French seam an English seam. If your pattern instructions are not in English, or poorly translated to English from another lan…

    fiefje commented on the forum topic Can anybody recommend any lingerie books?

    I looked a Dutch lingerie making forum and this is what I found for you.

    When it comes to bras, “The Bra-makers Manual” from Beverly Johnson seems to be a very good book. When it comes to other li…

    Your bra looks great.
    Getting the fit right always takes some trial and error. It is possible to learn and teach yourself (a good book helps a lot), but it does take a lot longer than 8 weeks.

    When I get my life back on track, I’ll try to make a sizing chart for my bra patterns that you can download.

    I have some useful links for making lingerie.

    www.elingeria.de sells just about anything you need for making lingerie, including wires. You will probably need heavy quality wires in size 13 or 14….

    I write the sizes down like this: “80/36/14 D”
    which means it’s an 80 D in European sizes, 36 D in UK sizes and 14 D in Australian sizes.
    The easiest way to determine your size is measuring right u…

    I drafted patterns in 75L and 75M. The chance that either of them is a perfect fit is small. Even people with an “easy” or “average” size usually make several bras before they have one that fits.
    I…

    fiefje commented on the forum topic How to apply these elastics

    Are 5 and 6 hollow and not very stretcy? They look a bit like casing for bra wires.
    The easiest way to attach elastic 3 is first sew it on with a tripple zigzag with the “picots” (as they’re called…

    fiefje commented on the forum topic Bra making

    You can use a normal bra pattern and add a layer of padding as lining. You cut the padding without seam allowance and you use a flat seam between the pieces of padding.

    Yes, there is a difference in the patterns. They are all different sizes. So you won’t need all of the patterns. They are the same patterns that used to be on the old site. I had to post them again…
