Darted bra with wires

Recently, I took a one-week course at the London College of Fashion: Structured Bra Making. The course focused on cutting and constructing three types of bra: a darted wired bra, a padded wired bra and a non-wired lace bra. It did not include information about taking measurements and fitting.

The darted bra was the one that fitted me like a glove. I plan to make more bras of similar style in the future.

You can read more details about my course and to see two other bras on my blog

    Beautiful! Great to know you have a good fit too.

    You can slow down an industrial by playing with the presser foot tension, switching out the standard pulley for a smaller one, or by switching out the clutch motor for a servo. But yes, they are quite speedy when you first start out and you’re used to the gentle acceleration of a domestic :)

      Since we worked with many machines, each of them had its own level of sensitivity. Also some of them had the clutch motor and some – servo. But it was a great learning experience and now I feel like my home sewing machine is too slow :)
