Boob Camp Bra-Making Class (5 days)

Overview

Boob Camp Bra-Making Class (5 days)

Imagine 5 whole days making bras, bras, and more bras! At the Boob Camp Bra-Making Class, you will make many different styles of bras based on your bra pattern from the beginner class. You’ll learn to draft a partial band bra, a bra using lace, a bra with power bars, and a Shelley Bra (or you may wish to make a Foam Cup Bra!) Imagine – sewing for yourself without interruption all week!

Machines available for rent for students who do not wish to bring their own machine. Machine rental is $50 for the 5 days.

We want all students to have the best bra-making experience possible, so it is imperative that you know how to sew before you come to any of our classes. If you are comfortable setting in a sleeve without instructions in front of you, you can sew a bra! If you need to brush up on your sewing skills, please consider doing that before you register for this class! Thank you for understanding.

$600.00 CAD

Please note: 

• Class begins at 10 am and ends at 4:00 pm. Doors open at 9:30 am.
• Bring your lunch or you can buy lunch out. We have a fridge, sink and microwave in our classroom kitchen.

What you get in the class

You get 5 whole days of lessons of making bras for yourself under the watchful eye of our patient and qualified instructor. You can make virtually anything you want in Boob Camp.

Boob Camp is all about you. Sew until your heart is content with guidance and supervision that will you have you sewing your best!

Skill Level

Intermediate.

While bra sewing is not difficult it does require a certain amount of skill. We like to say “if you can set in a sleeve you can make a bra.”

Lesson Plan

Monday

You start your time at Boob Camp by being professionally fitted by our very own Fairy Bra Mother, Beverly Johnson. She will fit you into her sample bras, then make a note of the changes she sees that need to be made to the pattern. She and the class instructor, Denise, will alter the pattern so it fits you like a glove. Once the pattern has been altered, you can start to cut it out. In the afternoon, you will be sewing your first bra!

If you have already made a bra, then in Boob Camp, you will pick up where you left off. You can bring in pictures of what you would like to make, or we can give you suggestions of what you might like to sew this week. Either way, you will go home with a new bra wardrobe.

Call (905) 538-1396 to reserve your spot.

Tuesday

On Tuesday, the fun is still just beginning. You are going to continue to make your first bra, by sewing on the elastics, channeling and finally the hardware. Once the bra is complete, you’re going to try it onand admire your fine work. Then it is time to choose your second bra colour and bra style. Will you want a partial band bra, or a Classic with a butterfly lace accent? You might want power bars or a Shelley bra. Who knows? Whatever you choose, you can start work on it as soon as you like.

Call (905) 538-1396 to reserve your spot.

Wednesday

We are half-way through the week on Wednesday and your second bra is coming along nicely. You will be learning new techniques on your second bra, or you may be peeking at your table-mate’s bras to see what she is working on. In any case, you will be meeting new friends and sharing ideas with fellow enthusiasts.

Call (905) 538-1396 to reserve your spot.

Thursday

The week is now winding down, but not your enthusiasm for what you are learning here. Your excitement over all the new styles to create is bubbling over, and you can’t wait to start on another bra. Will you make a long line? Or is a full-on lace bra your cup of tea? Perhaps you will try a bralette this time. Whatever you choose, your classmates are sure to be as enthused as you are.

Call (905) 538-1396 to reserve your spot.

Friday

You cannot believe it is Friday already, your last day at Boob Camp. You and your new friends may exchange email addresses or other contact info, but only if you want to. We are going to take pictures of the bras you’ve made for our Digital Fashion Show on our blog, The Fairy Bra Mother. You don’t have to model the bras you’ve made (unless you want to!) but a lot of women would love to see the creations you’ve made at Boob Camp this week!
