Shelley Designer Bra Class (1 day)

Overview

Shelley Designer Bra Class (1 day)

At the Shelley Designer Bra Class, we use your bra pattern from any of the beginner classes to draft the pattern for this bra – inspired by a $200 designer bra from Europe. We made it better and we make it to fit you. It has several features to make the bra supportive and just drop-dead gorgeous, including the four-piece cup, a lace upper cup and a power bra innovation that urges the girls forward. We’ve made this bra many times and it looks good on everybody. You need to have taken a beginner bra class and bring your pattern with you.

Please note:

• Class begins at 10 am and ends at 4:30 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

In the Shelley class, you don’t get a pattern because we are going to draft the pattern from your well-fitting bra pattern (you know the one you made in the Beginner Bra 101 class). However you do get a kit containing all the fabrics, lace and the findings and hardware you need to complete the Shelly in class. You even get the wires if you wear them.

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.” You do need to bring your bra pattern with you to this class so we can change it into the Shelley pattern.

Lesson Plan

Morning

We start the Shelley class by showing you some of the wonderful Shelley bras we have in our collection. You’ll see what elements of design make the Shelly one of the nicest bras you will ever wear. You’ll learn to change your Classic Bra pattern you fitted in a beginner bra class into a Shelley. You’ll learn about lace and suitable fabrics as you go along. Then you can choose the fabric and lace combinations from our incredible selection. Once you cut out the fabric as assemble the rest of the findings, you can start sewing!

Afternoon

In the afternoon, you’ll be sewing your Shelley cups, making sure you mirror or balance the lace you’ve chosen. Then you will assemble the cups and sew them into the frame. Add the straps, and then you can start sewing on the elastics, and the channeling. This should not prove difficult for you as it is the same construction we did in the beginner bra class. Once the elastics are applied, we can apply the hooks and eyes and slide in the wires. You new Shelley is ready to be shown off!
