Bra Making With Madalynne Recap: April 2016

how to sew a bra

Seriously cannot believe it. The seventh Bra Making with Madalynne Workhop is won and done. Seven if you count the panty party/bridal shower I hosted. Ack! Still hate that word.

Yesterday was truly unforgettable. The largest yet, this class brought students from all over. Elyse traveled from Minneapolis to attend, and Carla came from Florida. She actually came from my hometown, Ft. Lauderdale! A first for her, Carla got to see snow. Yes, snow in April! Ying was also at the class, and it was soooo great seeing her. The highlight of the day, other than the me-made bras obviously, was the confetti cake. Seriously, doesn’t it look dee-lish? The theme of the class was dots, dots of all shapes and sizes, so it was a perfectly fitting treat. Lisa Singer, a seriously talented lady who offers baking and signage services, made it. As you can see, most students ate it while wearing their finished bras. Too funny! Most students sewed their bras using Spiegel’s new 60609 machine and loved using it – its stitch quality, the way it handled stretch fabrics and the ability to keep their phone charged throughout the day (link to my review).

A huge thank you goes out to the sponsors and people who made yesterday possibly + helped me throughout the week. Yesterday WAS NOT the work of a one woman show. So, to all you, merci boucoup!

    It was such a great workshop Maddie!!!!! Thank you for all you taught us. I’ve worn my completed bra and have bought material to make more from both the Bra Making Supplies and Tailor Made Shop. I was excited that I was able to make a bra that fit, despite being 7 months pregnant. It was a well planned out workshop, well worth the price, and that CAKE was RIDICULOUS! YUMMMMMMM.
