At each and every bra workshop, details count. Details, details, details. The fabric and trims, the food, the decor – I try as much as I can to have it all “go”. Included in that are the goody bags. No party – and my workshops ARE a party – would be complete without a goody bag. Amirite or amirite?

A ‘Continental’ Bra Making with Madalynne Workshop

bra-making-madalynne-april-100

Excuse me while I step onto my soapbox… Last Saturday was the 16th Bra Making with Madalynne workshop. Sixteen, woot woot! It was a ‘Continental’ Class with folks traveling from Virginia, Florida, Texas and California to attend. I’m blushing 🙂 Stepping off my soap box now… At the beginning of the day, students are usually quiet.

I am reminding myself of my mother today when she would tell me to wash my face and brush my teeth every night. Thanks ma! Because of her nightly reminders, I have a pretty decent complexion and half pearly whites as I creep up to 30-years-old. Yikes! So spring has sprung. That’s right y’all, time to refresh.

Eep! Crotch Linings Explained

Crotch lining is like the word moist. For some, it’s NBD to say. For others, let’s just say it doesn’t roll off the tip of their tongue mellifluously. I think it’s better than saying genital lining, don’t you think? Perspective people! It’s all about perspective. Crotch linings are a necessary component of undies, however, they aren’t discussed much.

What I Made: Sawyer (Madalynne X Simplicity 8229 Remix)

I know, I know, I sound like a broken record in every introduction of a ‘What I Made’ post. I said it at the beginning of Amari, that fabulously flared burnt orange bodysuit, and I’ll say it again. I don’t know how the heck I squeezed out this me-made. Unlike Amari, this number wasn’t a spontaneous make. Oh

Valentine’s Day holds a special place in my heart. Not because of the flowers, chocolates and other sweets that are all around, but because it was Valentine’s Day weekend many moons ago that I hosted my first bra workshop. If someone told me then that today, I’d be teaching sewing out of my own studio, designing

The Bra Recyclers + Madalynne Intimates

There are many percentages about how many women wear the wrong size bra. My exact statistic, which I’ve thoroughly and scientifically tested over and over, is A LOT. Here’s another percentage to throw at you – the number of women who have bras laying around in their drawers, unworn because it doesn’t fit, is even higher. Like a lot, a

It was almost 2 years ago that I hosted my first Bra Making with Madalynne workshop. If somebody told me then that 24 months later, I’d still be hosting them, I would not have believe them. No way in h**l! It’s been an incredible 2 years of teaching. Incredible. Sewing is a solitary habit and through teaching, I
