Guess what?! The Facebook group Natasha and I started in February – Bra Making Forum – reached 500 members! Woot woot! We are thrilled with the way the group has evolved. Questions, comments and links are posted daily and the women are not afraid to speak up. I have learned so much from what others are making. As a thank you, Natasha is offering one reader 3 yards of the teal lace (pictured above). I can testify to its quality. I used it to make my first Watson (unblogged) as well as this thong. It’s a double scallop, galloon stretch lace. The color is white with hints of aqua, teal and green and it’s 5 1/2″ wide. You can see more photos here. Point blank – it’s divine!

    The bra making forum is one of the highlights of my Facebook feed! I’d love to make something out of this gorgeous lace, I think Natasha’s range is beautiful but have exhausted my sewing budget for the next couple of months (mostly in creating lingerie!). But boy are her selections tempting!

    I have been reading your site for a while now – I like the bras you make – they are pretty and serviceable – the best combination. As I need an underwire I appreciate particularly those you show. The white and teal lace is lovely and falls into colors I love and that love me! I liked both facebook pages.

    I’ve already been the lucky winner of Maddie’s beautiful photography prints, so I’m not officially entering this giveaway. Just wanted to mention that I have also used ArteCrafts’ wide stretch lace trim (see what I did with it here: http://mybratelier.com/2015/04/10/size-matters-when-thongs-go-wrong/), and it’s really top-quality, as are all Natasha’s bra-making materials. Good luck, everyone!

    Good Morning! I “liked” both FB pages… also am hoping to be accepted into your bra making group. I am so interested in making my own bras, but every time I attempt to source the fabric and findings I discover that all kits are sold out. 🙁 I will NOT give up, though… due to my bra size a Watson won’t work… I do have the Marlborough pattern that I am so anxious to make.

    Wishing everyone luck!
