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

The Madalynne Girl: Anna Fowler

More than I think she knows, Anna has given me a new wave of confidence. We are both newbies at Anthropologie’s Rittenhouse location; it was August that we started working there. Last week, the Nina Set arrived at our store. Although associates were thanking and congratulating me about the release, I hadn’t seen anyone try it on, wear it

So Good, It Was Scary: Bra Making with Madalynne Recap

Almost as fun as the bra workshops themselves – keyword is almost – is the prepping that goes into it. Finding and writing the perfect thank you cards, figuring out the best flavor chocolate to go into goodie bags, sourcing fabric and trims to go along with the theme, and dreaming up the perfect table scape that will

Up until this point, I’ve only shown alterations/variations for the 8228 bralette pattern (see below for links), one of the two lingerie patterns I released with Simplicity in August. Don’t get the impression that I have anything against you underwires ladies! Yes, it’s no secret that as a 32B, I prefer soft over underwire bras

Hi sewing peeps! Today, I’m sharing another tutorial for the Madalynne x Simplicity collaboration. If you missed the first three, scroll down to the bottom of this post for links. This tutorial is inspired by a Free People design and is for the 8228 halter style (view A). I was browsing the FP website for inspiration when

Bra Making with Madalynne: Halter Bralette

I’ve been lucky in that at almost every workshop, there is a “character” who makes the whole class. You know the saying, “a bad egg can spoil the batch”? In this case, the opposite is true. At yesterday’s workshop, this “character” was Donnelle. I’ve know him for only a short while. We met two weeks ago when he started

Just when you thought everything from the Madalynne X Simplicity lingerie line was released, I have more! Muahaha… In July, I posted a sneak peek hinting that a video tutorial would accompany the patterns. Well, it’s here! I am a visual learner and absorb information best by watching someone first, then attempting it myself after. So, although I hope this short video
