One of the hardest parts when patterning bras is making sure all the pieces matched up. Because 1/8″ can be the difference between a bra fitting and not fitting, it’s so important that all seams equal. Do you know how many times I had to measure and remeasure in order to get all the pieces to be the same? And do you know how much time that took? Plus, with a dinky measuring tape, the measurements weren’t that accurate – I was never sure if I was correct or not. A solution came when I came across Claire’s shop, SACurve. Holy smokes, kids. Do you remember the Barbie doll aisle in Toy R’ Us? Claire’s shop was just like that.
Claire was kind enough to send me SA Measuring Wheel, which measures armholes, necklines, crotches, or any curved line, and the 3/8th Mini Ruler and 3/8 Pattern drafter, which are designed to add, change, or mark the seam allowance location quickly and accurately. I was going to test the rulers and post a review, but Amy beat me to the punch and probably did a better job than I ever would (awesome job, Amy!), so hop on over to her blog to see the rulers in action.
As a giveaway, Claire is offering a mini and pattern drafter ruler and a SA Measuring Wheel! all you have to do is write in the comments below your contact information and how you would use these rulers. Contest opens immediately and will close on October 31st. Also, contest in open internationally. Good luck!
