Meet Beverly Johnson, fairy bra-mother and sewing expert, and get started with techniques for adding beautiful lace edging to bras, working with your own well-fitting bra pattern. You’ll learn to mirror and place lace, create a curved lace edge, and make stitch-and-flip linings for lace cups.
Lace on Band & Bridge (21:27)
Add lace to bra bridges and bands for luxurious feminine looks. Beverly begins by teaching how to use a scalloped- edge lace on a partial- or full-band bra, then position lace on the outsides of bra cups.
Cut & Sew Foam Cups (30:29)
If you’d like to add comfortable, supportive foam cups to your bra-making skills, follow Beverly’s tips and techniques for using cut-and-sew foam to create cups that fit and flatter. You’ll learn to modify your pattern, then construct and cover the foam.
Demi & Balconette Cups With Cut & Sew Foam (24:44)
Cut-and-sew foam cups are perfect for two fashionable bra styles: the balconette and the demi-cup. Discover how to draft patterns for style changes and add beautiful lace that is darted but not seamed for graceful shaping.
Pre-Formed Foam Cups (22:00)
Bras with pre-formed foam cups are a favorite of many women, and now you can learn to use these cups in your bras. You’ll learn the types of foam cups and how to fit them, along with the nuances of correct cup orientation. Finally, Beverly will help you modify your bra pattern to accept foam cups.
Seamless Covers for Pre-Formed Cups (27:33)
You’ll want to cover those pre-formed foam cups with fabric for a lovely appearance. Learn about the right fabrics to choose, how to stretch the fabric over the cup without wrinkles, and finish the edges to complete your unique and original foam-cup bra.
After years of sewing her own dance costumes and swimwear, Beverly Johnson began teaching bra making in 1995. She has shared her immense knowledge of techniques for sewing bras, swimwear and intimate apparel ever since. Beverly is the owner of Bra-Makers Supply, which carries specialty patterns, fabric and findings. Her books include “Make and Fit Swimwear” and two volumes of “The Bra-Maker’s Manual,” which have become textbooks in some fashion schools.
