Thanks Patty! It can seem daunting at first several types of fabrics, elastics, wires, hooks, etc. all in one project. But the sewing part isn't really that complicated or overly tricky, just go step by step and before you know it you've got a bra! Do expect to make a couple at first before you're completely happy, both for fitting and for the sewing. Starting with a kit can make gathering all the bits a little easier as well. I originally took a class through my local ASG Anne St. Clair held a workshop near me and I learned a lot in a weekend. It was really helpful and we were also able to purchase a kit (albeit a rather plain-Jane one) that had everything we needed to make 3 bras. After making those 3 basic bras, I felt I could move on to using more exciting fabrics, laces etc. as well as using different patterns. It is easy to get obsessed with bra-making it's a lot of fun!
