Ever since I launched Orange Lingerie (nearly 4 years ago!) I have been drafting bra patterns to fit individual clients and to make small batches of ready-to-wear lingerie for local designer markets. When it came time to edit and test my book Demystifying Bra Fitting and Construction I decided that I needed to use the materials my readers would have access to so I used a variety commercially available bra patterns to run through the techniques in my book.
As I worked with commercial patterns I saw room for innovation and a different point of view so I started to think about producing my patterns for those who wanted to sew my designs. As readers of my book and my blog started asking more about Orange Lingerie patterns, the thought really took hold.
I have mentioned this to a few of you but here is the formal announcement: I am going to start making my lingerie patterns available! I still have work to do to get everything ready for the release of the first pattern but soon you will be able to purchase Orange Lingerie sewing patterns!
Now back to work!
