Orange Lingerie in the Studio


I didn’t just move my home across the country, I also moved my work into its own separate studio! One thing about moving that I discovered is that it makes you look at things from a different perspective. It is a happy side effect that the move made me take a fresh look at my work.

Preparing to launch a line of lingerie sewing patterns, over the Summer I designed, drafted and graded my first pattern release. I was all set to move on to the next steps of the process when I learned we were moving to Boston. After we set up our home and my new studio last month, I reviewed my work plan and realized that instead of continuing to complete the original designs, I should be creating what the readers of my book are actually asking for: a really great bra pattern. So in case you were wondering, yes, I really am listening!

I have been solely focused on creating a sewing pattern for a bra that incorporates the style lines and features that I found consistently produced the most flattering fit and support for my custom clients. With the change in plans, the pattern won’t be available until next year but I promise it is worth waiting for!

    Ohhhhhh! I can hardly wait. I am not too crazy about most of the bra patterns out there! Some are not up to date and others lack good pattern drafting and directions. I love your book and thus have great enthusiasm for the upcoming patterns.

    Will the pattern still be a bralet [which I believe was your original plan] or full-coverage bra? I have to be honest and confess that as a ho-ho-hum lady of “mature” years I go for the latter.

      Hi Mariel,
      I will be teaching classes structured around my pattern in 2014 in the Boston area! I’ll be sure to post dates and info on the site.
