Bra and Knicker Sewing Inspiration!

Lingerie Sewing Month Logo

There are so many bloggers making great lingerie these days! If you are looking for inspiration, here are some of my favourites to check out.

  • OhhhLulu sells handmade lingerie and PDF patterns – plus she’s from a small town just an hour and a half from me!
  • Emerald Erin is also from Southern Ontario – she’s been sewing a bra a week since the winter, and every single one is gorgeous!
  • You can also see some of Erin’s sewing on the Bra Maker’s Supply blog, and get tips and tricks from Beverly Johnson – or take one of Beverly’s two Craftsy courses about bramaking!
  • Andie from Sew Pretty in Pink and Leah from Is It Really Sew Strange both took the bra-making course at Bra Maker’s Supply, and now they make fabulous bras. Particularly inspiring if you have a large bust!
  • One Two more Canadian links: Tasia from Sewaholic and Heather from Closet Case Files have blogged some great bras this year!
  • On the other side of the world, Novita (Very Purple Person) has a whole range of posts on finished bras, pattern reviews and tutorials.
  • Madalynne and Handmade by Carolyn make lovely delicate things…
  • Anne, the Clothing Engineer, is amazingly detail-oriented, and gives great reviews of the bra-making kits she buys online.
  • Cloth Habit and Orange Lingerie sell patterns and are fabulous sources of professional knowledge!

In the comments, please share your own inspiration – other bloggers, RTW, or pinterest boards!

  1. Those are fab suggestions for inspiration and patterns Gillian! I visit all of those regularly for inspiration, but also to just ogle the pretty makes :D. I credit Amy of ClothHabit for starting me off on the bra / lingerie making fun with her sewalong a couple years or so ago.

    MakeBra has some great patterns too: http://www.makebra.com/products-page/lingerie-patterns/

    For us small band / large cup gals, Michelle has lots of inspiration on her blog, Michelle’s Creations https://eforshopping.wordpress.com/

  2. I would love to make a bra but don’t think that they will ever be a pattern big enough for me. I have made some nice lingerie from two Jill Salen Books; one on corsets and one on vintage lingerie. You have to scale up and re-size the patterns from the book but they go together really well. Xx

  3. I am so excited to be doing my first sewcialist project! I was already planning on undies and a bralette this month so hopefully I will complete the projects in time to share with you all! So exciting! ❤
