Fall Education Event – Monica Bravo

Register now! September 16-17 will be our 2017 Fall Educational Event with Monica Bravo from BravoBella Bras. Think sewing your own lingerie is complicated or a waste of time? Think again! Come join us for an introduction into sewing lingerie that’s both gorgeous AND fits you like a glove.

In Saturday’s lecture, “Sewing Lingerie,” Monica will discuss techniques for sewing lingerie, as well as the types of fabrics, notions and elastic application used. While focused on lingerie, her techniques can be applied to various garments. She will also do a pattern analysis for panties and camisoles, explaining how to match the patterns to different body types.

Space is limited to 60 people. Lunch will be provided.
