YEAH BRA

Today and yesterday I did the Bra Making Short Course at Tafe in the city. The course is run by the lovely Jennifer Nicholls. Aside from running the short course, Jennifer specialises in making made to measure bras and swimwear as well as mastectomy bras, and was ALSO the recipient of the AusIndustry TCF grant for the development of a compression mastectomy bra that is currently being trialled and tested at the Flinders University. She definitely knows bras, no doubt about that.

It should also be mentioned that the patterns and kits used in class come from a company in New South Wales called Booby Traps, from which pretty much all the components can be ordered from.

If any of you out there are interested in bra making, I would HIGHLY recommend doing this short course. It's only 2 days long, you get given patterns that you customize and alter to your size and desired style, comprehensive notes, materials, and by the end of it you will have a perfect fitting bra that you've made yourself!

Here are a few quick pics of the bra I finished today... it's all a white "power-net" mesh aside from the top of the cups and the centre-front.
