Over the course of this two-day workshop students learn how to fit and sew their own custom foam cup underwire bra using the Orange Lingerie Boylston bra sewing pattern. To get the best fitting garment, Norma fits each student and teaches them how to customize the fit of their garment.

About the Students:

Students should have intermediate level sewing skills as evidenced by the ability to make a button down shirt or similar on their own.

Please note: There are NO refunds or store credit given at any time for classes with out of town instructors and special guest instructors. Your seat may be transferred to a friend if you cannot attend. Ages 18+

About the Pattern:

The Boylston bra first appeared in an article that Norma wrote for Threads Magazine (Issue #174 subscription required to read article). This pattern is incredibly versatile allowing you to make your own custom foam bra, standard cut-and-sew bra or even bikini top.

The Boylston bra is a versatile and supportive full frame underwire bra for everyday featuring:

  • A three piece, demi cup that allows for shaping and the ability to play with prints and color combinations;
  • A comfortable fabric strap that creates a flattering neckline;
  • A design that is compatible for use with cut-and-sew foam, luxury linings and a variety of trim options; and
  • A size range of 30A to 40J.

      About the Materials:

      Your class fee includes the Boylston bra sewing pattern, 15 hours of instruction, use of sewing machines and basics notions, lunch on both days of the workshop, and water and snacks throughout the weekend.

      Bra making requires specialty materials. Your email address will be shared with your instructor so you can purchase a bra making kit directly from Norma prior to class. Your purchased student kit will contain all materials and notions (except thread) to make two bras. An additional supply list will be emailed to students in January 2019.

      About the Instructor:

      Norma Loehr, founder and creative director of Orange Lingerie, started making custom bras in 2010. In 2013, she published her book "Demystifying Bra Fitting and Construction" and started releasing lingerie sewing patterns shortly thereafter as part of her company's mission to give home sewists the ability to make their own beautiful and professional looking lingerie.

      Ages 18+
