Learn skills needed for sewing professional looking performance / activewear in this sportsbra class. Sportsbras are for any body type, size and shape. They start with a great pattern. Then we can customize to have removable cups, princess seams for contour, fabrics that support and even adjustable straps. Sportsbras are as beautiful as traditional bras but much more versatile.
In this class we will begin with a basic sportsbra pattern and use our personal body measurements to choose a pattern size. We will then compare pattern specifics to our personal measurements and apply this information to alter the pattern to a custom fit. We will discuss the different styles for the front, back, straps and closures for sportsbras. We will choose and prepare the fabrics to cut out our pieces. We will use such machines as straight stitch, overlock machine (serger), and optional coverstitch; however you can do everything with a machine that has a straight and zigzag stitch, only. Learn such techniques as elastic application, topstitching, enclosed seams , managing stretch fabrics to make your perfect sportsbra that looks and feels like it came from a high end activewear producer (that will be you)!
Straight & Zigzag machine (overlock / serger is very helpful too)
