Who is teaching in February…
This beautiful white underwire bra was made by a student in our Bra Making Course.
In our course students learn to make a bra that has multiple cup pattern pieces (this means more support), wires, hooks and eyes, adjustable straps and full (wider) band. We provide details of wonderful suppliers for gorgeous bra fabrics and laces during booking and advise of the pattern that students need to purchase.
To accommodate different skill levels, you can take this course at an intermediate or advanced level!
- Advanced students will make a toile bra first and learn how to undertake pattern adjustments before cutting into their fabulous fabric. There are two additional workshops at the advanced level making it 16 hours in total.
- Intermediate students join after the first two workshops, they choose their size based on measurements and learn to make a beautiful bra. The intermediate level course is 8 hours long.
Thread Den is proud to be presenting an activity in the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Arts Program. The 2019 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) will take place 1 – 10 March 2019. The Arts Program takes the festival off the runway and encourages creativity and enables individuals to chase their dreams.

When the VAMFF runway fires up your creative juices we can help make your desires a reality. Learn to sew and make your own clothes.
