Celebrity meets

20140629_163930Really happy after my class yesterday with Beverly Johnson from Bramakers. This woman is a living oracle when it comes to pattern construction for bras and underwear. I’ve read her blog for years and bought supplies from the web store Bramakers supply I strongly recommend her site for anyone interested in this, and by all means, take a class with her if you can! Please not that I’m just a very happy customer.

And in two weeks, Dolly Parton is coming as well, although I doubt I’ll have the chance to be in the same picture as her.

Undergarments to show off

Two more Comox trunks, and the gift is complete.

Even the 15-year old was impressed and claimed to want some. The ultimate compliment, I say.

Buttons and needles and pins, oh my!

To be Madonna. Or almost

On my to do list are two more comox trunks as they were part of a birthday present. In the store the other day, the receiver found this leprechaun print and of course he must have it. I hadn’t checked beforehand how much fabric was needed, and this was a bit expensive, eco cotton and all, so I estimated. And what do you know, it’s just right, with a little bit extra to use the print in the best way

Brushing up my skills

This weekend I’m taking a class with Beverly Johnson, founder of Bra makers supply. So I’m brushing up my skills. She blogs about her classes at Life of a fairy bra mother
