Master Class: Bra Workshop with Norma Loehr
July 21 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm| $475.00
We are back in the saddle with our Master Class series (a two-day workshop with an intense focus) with none other than bra-maker, Norma Loehr, the mastermind behind the very popular pattern company, Orange Lingerie. Have you been dreaming about getting into bra making? Come and learn from a master!
When: July 20th–22nd
Friday, July 20th: 5 pm–7 pm student meet + greet (this is optional)
Saturday, July 21st: 9 am–5 pm (lunch will be provided)
Sunday, July 22nd: 9 am–5 pm (lunch will be provided)
About the workshop: Over the course of this two-day workshop students will learn how to fit and sew their own custom underwire bra using the Orange Lingerie Marlborough Bra sewing pattern. Norma Loehr fits each student and teaches them how to customize the fit of their garment.
What skill level should I have? Students should have intermediate level sewing skills as evidenced by the ability to make a button up shirt or similar on their own.
About the pattern: The Marlborough Bra is a perennial favorite of Orange Lingerie’s custom clients since it provides such great support and shaping. This versatile style provides a great foundation for playing with different laces and prints for fun and variety.
The Marlborough is a pretty and supportive full-frame underwire bra for everyday featuring:
- A three-piece cup that allows for increased shaping and more ability to play with pattern and color combinations
- A power bar that moves the breasts toward the front of the body for a slimming effect
- A comfortable scoop back that lies smoothly under clothes and enhances support
- A lace upper cup to feel and look pretty every day
- A size range of 30A to 40J
What do I need? You will receive the full kit and pattern with payment for the workshop. This includes the Marlborough bra sewing pattern and all materials and notions (except thread) to make two bras. BERNINA sewing machines will be available upon request.
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.
