Intimately Yours - Bras That Fit

Intimately Yours - Bras that Fit is Anne St. Clair's Bra Workshop in a cover. If you have taken the workshop this will be a great refresher and supplement. If you want to take the workshop and are unable this is the place to start. Intimately Yours has 100 pages, 170 photographs, spiral bound, and has a pocket in the back for your pattern.

Topics Covered

  • What is a good fit
  • Anatomy of a bra
  • Taking measurements
  • Selecting your pattern
  • Lingerie fabrics & findings
  • Sewing tools
  • Making the basic bra (this is step by step with photos and plenty of white space for your notes)
  • Analyzing the fit
  • Modifications to the basic bra - decorative lace, uplift, full cup padding, halo, side support, bra bands with side seams, and boning
  • Specialty bras and other designs - front closure, partial band bra, minimizer, tween, support sport bra, nursing, and prosthetic

This book is self published and available only from Needle Nook Fabrics. This was written to be a workbook where your notes, pictures and drawings become part of your bra making experience.

Price $35.00

I was at your all day workshop at the ASG Conference in Chicago. WOW!!! I walked out of the class with a custom fit bra. What a wonderful thing to have!!! In addition, I have made FIVE more with the pattern you and your great team customized and the easy to follow instructions.

You and your team are just GREAT!!!! You all worked so hard... THANK YOU!!!!!

I apologize if I've missed something, but is it possible to order your book online? If so, could you point me in the direction to do so?

I heard about your book from Sew Forth Now.

Thank you!

I just found your website through the new Threads magazine. I have been wanting to make my own bra but was unsure whose pattern to use. Your book sounds intreguing but one question I have, do I also need to buy a pattern or does the book's instructions cover this. I am trained in patternmaking (not lingerie) so this would not be a problem.

Have you ever considered making a DVD to compliment your book Intimately Yours-Bras That Fit, for those of us that do not live near you?

Anne said...

Bless2BHome: There is a dvd available. It is nearly 3hours and 2 disc. Call the store to order 316-684-5989

Bless2BHome said...

Thank you so much. Will be calling you shortly after Christmas.

Michelle said...

Is there an option to download your book?

saulute said...

I was wondering too, if you have e-book version as well.

Anne said...

We do not have an e-book verson at this time.

Lissa said...

I was wondering if I actually can order your book even if I live far from the US.

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative
and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
I'm very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
this topic to be really something that I think I would
never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as
yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

I'm new to developing sites and I was wanting to know if having your site title related to your content really that crucial? I see your title, "Blogger: Needle Nook Fabrics " does seem to be spot on with what your blog is about yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly valued.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done a great
job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on
Opera. Excellent Blog!
