Hi, how do I leave an email? I don't know a thing about "blogging"! Do you sell fabric, elastic, etc. around the country? I sure wish I lived near you so I could attend all your classes! I am currently sewing on some panties and am trying to locate 3/8" beige very plush lingerie elastic I like at a good price in bulk.....do you sell or can you recommend a source??? I would even consider white and then tea dye or Ritz dye! I have taken two bra classes a few years back and have made a bra and a bustier or two and then decided it was easier to wait til Victoria Secret had a sale!!! I am a 32D but as I had yo-yo'ed like crazy in my early 20's (I am now 50) I am fuller on the bottom and flatter on top as far as my actual breast! I don't have a girlfriend who could actually help me fit myself though I do have a Uniquely You dress dummy (but even though I sewed a fitting shell to fit me and then fit that on the foam I have since lost about 10 lbs so she is about 40-35-43 and I am 37-30-39!) I fluatuate in weight 10-20 lbs and size 8 (at my absolute thinnest to size 12+ (with Size 10 on top and 10-12 on the bottom being reasonable most of the time).... It is highly unlikely I can maintain this weight (I am living on one bowl of cream a wheat a day, a bowl of shredded wheat and then maybe a light can of fruit or salad. I love front hook bras as I have had a neck surgery.....what patterns do you recommend? I live in Maryland in the Baltimore area.....do you have any one you know of who makes bras here? Thanks!

Hi:
I'm trying to make a bra with some nice stretch satin I got. I got the cups down by using knit stabilizer but every time I try covering the powernet with the satin stuff I end up with a nasty looking band. Is there any way I can use just the satin, or a way to keep the satin and the powernet from being so irritated with each other? I'd love it if powernet came in more colors than black and white. I found some mesh powernet but I'm not sure it would work on a bra band.

Trisha: When I use a stretch satin with power net lining I stitch them together using a medium width and length zig-zag. I make sure that the stretch satin is nearest the feed dog on my machine. I find it much easier to control. You were correct, mesh powernet is not the same weight as the medium powernet used for bras. The mesh powernet is commonly used for dance and theatre costumes when they need the support for the garment but want it to look like skin. Let me know if you have any further questions.
