A ‘Continental’ Bra Making with Madalynne Workshop

Excuse me while I step onto my soapbox…

Last Saturday was the 16th Bra Making with Madalynne workshop. Sixteen, woot woot! It was a ‘Continental’ Class with folks traveling from Virginia, Florida, Texas and California to attend. I’m blushing 🙂

Stepping off my soap box now…

At the beginning of the day, students are usually quiet. Maybe it’s the lack of caffeine, or the caffeine wearing off. Or maybe they’re not morning peeps? Whatever the usual case, it wasn’t this time around. Like love at first sight, we hit it off from the beginning. Kaneisha, Dari and I have a huge girl crush on Mimi G. Surprise, surprise, they’ll be attending her conference in June too! So excited to be seeing them again! Also, Dari was the winner of a Valentine’s Day contest sponsored by PFAFF. Thanks again to PFAFF for gifting her a spot. Muchos besos!

Everyone made the Madalynne x Simplicity 8229 underwire bra using fabrics and trims from my lingerie kits (currently sold out but plan on restocking mid May). The combo of the blush pink and neon yellow was divine. Just divine.

I was also super excited to offer students gifts from 2 sponsors. Rustic Gem gifted a pair of tassle earrings that I wore for the class and gave away safety pin necklace to one student. SmashTats gifted 3 temporary tattoos to students as well.

Just as the last 16, cheers to another great bra workshop. On to the next one in a few weeks! The May session will kick off my summer classes, where I’ll be debuting 3 new patterns with Simplicity and partnering with Spoonflower and C.Banning. That class is sold out but July and August (bodysuit!) still have spots left. Click here to sign up now!

Once in a while I make something and feel like it just needs a little extra zing. Perhaps I chose a fabric that didn’t thrill me, often this happens when it’s something that many would consider a wardrobe basic, in a neutral color. For me that often me…

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending a Disneybound event put together by Dole Whip Dame. The theme? Disneyland itself! Attendees were encouraged to bound as attractions, restaurants, shops, and shows. Now the concept isn’t new to me, as I bounded as the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor last spring. This time I […]

Second take on V1525: A red Rebecca Vallance pant suit!

EN Summary: I decided to make myself another Rebecca Vallance pant suit for summer (click here for the first version) and this time around I opted for a fabric which I believe is closer to the original model in color and drape. Keep reading the sewing review (or hop over here to see more photos of me wearing this suit).
PT Sumário: Decidi fazer outro conjunto top e calça Rebecca Vallance para o verão (podem ver a primeira versão aqui) e desta vez optei por um tecido mais parecido com o original, tanto na cor como no cair.

I have been accused, more than a few times in my life, of being overly optimistic. You wouldn’t think that such a thing could be a negative, but it works against me from time to time, as I persist (usually … Continue reading
