I’ve been giving you snippets and sneak peeks at my new patterns with Simplicity and today, I can finally talk about it. It’s Facebook official. My first collaboration was a dream come true.

Let’s Talk Bras: Join Me At Brooklyn Craft Company

This summer is going to be cray cray around these parts. In June, I’m jetting off to California to teach at Mimi G’s Sewing Conference, and in August, I’ll be making a very sentimental trip to Lake Okoboji. My mom grew up in Sioux City, but spent her summers on the lake. Lace Okoboji is a

Sponsor Feature: Rustic Gem Jewelry

At each and every bra workshop, details count. Details, details, details. The fabric and trims, the food, the decor – I try as much as I can to have it all “go”. Included in that are the goody bags. No party – and my workshops ARE a party – would be complete without a goody bag. Amirite or amirite?

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.

Out With The Old, In With The New I Spring Clean Your Undie Drawer

I am reminding myself of my mother today when she would tell me to wash my face and brush my teeth every night. Thanks ma! Because of her nightly reminders, I have a pretty decent complexion and half pearly whites as I creep up to 30-years-old. Yikes! So spring has sprung. That’s right y’all, time to refresh.

Eep! Crotch Linings Explained

Crotch lining is like the word moist. For some, it’s NBD to say. For others, let’s just say it doesn’t roll off the tip of their tongue mellifluously. I think it’s better than saying genital lining, don’t you think? Perspective people! It’s all about perspective. Crotch linings are a necessary component of undies, however, they aren’t discussed much.

Bra Making with Madalynne: STOCKHOLM!

Visiting London was the highlight of this year. I was there for just 7 days, but did a lot. I taught two amazing bra workshops and explored a bustling, dynamic city that reminded me a little bit of New York. I didn’t travel when I was younger. It wasn’t until I visited Paris last summer that

August is coming to a close – isn’t that cray cray? Where did the time go? Sigh. As the days become cool and crisp, you’ll find me in the studio gearing up for fall workshops. There are not one, not two, but four classes scheduled through the end of the year. That’s a lot of boobs!

SNEAK PEAK: Simplicity Patterns X Madalynne

SNEAK PEEK! Over the past year, I’ve been working with Simplicity on 2 exclusive lingerie patterns. They’re not in stores yet – they’re coming soon – so I can’t say much. What I CAN tell you, however, is that students at my summer and fall workshops will be the first to try. There will be both a soft and an underwire bra. You may even get to sew the pattern before they’re released. Interested in attending? See the class schedule here and sign up!

This year has been a big year for me. First the collaboration with Urban Outfitters and now this partnership with Simplicity? Pinch me! My vision has ALWAYS been to offer a way for people to either buy or make my products. Not everyone knows how to sew, and some sewists like to shop RTW. That’s why I have set out on a mission to provide both, and I’m almost there.
