Nursing Bra Maker Kit
Nursing Bra Maker Kit
Everything but the fabric to make three nursing (or not!) bras.
Three sets of straps that are ready to go. Sliders and rings are already attached, as are the nursing clips. They measure 3/4" wide and are pool safe! They can also be machine washed and dried. The straps have a light stretch.
Two yards of polyester/elastic 2" waistband elastic. This is a nice option to try instead of a fabric underband.
Six yards of natural color cotton/rubber swim elastic. This elastic has a fabric-like feel. We find it works best in all our bras, swim or not!
A 9" length of hook and eye tape. This is long enough for our largest bra size with the longline band. The hook and eye tape is good to have on hand, in case you accidentally make a bra that is too tight or too loose.
Plus a measuring tape! Can never have enough of those.
ALLERGY WARNING: CONTAINS LATEX
Supplies may change slightly from what is pictured.
About our Patterns
We aim for inclusive patterns that fit all bodies. If you don't see your size on this pattern, send us a message and we'll add it in!
Our tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!
We designed our tiles to save paper and be easy to assemble. Place the guidelines on top of each other and tape or glue. The letter layer has solid guidelines with a star in each corner. The A4 layer has dashed guidelines with a circle in each corner. Each page has a number, and the tutorial has an assembly chart.
A0 pages are 33.25" by 60" and are printable at most copyshops. We design ours to be printable in black and white. There are no passwords on any of our files.
Projector Optimized Files
Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.
Video + Picture Tutorial
We use pictures in our tutorials, not line drawings. We add in videos of steps that testers have a hard time understanding.
Our tutorial has a table of contents, along with bookmarks. This allows you to quickly get to the page you need.
When a pattern is updated, you will get an email notification. Since we are a newer pattern company, we are updating several times a year as our skills improve.
Each download contains a zipped (compressed) file, for downloading all the files at once. Download the .zip file, right click on the file and select "extract all".
We also include each file individually, if you wish to download each file separately.
