Fixing common bra fit issues and other lingerie sewing tips


For the past few months I’ve been contributing to the Craftsy blog, writing posts on how to sew lingerie. These posts are not specific to my own line of lingerie sewing patterns, but applicable to most lingerie sewing projects.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this doesn’t detract from the tutorials and sewing content I plan on providing here, it’s just an extra resource. I’m really enjoying the challenge of writing these posts for Craftsy!

I thought I’d provide a quick run down and links of some of my recent posts.
