  1. Wanted to say a big thank you for this list - am just about to start my bra making journey and was thrilled to find, thanks to your list, that Fit 2 Sew sells the Craftsy Bra Making Kit. Kit and pattern have arrived and I'm hoping that 2017 is the year of the Bra for me!

  2. Thank you so much for this list. I have the "secret to sewing lingerie" book languishing on my shelf because I was so disheartened not being able to find the correct supplies to make the projects, so this has given me hope!
