With the help of our friends at Mead Hall in the vendor space, we'll talk out and then get hands on practice at a first attempt at Bra Decoration. We'll cover aesthetics, sneaky tricks with bra cup cleavage generation, tips and tricks for finding and layering decorations and basic techniques for sewing common fabrics and trims.
Some hand sewing experience will make this project easier, but mastery is not expected.
Please bring a padded underwire bra that you are willing to utterly destroy and some money for shopping at MeadHall ($10-20 is adviseable) or your own trim or fabric. Sewing basics will available (thread, scissors, needles, pins, etc).
