    I’m in the US – I like LilyPaDesigns for supplies also.


    Lily’s patterns are great for large cups, so I bet her kits would work for most sizes of the Willowdale. She’s also a great teacher – she does classes every year for the Bra Sewing Bee and I’ve heard good things about her online bra fitting and alteration course.

    The ladies (and gentleman) at Sew Sassy are extremely helpful. I live nearby and they are always great about letting me pick up orders, even though they are no open for retail hours.

    Tried to link into the bra shop, message up saying they are closed! Tough times indeed for all
