Update 8/30/2022: We’ve added a new European supplier!
Sew a Willowdale Bra that fits AND looks absolutely fabulous with dozens of bra kits available all over the world! These gorgeous kits created for you by 11 different bra supply shops take the hassle out of sourcing your own bra making supplies.
The Willowdale Bra is a full frame underwire bra with a 4-piece cup design for vital support and lift in a beautifully rounded shape—the perfect bra for a large bust. It’s available as a PDF pattern in band sizes 28-54 and cup sizes C-J. That’s 126 unique sizes to help you get a fabulous fit!
Sourcing fabrics and notions for bra-making can be a bit more complicated than simply heading to your local fabric shop. But we’ve made it beyond easy by partnering up with specialist bra supply stores around the world to bring you so many gorgeous kits.
These kits are designed specifically for the Willowdale Bra (pattern not included in kits) and sold and shipped by the stores from their websites. There’s limited stock of each kit, so if you see something you like, get it before it’s gone!
