I was especially thankful for the feedback from my pattern testers during my recent test for the Val Breast Form. I originally developed this pattern to make soft protheses for my sister-in-law, and her breast cancer treatment didn't include chemo or radiation. I had to make some changes to the pattern to make it more friendly for people who have more sensitive skin due to their treatments, and my testers were really great about helping me problem solve.
As one of my testers said, no more sad beige! I was so happy to see Val made in bright and cheerful fabrics. Here are their beautiful creations.

I made myself a bra and realized at the very end that the bridge wasn't wide enough at the bottom. Instead of tossing it (or torturing myself by being squished) I realized I could add more room to the width of the bridge. Separator wire to the rescue!
I design lingerie sewing patterns for everyday comfort and feminine style in an inclusive size range. Fill up your underwear drawer with beautiful custom-made bras and panties in your favorite fabrics and trims, designed to fit your body.
