Bra Making Month: Tips from my Favourite Teacher, a Little Bit of Harriet, and the Importance of Critical Thinking with Amy from Cloth Habit // EP20

Cloth Habit

So as I'm sure you heard, just this past week Amy from Cloth Habit just released the Harriet pattern and it's taken the bra sewing world by storm. 

If you're not familiar with Amy, she's the genius behind the Watson Bra - you know, that famous bra making pattern with over 1000 pictures of it shared on Instagram. 

She's also the teacher-extraordinaire behind the Cloth Habit blog, which is easily the best resource around for learning how to sew bras. I couldn't have sewn my first bra without her help - it was like she held my hand each step of the way without knowing it. 

Today she's come on the show to talk shop - sharing her love of teaching, a little bit about her latest pattern Harriet, and some phenomenal tips for beginner bra sewists you won't want to miss. 

You're going to absolutely love this episode, my friend. 

In other great news, Amy is offering a discount off the Harriet pattern for Maker Style listeners. The code is 10OFFMAKERSTYLE for Harriet only and is valid until the 13th of February, 2017. 

Not to mention, all of the profits from Harriet are being donated to help support the housing and job needs of Syrian refugees. Great bra, great cause.
