Maddie Flanigan of Madalynne Intimates expertly demonstrates how to sew the Barrett bralette -- a sporty, hassle-free pull-on bra that has adjustable straps, an elastic band at the bottom, and sweet details like picot elastic and a front opening. In this class, Maddie demystifies sewing with elastic, basic bra construction, and working with delicate stretch fabrics. The pattern accommodates bust sizes from 26” - 46” and comes with two different cup options. The bralette comes together surprisingly quickly and without the use of any specialized sewing equipment. The end result is an easy-to-wear undergarment that looks great and feels fabulous.
