It's surprising what you can find in big old fabric warehouses. On my last visit to one here in Calgary, as I was wandering through the upholstery section, I spied a bolt of something plum coloured. On closer inspection, it revealed itself to be a lone bolt of plum col...

Inspiration comes from many places. 

Sometimes I am inspired by fabric, by other designers or by the bras made by the wonderful ladies in my Braphoria group on Facebook. Sometimes, inspiration comes straight from nature - from a butterfly, an animal or a flower like the...

There's something about Spring and Summer that brings out the romantic in all of us, and weddings abound. Indeed, the wedding season is very much upon us - which is the reason for a corset and bra set that I was asked to make. 

I had the perfect fabric - this sheer non...

It's been a few weeks since I put pen to paper - or fingers to keyboard - to provide you all with something lovely to look at.

 

What can I say? Flu, snow, sick kids and a few non-bra related commissions have kept me busy elsewhere. 

 

But this week has been a blast! Four...

I find strapless bras to be one of life's challenges. You need one for the 2 days a year (max) that you decide a strapless dress is a really good idea...even though it often isn't. So every woman really should have one, and most of us do, but usually the fit is terribl...

Winter is sneaking up on me. It was 3 degrees C last week and it tried to snow. I was cold. I wanted thermal vests, flannel onesies, plaid pajamas. I was told to get a grip, and close the windows.

 

Still, even if the weather is meant to improve this week, it's a sign of...

I've taken a fair amount of time off this summer in order to move house and entertain overseas visitors. It's been a gorgeous summer, but all good things must come to an end, and when I was asked to make a bra in black and deepest red, I knew that people were starting...

Once again I've made you wait for a new bra. I do have a good excuse - the last few weeks have been spent renovating a brand new space for Mrs. Weavers sewing room and a parlour, dedicated to receiving clients in a comfortable space in which to provide fittings and ama...

During the last month, I have been 4,000 km away from home in the bra-making capital of the world - Hamilton, Ontario - learning from the world's most knowledgeable bra-maker, none other than the Fairy Bra Mother herself, Beverly Johnson.

 

It's been wonderful to be...

After a week without a new bra to show you, I hope you will find this one worth the wait.

 

This is Peaches & Cream and is the third bra in my Spring/Summer collection for this year. All the bra's include silk charmeuse, but not this one. It's the exception and is an all...
