In this self-study FULL COURSE you will learn how to draft all by yourself a basic Master Pattern for a bra from scratch. It is based on the teaching material of the bra drafting courses Merckwaerdigh has organised in Holland for many years in the past. For the digital bra drafting self-study course this material is even further extended and illustrated at all the step by step instructions.
The Master Pattern is NOT INCLUDED in this e-course because you will learn to draft this yourself! The e-course is divided over 2 e-books merged together in one PDF file.
Part 1 : the master pattern
In 62 richly color illustrated pages this part teaches you how you can draft a well fitting bra master pattern with the Merckwaerdigh Method. You can choose from 2 different approaches :
The master pattern in your own measurements.
The master pattern in standard measurements.
The e-book course describes extensively the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. The text and illustrated examples will help you every step of the way what to do and also why to do it. After finishing your personal master pattern you will learn how to sew a test bra and all the adjustments you can make to achieve a perfect fitting bra!
Part 2 : designing
In 54 richly color illustrated pages this part teaches you step-by-step all the basic options to alter the master pattern into endless different bra designs.
New, directly from publisher with ENGLISH text.

This is a great book! Super detailed step-by-step instructions. It seems a bit complicated at first, but have faith, just follow the instructions and you'll be able to make your own bra patterns. I've just finished my first bra by following the instructions - and it fits perfect and looks great. Many more to come :)
While I have not had time to draft a bra pattern from scratch yet, this course has helped me to modify patterns I already had to make them fit much better. I don’t think I will ever have to buy a bra pattern again, highly recommended!!
A good technique, but there is an understatement, it is not explained how to adjust to the length of the frame, why the top narrows on large sizes. A lot of flaws!
PURE. GOLD. Properly explained, easy to understand, great knowledge base. Worth every penny and more. The seller is also amazing and helpful, I highly recommend this, and would never hesitate to purchase anything she has to offer....and I will be back.... Thank you for putting this out into the world!!
