Being a 40DD makes it really hard to buy a bra, so I tried my hand at making one. I took a bra class offered at my local college and the teacher gave us a catalog from Bra-makers Supply. The teacher just "happened" to be Beverly Johnson (the owner of BMS) and she helped us through the construction methods, but her real strength is the personalized fittings. When she looks at that bra you have made, she just "knows" where it doesn't fit, and makes changes to the pattern right there in class. I thought we would be getting a "real" pattern but she gave us a copy of her own pattern that is only given out in her classes. I wish she would have that pattern available commercially, as hers goes up to J cups in some sizes, and F cups in others. Well, the long and short of it is that now I make all my own bras and they are the best I have ever had. I have tried the bra patterns from New Zealand, and from Elan but the 40DD's in those patterns just don't fit me at all.

I took the bra making class at Bra makers supply in Hamilton Ont recently and was very disappointed. II would leave with a bra and a pattern that worked for me. Well I left with a bra that did not fit at all and had to be taken apart because the cup was way to deep and to high and my pattern alterations were not finished. There were several of us in the class that were in the same boat. Very disappointed!

Sewinator, where are you located? Are you doing this as a primary income or just because you love it??

I just came looking for more information on Beverly Johnson. She is coming to a local dealership for a seminar and I wanted to know more about her.

Alex these courses are offered at Mohawk College in Hamilton. If you go to the Bra makers site ( it will tell you where and when Beverly is teaching next. She teaches all over Canada and has even taught in Hawaii.
