My newest creation

It's been a long time... work and life have taken over and I haven't been sewing. I'm hoping to sew a lot on my sewcation in December! I'm thinking of taking two Craftsy Classes: Sewing Bras: Designer Techniques and Sewing Lingerie. Has anyone taken either of these classes? Do you recommend them?

I made started sewing this bra in August and took a 6 week break and finished in October. It is the best fit yet! I utilized Emerald Erin's bra theory post to help me move the apex up 1/2 inch. I also added external powerbars to each cut. I like the added support they add. All fabric and supplies are from Bra Maker Supply except for the burgundy lace which I bought from Fabricland. I love this bra and am hoping to make many more in the coming weeks.

P.S. Does anyone have any tips for photographing bras of larger cup sizes?
