The days are getting chilly, the nights are drawing in faster, and we can’t deny it any longer: winter is here. But there’s a glittery light at the end of the tunnel, because party season is approaching! We at Elise Patterns can’t wait to don a sequin dress and cashmere cardigan, and of course, why should our outerwear have all the fun? It’s the perfect time to sew up a few glamorous lingerie sets to go underneath your party dresses, and we’re thinking about jewel-toned lace, sparkly elastics, and sumptuous trimmings. Here’s some beautiful party season bra inspiration to inspire your bra making. They would all make great interpretations of our Chelsea Bra pattern, and we even have some new bra kits in stock. Happy sewing!

Jewel tones are perfect for winter, especially luxurious with contrasting gold bra findings. Go for swiss dot tulle and black with our Maroon Bra Kit, or keep it pink ultram oral with our Hot Pink Bra Kit.
Go for gold

This fabulous bra uses gold and black lace, but for a simpler look, you could jazz up a black lace bra with gold bra straps using our Disco Bra Kit.

Don’t stick to dark tones just because of the gloomy weather! Keep things bright and vibrant with colourful lingerie, like our Raspberry Lime Bra Kit.
Shimmer and Sparkle

If all else fails, grab a hot stone applicator and a couple of packets of Swarovski crystals, and go mad. Our sheet Swiss Dot Tulle would make the perfect background.
Whether you’re a fan of winter or not, wearing exciting handmade lingerie is a perfect pick-me-up in the run up to the festive season. What’s harder it to keep it hidden!
