• Dancing Queen!

    August 26, 2018 Your Fairy Bra Mother

    When I think of September, I think of school starting up again. But for many mothers, it is also the time when Dance School starts again. So what better way to challenge ourselves in September but with a theme of Dancing Queen? I’m going to make this one easier by including all forms of dance; ballet, belly dance, ballroom dance, latin dance, even Burlesque or pole dancing. As long as it’s a costume for dance, you’re in. The costume must…

  • Take Pride!

    May 27, 2018 Your Fairy Bra Mother

    In June, we take pride in a group that is often overlooked. That’s people with “other” sexual orientations, including the gay, lesbian and bi-sexual community.  (Honestly, I don’t care who anyone sleeps with, as long as they can sew!) But it also includes those who are transitioning from one gender to another. So this month’s challenge is a simple one – show awareness and support by making an intimate apparel garment (bras, bralettes, swimwear, corsets or panties) in the rainbow colours of Pride.…
