Hi there! Here I go again with the power bar series!

If you’ve been reading my last bra-making posts, you’d have noticed that I’ve used a lot of “power bars”. But, what exactly are they? Well, I must confess that I didn’t know that these things had a proper name until some months ago, when I took the Beverly Johnson’s Craftsy Class. With the help of that class and some books I learned what are power bars or slings, what are they used for and which types of power bars could you find.
