1930's Silk Crepe de Chine Bra - Depew #610
Added May 5, 2014
The bra is made using my any size draft-at-home pattern, Depew #610 and I’m so happy with how it came out. (Keep in mind that it fits me perfectly, though it’s a bit off on my dress form, Lusty Lulu – she’s a bit more symmetrical than I am).
You can see more photos, follow the up and coming tutorials on making this bra, and follow links to my supplies, and the video tutorial that I used to make the spider web roses at my blog A Few Threads loose:
I used silk crepe de chine for the main fabric, and I re-purposed a soft silk vintage scarf (cutting around a few pinholes) for the lining.
For the back closure, I used my absolute favorite, go-to French bra closure, and silk ribbon for the straps. The soft elastic is great because it adds a bit of stretch and comfort to a bra made with woven fabrics.
