At Tafe this term I have part taken in a bra making course. Very basic, only 8 weeks, we used patterns and kits from an australian website boobytraps.com.au.
We used pattern ‘Boo 3’ Very traditional style. We did samples and then this is the first complete bra we have made. It’s in my size, 10B, however it needs alot of perking to actually fit me!
They are quite quick to put together once you gte the hang of it, and the kits you can buy from the website really make things easy, as it sends you everything you need, besdes the underwire. Makes the issue of fabric matching and sourcing much easier!
My next one I will be doing i will fit the cups a bit better to me, or will probably insert moudled cups instead, and widen the underband. Also use some prettier fabrics!!
Not sure what to do with this one now :-/?
anywho much fun was had =^_^=
