Bra without underwires (I’ve made one with underwires but that was a while back, but I found the channeling pretty hard to sew on. Since this is the first (underwear) project I made in two years or so I decided to start it easy ;)). The patterns is based on the triangle bikini top pattern on pattern school.
I think it makes the natural shape of my breasts come out quite nicely, so for that I’m content.
At the time I took the picture, the straps were straight. I thought it might look better when I crossed them, so I did (doesn’t make that much of a diffrence). Another point for imrpovement is the underwith; the bra is a bit to wide.
As for the panty; I used quite an old pattern, which doesn’t fit that well anymore. I should go on and investigate to find something that fits me perfectly ;), but that’ll take time.
The lace is only on the front (I cut it for something else that din’t work out) and it is a bit unevenly processed, but as my mother uses to say; this way you can see i’ts made by hand.
I’m most content about the waist elastic I picked.
some stretchy knit, about 50 cm for width; I could make this set thrice out of that amount of fabric but you’ll need the width.
Lace: 20cm or so for the panty, a lot more (1,5 metre?) for the bra.
I used strap elastic for the panty waist and the bra underband, for the whole set less then 2m.
A bit of lingerie elastic for the back part of the bra (50cm?).
Hook and eye closure, crotch fabric (soft cotton), “eyes and eights” for ajusting the bra straps.
We're wishing Meg a happy birthday with 50% off her favorite patterns.
