Bra Salvation

I recently got fed up with wearing under-wire bras, even though I had finally found a well-fitting bra brand (unfortunately in Switzerland, right after moving to Finland… drat!). But I still found myself taking it off as soon as I would get home. So I needed a more comfortable yet pretty solution, which I found in Ohhh Lulu’s Jasmine bra pattern. Insanely easy, fast and great for jersey scraps!

    I’m with you, underwires are the pits! I’ve started making my bras too, using Vera Venus’ pattern, they are my most comfortable – Oh Lulu’s patterns are great for scraps aren’t they :)
