The bra is made using a vintage 1930’s bra pattern reproduction, Depew #610 and I’m so happy with how it came out.
The bra is sewn in such a way that it’s completely reversible!
There is a Sew-Along for making this bra over at my blog A Few Threads Loose where you can find complete, step-by-step instructions and photos for making your own!
The outer blue fabric is silk charmeuse cannibalized from a silk pair of pajama pants that didn’t survive my tossing and turning for long.
The black fabric is some lovely tissue silk that I re-purposed from a blouse found at a thrift shop!
