Description

Strapless bra with lycra-covered foam cups. Pattern is Merckwaerdigh strap4, the fabric is this wonderful red lycra with capsule-shaped dots that I bought in Okadaya, Shinjuku, and other notions are from Merckwaerdigh ebay store. The foam lining is from Makebra.com.

As usual I started with size 30D and shortened the band slightly to make it size 28E. The band is widened a bit so I can use 3 rows of hook and eye instead of 2. I also made my own detachable straps by wrapping an elastic strap with the lycra fabric.

The panties are made with the lower part of bodysuit pattern. I eliminated the side seam by connecting the side front pieces are connected to the back pieces. This alteration creates an interesting pattern direction on the side front.
