This is from an Elan pattern and bra kit. I found the directions almost impossible to follow and the pictures not much better. The structure of the pattern is very good. If you know how to sew a bra and are looking for the pattern pieces, this is a good pattern company.
Lots of trial and error and head scratching on this one.
I wear a 34G and found this bra to be extremely comfortable and supportive. I have a very physically demanding job and I wore this for 8 hours of non-stop lifting and moving and it wore and felt like a dream.
Well worth the effort and frustration. Need to modify a touch for looks and to refine the fit just a touch but will keep this one and wear it out, I am sure.
