Description

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.

    Found a shop on Etsy that sells custom dyed bra kits. Will post again after I receive my first order and get a look at the kit. Ordered a bronze and vanilla kit, pics look wonderful.

    Congratulations! To have a first bra that fits is an accomplishment indeed, and no doubt this will be the first in a long line :-)..
