I wanted to make a bra from non-stretch fabric, so I cut up a top that I’ve never worn to make this set.
The bra pattern is Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230, I added 0.5 cm to the length of the upper cup to compensate the non-stretchiness. The band is cut on bias and lined with pwer net.
The panties are cut on bias so they are stretchy. The pattern is from a Japanese pattern book from a local library.
The finished bra is not as smooth as bra made with lycra. With all those embroideries, they are not suitable to be worn under T-shirt. But they look very pretty and surprisingly comfortable! I think the bra would be perfect to be worn under thin loose blouse or with the floral straps peeking.
