lavander bra

Added Mar 26, 2013

I made a bra! Impressed, inspired and instructed by various sewing blogists, especially Sigrid, whose tutorial I followed:, I actually made a bra, and I’m tickled pink! I used the Merckwaerdigh bhs 10 pattern, version D, with some modification of the bridge and reducng cup fullness to achieve that rare beast, an unlined, un-padded AA! It looks good (in my modest opinion!), it fits perfectly, and I feel like a million dollars in it! It did take a very long time, what with making muslins and getting to know my sewing machine better, but hopefully I will speed up with practice. Aha, a world of possibility opens before me!

Material Notes

Stretch lace and elastic


Garment Type

    It’s very very pretty and luxurious!! So well made, it must have been very difficult to sew such a detailed thing. Naughty girl!-:p
