    This is a great one and I hope the first of many to come! Be careful that you do not become a lingerie addict, it is already too late for me. Have fun!

    looks like you did an awesome job. I’ve been considering doing this for my wife as she has a hard time finding a cotton bra that she likes and doesn’t distort after washing. I just don’t know that I would have the patience to try and get it right. Looks very nice. congrats on a job well done and for sharing not only the finished project, but also the rest of the info on fehr trade.!
