My newest lingerie set, made with lycra and stretch lace in very soft rose colour. The stretch lace actually has butterfly pattern on it. I use the lace on both upper and lower cup, so the whole cup is transparent. The lower cup is lined and the upper cup has thin elastic across the top so it will ‘grab’ better.
This is the set that I’m really satisfied so far. After making several bras, I think I finally got the rhythm and was able to make this one without making too many mistakes. When making bras, you can only see the fit when you’re all done, so it takes several times to find what works best for you. There are hundreds of little things that you can adjust. My first bra is fine and they are now part of my daily wear, but then I feel that I should have cut the elastic for the band a little bit shorter so they will be tighter.
