For the top, I started with vintage Simplicity 7143. I wanted more support, so I re-worked the top until it fit correctly around the cups from an old bra. There was a lot of hand stitching involved to ensure that the cups stay in place.
The bottoms were made from a self-drafted pattern.
The lace is hand stitched, as are the buttonholes.
