This bra was originally a very full coverage pattern. I stuck to the 1940’s pattern and it came out too un-sexy. So I did a little scribbling on it with some chalk and a snip, snip, sew sew later, here’s what we have.
I did the same edging on the bust of the bra that I did on the hem of the tap pants and it looks and fits so much better.
