Baste the cups onto the front bra piece, using a long machine straight stitch, just around the edge of the cups. Basting will ensure you can easily remove the cups if you’ve got the wrong placement. As you sew, stretch the jersey fabric slightly so it lies smoothly under the bra cups and the bias-tape connector. If you don’t stretch the fabric, the jersey can tend to ripple and bunch up under the bias tape. I like to start sewing from the inside edge of the cups, next to the bias tape, toward the outside of the cups.
Once you’re sure you have the right placement. Sew the cups on with a stretch stitch.
