First ever bra

Great Yarmouth, ...






after seeing our fellow sewer simnstyle’s wonderful lingerie, I knew I had to try it myself. So I immediately got on the internet, looked for the pattern and when it arrived, I was so impatient that I couldn’t even wait to buy all the necessary bits and pieces and just used an old bit of mesh jersey from my stash. obviously not as fancy but it was a good test to try out size and fit and I am pleased with it :-)

      oh dear, tell me about it, My machine just didn’t like this fabric at all, my zig zagging went all funny and wrong. in the end I just used a normal stich :-((
      but I do love this pattern, will try again. the material was left over from a dress I did some years ago.
      You should try this pattern, It is fun :-)

      thank you! You are right, it is nice to try something new, and this was completely new to me, but it was fun!
