A custom bra for my friend Nikki.
She wanted a padded, underwired halter bra in red/ivory. It’s nearly finished and I’m pretty happy with the design. I love making custom orders. Other people always give a great inspiration buzzzz :)

    Wow what a great job! Do you do custom orders? If you do, I would love a price list! :)

    Very Nice! Cute and interesting to look at without the sleaze factor so prevalent in shops today where the choices seem to be granny panty full cover up with no trim or scratchy lace/(or worse some faux animal print) with underwires that pop out after a couple of washings (by hand of course.) Another great job, Queenb!

    Thanks for the comments on my bra. You really don’t need a special machine to make bra’s. A regular sewing machine will do. The tunnel for the bra wire is called: wire channeling. you can buy it by the metre (yard) and it can easily be sewn on a bra with a regular straight stitch.

    This is great. It fits perfectly and a fantastic design. I keep thinking about making a bra but it all seems very daunting… One day ..
