My project for the vintage challenge on The Monthly Stitch. The pattern is Vera Venus’ 1940’s Bra. It came together well and is beautiful to wear.

      Thanks Nadia, next time I make it the straps will be widened, but it is pretty :)

      You know Toni, until I wore it for a whole day, I thought it would be a one-off, but it was so comfortable I’m going to make more. I will make the straps wider and will probably use comercial bra backs, but it works so well those are the only changes I’ll make.
      Recommend this pattern :)
