|Another Shelley bra!|
Using the pattern and a kit from Bra Makers Supply, I decided to make another of the Shelley bras, for me.
The pattern calls for a lace upper cup, however, I decided to line the lace with the main fabric (burgundy/dark cherry duoplex).
I'm wondering if I should use a neckline elastic?
I think that I'm getting the hang of this pattern, and found that it went together easily and quickly.
This particular kit included a thick, spongy double knit fabric for the wings, as opposed to power net and I think that this change alone made the bra a bit looser than the last version that I sewed.
For reasons that I cannot remember now, I decided to use a pale pink elastic, which looks nice from the front, a bit odd from the back. Who knows, if I shorten the back a bit, I might use that opportunity to try dying the hook and eye....and bra strap elastic? Or I could simply continue to enjoy my soft, comfortable bra
