I really like the strap you have coming from the centre front to the main shoulder strap - looks as though that feat of engineering would def provide super support. Beautifully sewn and I like your version better that the inspiration as well!

Your bra is even more provocative than the original Agent Provocateur bra! And the grey lace IMHO is actually better than the black would have been. Though I will never reach your level, I still want to try a bra, though it will no doubt be UN-provacative. LOL.

What a knockout bra! You do beautiful work.

sewingsilly - I can't believe you drafted this lace! I dyed some of the elastics and mesh though, the lace was already this beautiful gray color. I had good results before using RIT on nylon so that's why I was kind of disappointed that it didn't seem to work as well this time.

Gorgeous knock off. Engineering at its finest.

Very nice!! I actually drafted this lace when I was a textile drafter. Nice to see it used to make something so pretty!! The lace is nylon or poly and I'm sorry to say RIT dye will not take on this fiber content to get a rich black color.

Unbelievably gorgeous. A stunning piece of sewing. Yours is so much more appealing than the overstuffed original!

Gorgeous!! I love everything about this beautiful bra. I will say that I used iDye recently - the first time I dyed polyester, and it worked great! (Purchased from Dharma, but other places have it, too.)

I totally LOVE the back detailing. I will use the idea on one of my own. What a sexy little bra you've got there.
