Great review and highly encouraging for those of us who are put off by the thought of making something so fiddly. I hope your next one turns out really well.

Wow - this is really good! I wouldn't know where to begin. I look forward to seeing the one made from "the good stuff"

Thanks for the review--I took a bra making workshop last year and had a lot of success. You'll love being able to design make your own bras!

Thank you for the inspiration to do something I have never even wanted to do! Never occurred to me. Now THAT'S a good review!

Wow, you actually make this sound do-able. One of these days I'll work up the nerve to try. Yours turned out great, can't wait to hear about the next ones.

You might have just started a bra making revolution! I'm also inspired to give it a try. There are few things more harrowing than bra shopping, so it would be great to get a few patterns that fit and be free of RTW forever! Thanks for a fun review.

Oh, thank you! What a good idea! I too have a fair amount of good fabric, and a really burning failure to hold me back (the worse case of underwire-poking I couldn't even have imagined before). So far all I've done is contemplate patterns and measure myself into better RTW, which isn't that bad a result :-). But your toile looks fine, although if I were you I might change that elastic and wear it for hiking or something..

Oh I've had this pattern for a long time now but haven't gotten to it. So very glad you reviewed it.

Great bra and review! I have had this pattern for a few years now and really should look into making it. I need new bras as my current ones just don't provide enough support. Well done.

I would have never had the confidence to try making my own bras. Thanks to your wonderful review, I may have to give it a try!

All three pieces are beautifully made. The tutorials are awesome and will most definitely help me when I start to make lingerie.
