You did a great job .Did it save money compared to the 25.00 average price and does it maybe cost more for the first one but the next ones are cheaper since you can squeeze more out of a yard ? How is the fit does it feel good on . I have a problem with sliping down straps ,I imagine you can set them in a better place to prevent that . Good job . Thanks for your taking the trouble to show all of us who have this interest in making our bras . Carole

Nancy I have this pattern but I never even opened the envelope. After I read your first review I pulled out my pattern and read through the instructions and thought I could do this. Then I read this second review and I got on line and placed my order from Sew Sassy. Thank you for posting your reviews it's the inspiration I needed to break out of my sewing comfort zone.

Thanks for adding those additional things to your review, Nancy. Your bra is very lovely, but it is ALL about support with bras. About two years ago, I was professionally fitted and it was as you say, most of the support came from the band. I had a lot of people ask me if I had lost weight. It is all about that space between the torso and the breast that gives a fuller busted person that illusion. I am going to try this pattern. Thanks.

Wow. I've never thought about making bras, and I'm still not sure I would, but your review and clear explanation of everything makes me think I COULD if I wanted to. That Polish website was amazing - you know a good bra can make a difference, but that really shows it. Beautiful result here, I can imagine there are quite a few more on your list to make now.

Thanks for that link--amazing difference. I think I'll send that link to my daughter, as I've been trying to get her into a 36DD rather than the 38C that she insists on buying. Your bra is lovely. I've used that pattern myself and really like it.

I don't read Polish either, but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

That is one good looking bra. As well as the good fit everything looks beautifully finished.

Sigh. I wish I could read Polish. But I can see those pics (that finally. loaded) and am amazed at how when the bustline is supported and moved up, the belly looks smaller, too. Or is it just that the suits are supporting the belly as well? Again, maybe if I could read Polish... Your comments about support - that is what I need to hear. I've been (and still am) afraid to make my own due to the support issue.

Beautiful.... I really need to make myself some new ones.

Thank you for posting this review! Bra fittings have always been a pain for me, and I have caused pain for others when I worked at a lingerie store. The idea of sewing a good supportive bra and being able to adjust the pattern to meet our needs... It just blows my mind!

Just beautiful and a great review! I too would like to know about the support.

Such a pretty bra and I really like that you were able full coverage on the side fronts.

How pretty and it fits so well! Will you make one for me? :-) You have inspired me to to try this avenue of sewing....I spend way too much on RTW bras, and I am not happy with the fit. Great job!

I, too, would like to know how well this supports large busts because that's my issue. I made a bra ages ago and wore it until it started to crumble. These home-made bras are so comfy. Yours is very pretty and I agree with other comments that it looks professional and it's too bad you can't wear on the outside.

gorge- I just love the colors you used. It is a shame you'll wear a top over it. Maybe you should become Sue Ellen Mishke?

That looks so professional, Nancy. May I ask how supportive this bra is? (particularly for a large bust)
