I love your tip about sandwiching the two lower cup pieces with the top so you don't have to topstitch. Lots of great suggestions. Beautiful bra!

The trim on the black bra was from Bra-makers supply the trims on the other bras came from North West Fabrics in Winnipeg, very cheap, I called them and they sent me an assortment.

This looks so beautiful. I am curious as to where you got the pretty trim. I have never seen any like that.

More bra pictures are on my blog, address in my bio and above, and have a look at Sigrid's blog too (listed below) she is the bra-making queen.

Beautiful bra. Very RTW indeed, sounds like you are on a roll.

Waht a beautiful and totally professional looking bra! I, too, am inspired to try something like that myself someday. Fantastic job!

this looks great, & the beauty of making bras (apart from the obvious reason, that they fit well) is you really don't need any fancy stitches to make them so even a beginner could get a great result. would love to see photos of your other ones too - brilliant!

Very impressive! It looks great, still something I haven't tried but if I could get the fit.....WOW!

Wow, it looks great, very RTW! Yours is much better looking than the pattern example. I would never think of making a bra (being an almost-intermediate sewer), but thanks to your great review, who knows...
