Try a cotton broadcloth for the cups. My mother used to prefer a cotton bra living in FL,AL,TN with no AC. Hers were only 1 layer not 2 like this pattern though.

@Julia C - thanks for the tip. It was terribly hot here in CT last summer and I can't stand the thought of wearing nylon bras. I saw that Kwik Sew has a bra pattern that uses woven fabric, so I'll probably be reviewing that pattern sometime in the next month or two.

Beautiful bra! I love the delicate and feminine lace. To minimize appearance of cup seams, I use these techniques: 1) ease stitch 2) make sure tension is on the loose side for cup seams 3) steam press cup seams open on dressmaker's ham 4) cover inside seam with Dritz Seams Great (thin sheer bias nylon) by a) edgestitching on each side of seam or b) wide 3 step zig-zag, centering on cup seam (again, with quite loose tension). For the sheer lining/slippery issue, I use a temporary spray adhesive made for quilting to adhere sheer lining to lace and cut as one. It all washes out when bra is done, but keeps it together while sewing. So glad to see others sewing bras - they are such fun!
