Oh I hope you don't get frustrated & quit, I have been sewing my own bras for a while. It takes a few tries to get a good fit. I highly recommend Lee Ann Burgess' book "Making Beautiful Bras" and Beverly Johnson's "The Bra-Makers manual ( both available at www.bramakers.com. They are a great company, excellent service and are a great source for supplies. Beverly Johnson has a new pattern called the "Pin-up girls" bra pattern available on that same web site,or you can give them a call. Once you get a pattern that fits (or you can even "clone" a good-fitting bra cup) you will zip thru them quickly and save a TON of money, get excellent fit and long-lasting bras.

Maybe you could try to graft the cups of the one that fits you onto this pattern?? Very disappointing, but it's impossible to tell whether it really fits till you're done..

Oh, bummer. But at least you have another pattern that works. Maybe you can make it more supportive. Any chance you could link a pic of the pattern? I''d like to see the shapes of the cup pieces.

This is rather an old Kwik Sew pattern. Perhaps one of their newer ones would work better for you.
