That's so pretty! I especially love the peach one! Do you think that this would work for silk (non stretchy- like from ties)?

Great review and great bras as well! I'm about to sew this particular pattern at a course for making lingerie. Nice to know it is a good one to start with.

Lovely lingerie! Hmm, would cutting with pinking shears/cutter help eliminate the ridge?

Good Work, CindyAnn! I see the patterns will be put to good use. Your work is inspiriational, but I need to finish what's on my sewing table, first! Laura T. (aka "thankfulgirl")

Deepika, I made a 32B, but when I wear it I look like a 32AA. Drat! So if minimizing is your goal this might be the style for you.

Ooh la la! The pics look perfect, though I understand what you're saying about the ridge. Good job!

Great bra. I am thinking of buying this pattern. What size did you make?

Thanks for the tip Dale. I considered a zigzag. I'll try the three step next time.

Cindyann, thanks for the review! You've given me the courage to try a bra. (I'm also happy to know that this pattern is good for "smaller" people!).

Great review! Hope to create one for the girl friend.

Another beautiful bra again Cindyann! I have that problem with the ridge along the cup too. I've always wondered if it's possible to do a seamless type, but heard that unless you have the right type of "molding" equipment, it's not possible. I've found that using the triple zigzag helps flatten the seam out a little bit though. You might want to try that out.

Sewmom, I found the lace at a local shop. This shop has some great stretch laces.

Wow! What a gorgeous bra - looks better than RTW. :-) Pam, you can also dye nylon/lycra powernet.

Beautiful, where did you find the stretch lace? This is great .

Wow! Red hot mama! ;) That came out great Cindyann. Did you see the book "Making Beautiful Bras" that Gigi reviewed? I just ordered it... am looking forward to making some good ones too!

Katharine, actually, this was left over from some other lingerie so I already have a thong and panty to match. Woohoo! Tonia, my next set will be more practical. I have a peach colored tone on tone lycra print. I plan to make a matching panty too if I ever get that pattern I ordered. :(

Very sexy Cindyann! It looks very professional. I like how you covered the centre piece with the stretch lace. Mind if I knock that off?! What colour will your next one be?

Pam, Check one of the internet stores that caters to lingerie sewing. Most of them have it in white, black and nude.

Great review! Beatutiful bra! Why not whip up a matching set of panties while you're at it? Thanks for the inspiration.

Beautiful bra. Thanks for the review. Is power net difficult to find? Does it come in colors other than nude?

Great review! This is so pretty! I am inspired! (and boy do I need new undies....)
