Karen, I got the notions kit from Danglez, I would recommend asking them how wide the elastic in the kit is -- especially if you are larger busted you would probably want at least 1/2" wide, but some kits' elastic is narrower than that. There are many online stores selling kits now -- also ELingeria, Sew Sassy, Bra Maker's Supply, and probably several others I don't know about.

I've been wanting to make bras since I am really hard to fit. This is a fabulous first effort! Where did you get your bra kit?

Thank you for your review. I am going to try these, sometime soon. I hate bra shopping because nothing every fits and it is all synthetic.

You are well on your way to fitting a nice cotton bra. Glad you can see where to make the changes to it is a better fit. Looks great.

REally nice work on this bra. It's so pretty! I am in awe of people who tackle bra-making. It's no mystery that you have to tweak the fit since bra shopping is a nightmare.

it is so pretty - I hope the next one fits better. I have this pattern and mean to try it out.

It looks really pretty, and it must be cool and comfortable to wear, especially in summer. It's a pity the fit is disappointing. The next one will be even better.
