Hi there! You did a beautiful job on this bra! I didn't read the measuring guide and ordered the wrong size :) Luckily, I did read the part about making a trial bra and only cut out the foam. Is it just me? I find the European sizing to be different than N. American - I usually take a 36E, but when I made the 80DD, I have an extra inch bust (all around) not fitting into the cup....Yet, when I compare my mum's size to the chart, she comes out SMALLER than what I've sewn for her in a N. American pattern....this sizing thing is so hard!! But, so far, from the little that I did sew, it fit together like a well made puzzle. I'm excited to order my correct size and start experimenting with fun fabrics! Are you planning to make any more of these beauties?
