|Pattern Description: Bra & Garter pattern. Bra features a two piece cup designed for nylon tricot and lace with powernet wings.|
Pattern Sizing: 32-38 A-D and 38DD. I made up a 38D as that's the sister size to my normal RTW size of 36DD which was not included in this pattern.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I don't think the instructions are all that clear, so I can see somebody with less experience maybe struggling. I also changed some of the construction details.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The instructions aren't great if you are a beginner or have never tried sewing bras before. But I think the fit was great on me. There is no information on alterations unless you already know how to do it yourself.
Nylon Tricot and Non stretch lace with the usual elastic trimmings, bra findings and underwire
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I modified the bridge piece but that was it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would.
Conclusion: I quite like the pattern, instructions aren't that great but it's worth a try if you are interested in making bras!
