|Pattern Description: |
Bra pattern for a 3 piece cup and underwired bra
Cup Sizes D to F
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like a three piece cup on a bra but this bra pattern's instructions are horrible. No pictures and even then the instructions are really hard to understand especially if you have never made a bra before (actually even if you have, it's difficult!)
The pattern recommends stretch lingerie lycra which is what I used but it also calls for you to interface your bra which I didn't. I lined it with non stretch tricot and powernet on the wings.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I modified the bridge
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might, but I'd have to have another look at the sizing to be honest. I felt that the bra band and cups have come up a bit small on me.
I like the end result but I definitely wouldn't recommend this pattern to a beginner or a keen intermediate that hasn't made any bra's before. I may make it again, but I won't be in a hurry!
