This is my second bustier top. (The first bustier top was practice for this one.)
My sister ordered this top (and a black lycra high waisted skirt and bottoms). She's expecting a new baby soon and wanted something modest, supportive, and comfortable to wear to the beach or in-laws pool.
I used size 80 for the cup size. The straps and back band are adjustable.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
The directions are limited but if you're an advanced sewer you should have no problem!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really love this pattern!
I think this design is very flattering on women. I'm surprised more women don't wear these!
It was a poly/rayon. I recently tested the first bustier top and this fabric worked really well in the sun, water, and chlorine
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added boning to the side and bust.
The straps are adjustable using s hooks and rings.
The back band is tie.
(It was important for me to make the bustier top adjustable because my sister's size will fluctuate over the next few months.)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely! I already have a few pending orders from friends
Give this pattern a try! It uses less than a yard, so you have nothing to lose!
