Anybody bored of bras yet? No? Good, then I will begin, here’s my latest offering. I wanted to make something that would match the Lilac lingerie collection that I made for my BTEC course. I still have some silk and lace left over, so I made up another Balconette bra. I’ve not been using any commercially available patterns for the bras I’ve made recently, instead I have been using the patterns that my teacher gave me and used for her collections when she was a lingerie designer. The only problem with that is this a 36C, so at some point I’m going to have to work out how to grade bra patterns and make my own custom fit pattern.
Of the three bras I’ve made recently, this is definitely my favourite.
Lilac Silk Satin (Fabrics Galore) and Black Chantilly Lace (Macculloch & Wallis).
Black Picot edge elastic and Black powernet. Adjustable and removable straps.
Matching Rouleau bow trim
