A bra

It’s been quite some time since I showed some ling erie on this blog. As interlude I’m sewing a new set. The lace for this set was bought quite some time ago, and I waited sewing it till I had my pattern fitting me again, I like it so much that I didn’t want to risk it on trying a new pattern with it.

One of the things I’ve changed on my pattern is the downward hike on the back. It’s a technique described in the “bra makers manual” of Beverly Johnson, intended to make sure the back doesn’t go up. She also describes this here.

As always I’m trying to get symmetry, but did not try it for the bridge part of it. The embroidery is rather full/thick, a seam on the bridge was no option this time.

This set will be finished grey elastic and shoulderstraps, the exact color that is in the lace too.

Hey Sigrid! Making bras, wow! I don't even dare to go there! But this looks beautiful. I'm sure it will turn out perfectly. Thanks for stopping by at my blog. I checked out your sewing tutorials site and this site is really amazing. So useful! I've added it to my favourite links and will also add it to my sewing resources link list on my blog!

I love your blog and love this bra. I was wondering...where do you get your lingerie patterns? I'd love to make one for myself.
