The finished bra!
Lots of you will know that I joined the bra making sew along run by lovely Amy at Cloth Habit. There were great hints and tips and I really enjoyed it. I made my bra from a few bits of silk taffeta left from this skirt.
Bras don’t use up much fabric and it seemed an ideal chance to use up some very pretty stuff. Fitting is a bit difficult because there is not much stretch, so I made a toile.
I made alterations to the pattern and made another toile – hooray, it fitted.
All looks great doesn’t it? Sadly, unlike the toile it doesn’t fit. When I was sewing the cups I think I sewed two pieces the wrong way round so it’s now a funny shape. How did I do it? How did I not notice? Well, I did think it was much harder to put together than the toile but I kept going. I should have checked….
Failure! Never mind, I enjoyed it and I will definitely try again.
Thank you so much Amy, I have been wanting to do this for ages and your sew along made me get started. I really will keep trying.
