I did it! I made a wearable bra!
It might look just like the bra I made before, but this one fits! I used the same fabric for the main part, but a different fabric for the lining.
And I used the lining fabric from the first bra for the back pieces on this second bra. Much better use for that fabric. I have way more stretch, which allows this bra to actually fit!
Lessons learned with this bra: 1. I should use different fabric for the main piece. The fabric that I used is a little stiff. Definitely not made for bras. 2. The wires need to be larger. I ended up ordering wires that were not the correct size or shape so I used the wires out of an old bra. Even those were a little short and moves around a bit in the casing. Not too much, but I’d rather they not move at all. 3. I definitely like the way this bra ‘perks’ up my silhouette – I’ve worn it all week just because it feels so much nicer to have everyone in their place!
Best part: it was a quick sew! I made this one in about 2 hours! Not bad, huh? I’ll definitely be making more!
