hi

Just in to say a quick Hi! and show you what I have been working on. Does anyone remember my pattern drafting attempt from a few years ago? I have been revisiting it and drafting some bras. This is a muslin for my first attempt at a basic block for a soft bra. I also made a pattern for briefs – I made myself some underwear that fits so well and are so comfortable. Details in another post…

One thought on “hi

  1. What pattern did you use for your soft bra top? I love what you have done! I do have a sloper and a mannequin that fit me… I had taken a flat pattern making course with my ex but as he was so much better than I in drafting and math he would do my patterns. As he is now my ex, I have had to take over that chore (when I would rather be sewing, creating and designing). My efforts with camisoles and bra tops I found very taxing (they were either princess style or the cup style with seaming). I am a 32D and having once been 300 lbs and now being 140 I find that the bottom of my breast is fuller with the top flatter (making it challenging). I have even made bra dresses around an existing fitted bra (in a color) to avoid the bra part challenges. As a ballroom dancer, bra tops (with underwire even better) and bra top dresses are very useful and great additions to my wardrobe. I definitely need help in the pattern making dept of bra making!
