Examples


Sew cups into T piece, per instructions, then sew center fronts together. Now topstitch just the center front.

The picture shows T piece with triple zigzag also scissors I use to cut lace trim- a worthwhile investment if you plan to do a lot of these!

If you're wondering about the picture, it was lost in cyber-space. We hope to find it soon or make a new one!

Now this is where I digress from the pattern instructions. I use underwire channeling (casing) to add support without putting in wires.

Fold right cup back so cup/frame seam is showing (like when you stitched it). Place the stitched edge of the casing to the stitching line of the cup, starting a little less than 1/4" (6mm) from the top of the cup but finishing right to end on the side seam part of the cup. Stitch using a straight stitch on the stitching line of the casing. Turn casing into bra and from the right side straight stitch around bra cup to catch the other side of the casing on the inside.

Casing To Bra Cups

Now, if using wires, pattern 2374, this is where you put them in and do a bar tack at each end of casing to stop wire from popping out! NO gaps here!

Your bra should look like this right side and inside out! Go have a coffee or G & T. You've done well!
