Bra-making Class 1, Part 3, By Pauline from Australia
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!
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.
Your bra should look like this right side and inside out! Go have a coffee or G & T. You've done well!
