Elastic Through Slider/Ring - 5 Pictures Going Through Process

Thread strap elastic through one side of the slide and down the other (Step 1), then thread through the ring on the bra from FRONT to BACK and pull through (Step 2).

Step 1

Step 2

Take elastic up through slide (2 bits of elastic in same spot) the side where you went through first- but you're coming in from the other direction (Step 3), then down the other side of the slide (Step 4).

   
Step 3

 

 

Step 4

Stitch the end to the back elastic (the bit that will sit on your skin). I sew a long bar tack here as well (Step 5). If you sew it to the front elastic it won't adjust. This is hard to explain, but if you look at the pictures and get a bra out, you can check out how it's done!

Step 5

Last Step - sew on a tiny bow or tiny embellishment of your choice to CF seam. I like to use a diamante!

Finished Bra

All done! Pat yourself on the back! Now go wear it in comfort.

Bras are very hard to "fit" in the traditional manner as you can't really see where they need adjusting until they are together. The cups can be altered slightly before you topstitch and the bra strap position altered. Wear it and take note of where the adjustments need to be made. Alter your pattern, and make another one. The next should be absolutely perfect, if the first one wasn't!
