Bra-making Class 3, Part 1, By Pauline from Australia
Making Patterns from Perfectly Fitting RTW Bras
For some of us, we have gone through
the frustration of actually finding a RTW bra that is so comfortable, we'd swear
it was made just for us, but when we go back to buy another they have removed
that model from the line!!!! You hang on to the old bra ""just in case"" Well,
in this the last of the bra classes, we can fix that problem by making a pattern
from an old bra and being able to replicate it in colors/laces of our choice
for evermore. Here is what so many of you have been waiting for. Firstly, I
am assuming a prior knowledge of constructing a bra. If you haven't done so
already, then you'll need lesson one as well, but the construction may be a
little different. I highly suggest you at least try to make one from scratch
before starting this task.
Here a young lady brought me a bra
a lot worse for the wear. She's not overly large (A change for me), but she
needed this style again as she has a ''funnel chest'' and this is the only style
that fits her and stays down (her breasts fall out the bottom of her cups because
of her concave sternum). It is more difficult to get a really accurate pattern
from an old worn out bra, but most of us don't like chopping up new ones!
That was just the introduction. On to the real instructions
in Class 3, Part 2!
