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!

Ready-to-wear Bra



That was just the introduction. On to the real instructions in Class 3, Part 2!
