I. Can’t. Stop.
Shane asked me how many bras a human woman actually needs. Since he’s known me I’ve been the owner of the same 4 bras: 2 I wear, 1 junk one when I need to wash the other 2, and a strapless. Now I’m basically in bra heaven, right? I’ve got bras everywhere!
This is the best bra I’ve sewn! It’s pretty freaking perfect if I do say so myself.
I got my elastic tension spot on all over the bra, the cup size is perfect, the straps are great! Where everything meets in the middle is perfect, too.
The black power mesh I got from Tailor Made is great – nice stretch and support on it’s own, but I wanted it to be less shear and with a little more nipple coverage, so I lined the cups with some leftover power mesh from a previous bra. It worked perfectly! Added support and it’s got great coverage.
And I’m back to my preferred 3 hook closure. This bra is ACES and I’m really proud of myself!
I also made this freaking snoozefest of a all nude bra, because all my bras are lacy and/or black and I didn’t have anything I could wear under a white or light shirt.
I did a good job putting this one together, too – every piece is a double layer of the nude power mesh I got from Stylish Fabric on etsy. It was pretty thin, but a double layer makes it perfect!
The rest of the pieces of the bra I got from Tailor Made, and it came together really well. It’s NOT cute, but it does it’s job.
So I’ve got ONE MORE BRA on the brain and then I’m putting my bra making on the back burner I promise. It’s just so addicting! Have you tried it yet?!
