I am Picky person, picky with a capital 'P', just ask my mother. As a little baby I was given a beautiful chiffon dress. Mom would put it on me and I would scream. She would take it off and put a cotton dress on me and I was fine. That says it all. I like cotton and guess I always have.
So my second bra I made of cotton. Yes bras need a bit of stretch so I cut the pattern out on the bias. I also did an extension so I could do the button closure instead of the hook and eye. The materiel they use for hook and eye is SO stiff and scratchy! I like soft. Support yes but soft.
Cutting on the bias worked wonderfully!!!! I really
I just don't know about posting pictures of my underwear online though... so the above are snippets.
I found some beautiful satin at the thrift store so I may attempt that next. I'm not sure what I will line it with - any suggestions??
this is a deep salmon color
this is a deep sage green
I don't know if the camera caught the colors well but there are very nice pieces.
Anyway happy sewing. If you haven't tried making your own bras but have wanted to I would highly recommend this pattern.
