a pink marlborough bra

Wednesday, July 20, 2016




I honestly don't know why I was so worried about making an underwire bra. It really isn't that difficult, depending on the pattern that you select. This bra sewed up very fast with printing, cutting, and sewing I did it all in an afternoon. 

My thoughts about this pattern are very simple. I love it and want to make 100,000 different versions. It's hard not to be inspired when everyone is making their own version of this bra right now. Everything is easily explained on a table in the pattern on what fabrics you need and how to measure yourself. I will say that you should make a toile first of the size you intend to make. I did use the suggested band size that the pattern says to use and it was too small. This is why a toile is great! I'm pretty thrilled with the results and hope to make more! 💕

  1. This is so pretty! I can't believe you made it in an afternoon. I'm still too daunted to try any bra-making, but definitely will have to overcome that at some point; it's so inspiring seeing everyone's makes.

  2. Beautiful!!
    It's addictive to sew lingerie, isn't it? And when your me-made bras fit perfectly, gosh, amazing feeling!
    I spent 7-8 months only sewing lingerie, and you know, after a couple, it's reachable to make a self-drafted pattern as well.
    Good luck for bramaking! :)

    1. Thank you! It really is, i'm surprised how addicting it is! Honestly can't believe I didn't do it sooner. I'm working on a blouse next (the fabric just came in the mail) but really want to make this bra pattern again! I've drafted one or two bralette patterns and would really like to dive into more complicated versions. Thanks for the luck, happy sewing :)

  3. Amazing, amazing work for your first underwire bra! My first underwire bra definitely doesn't looks this good!

    Can't wait to see more lingerie projects from you.

    Also, permission to regram this on Instagram? :3
