I've been busy over the last couple of days, grabbing an hour where I could, to perfect my bra pattern so it fits me properly. In total I've made around 5 bras and have finally cracked it!!! To state the bleedin' obvious - the fit is crucial, but the UNDERWIRES are the biggest key to getting the cups to fit nicely. Anyhoo - here's a couple of photos. You will notice that Vivienne (My tailors dummy) has a much smaller cup size than me so she's been padded out a bit!
Everything came from my stash. The brown lace undercup is lined with flesh coloured 20 denier. I get most of my notations from Fabulous Fabrics, Ashby de la Zouch. The lace typically comes from the wholesaler who lets me have a rummage when I visit!
I will be making a slip from the animal print at a later date.
If you have been out walking recently you will have noticed all the brambles and elderberries this year. I went picking on Friday as the brambles are just about to go past their best and got a bag full! Crumbles all round for the neighbours. Also. we have loads of sloes to so I'll be making some sloe gin too . Think I've turned into a domesticated diva - I made coconut cake yesterday too?!
