The talented Ana released her Maya bra pattern some time ago and asked for pattern testers. And I believe that nearly all the sewers out there jumped at the opportunity! So, if anyone of you is thinking about making this pattern, that’s my experience with it!
Well, some time ago I talked about Kristina Shin’s patternmaking book and the first bra I made using her method. The bra was OK: it fit, it was more or less nice, but… it was missing something: it was missing glamour! French Rococo glamour! Marie Antoinette glamour! It was missing lace and flowers and bows! So I had to do something about it: I bought some white stretch lace paired it with pink powermesh and a black bow… and suddenly I discovered that minimalism is completely overrated. Longline Marie Antoinette-style bras are the best bras!
Breaking news: mi sewing machine is back to life!! The parting was traumatic, but we’ve survived! And to overcome my withdrawal symptoms during these 2 weeks, I’ve had a little help: my Lingerie Course!
As I said, the second part of the course focused on foam cups, so here is the proof: my first foam bra!
