Hi there! If you remember the first post of this series, you already know what power bars are and why do we use them. In the next posts we’re going to see how to draft and sew the different types of power bars, using a basic bra pattern as our basis. Today’s post will cover the drafting, cutting and sewing of the internal power bar. Let’s begin! 😉
Drafting the Internal power bar
This type of power bar is the easiest to draft: simply, draw a straight line from the strap attachment on your bra pattern, down to the lower cup of the bra. It could end almost wherever you want, but it should not go past the notch that is usually below the apex of the bra (See the images below).
