The Knock-Off Bra & the Lingerie Course

During the last weeks I’ve been attending to a Lingerie Course at Rosascrafts, with Lola Mata as teacher. It’s been really fun and I’ve learned a lot of things, while filling my lingerie drawer with hundreds of new bras and panties! 😉

As a final exercise to this first part of the course, we had to reverse engineering a RTW bra. In my case the Chosen One was a H&M soft bra, with a pretty design but some peculiar colours… It was pale pink (like baby-bedroom-pink) trimmed with light BROWN lace. Seriously, brown. I like brown, but, I mean, NOT for lingerie. Not THAT brown paired with THAT pink. (Dear H&M designers, what the **** were you thinking??!)

Anyway, since I didn’t take any photos of “The Thing” (your eyes should thank me), you’ll only have my version of it:

  1. Pattern modification + cutting

First, draw a line on the back piece and cut it. Then, add 1/6” seam allowance to the pieces:
