Starting Small Making a Bra
Last Sunday I made a bra using a Collete pattern called Nutmeg. The bra I made is more like a bra to wear under semi-see through shirts, so I wanted it to be pretty. I have a few shirts and it is nice to wear something cute underneath. I used two different fabrics: a silky one for the top and a cotton on for the bottom of the bra. I also used elastic around the bottom and the straps are all made out of ribbon and tie in the back. It is a little big and I should have used a little less elastic, but overall I think it turned out well for making it in an afternoon. The pattern also, has little shorts you can make. I might make some to go with it.
