On my first post, I want to show you one of the lace bras that I sew during the State of Alarm in Spain. It is a lace version of the Jasmine Bra by the Canadian lingerie designer Ohhh Lulu. I love this design because it is very comfortable, very easy, quick to sew and it gives great support. I have a 95 B bra size and it feels great on me.
This bra pattern needs normally a 3 row hook and eye on its back. The band is quite complete and I have always needed a hook and eye of this size.
Another top feature from this design is that you can make the most of the scalloped lace, showing the waves on the top of the cups and the band. It gives a really nice touch. As you can see, I tried to mirror the lace, which worked for the centre front of the bra but not quite matched on the side cups. That is a matter of practice and paying more attention when cutting the lace :)
I lined it with beige stretch mesh and I sew it with enclosed seams for a professional finish. The technique is tricky sometimes but with practice you will see that it is not complicated. To finish it, I used a soft pink strap elastic and rose gold rings and sliders. I will add the link to those supplies at the end of this post.
If you want to replicate this bra, I created a kit on the shop with all the lingerie supplies that are necessary for it. CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT
