First, I warmed up by sewing a woven muslin for a lovely pajama set (Fifi Pyjamas by Tilly and the Buttons). It's a graceful design. Also, the instruction booklet is gorgeous and detailed.
I think I will wait to sew this in my final fabric once I've had some practice sewing bras. Even with the bust adjustment, I think I could improve upon it for my own figure. Maybe some powermesh lining in the cups? I'm not sure. Woven camisoles don't work for me up top, but it is a lovely design, so I'd like to find a way to make it work.
Also pictured is a bra kit from Tailor Made Shoppe. The materials are beautiful. And intimidating. Soft, stretchy and very puzzling, as I've never made a bra before. I felt so daunted, but then a day later it became a bra! I'll tell you about it next.
