Some time in February or March I commented on a BWear Friday insta video that I just adored the royal blue fabric they just got in. I had placed an order some days before to get my preferred wires (Porcelynne) and Angelica and Bodil kindly gifted me with this kit they named “Nadine” (you can get yours here).
Also, I had the honor of being introduced as a “maker that inspires us” by BWear in the month of March. You can read the mini-interview on the BWear instagram site here.
I used my bra block I adapted from a BWear Jessica Bra pattern to fit my own shape. This was the first bra I produced with my finished block and the fit was just spot on! In the future I will probably go back more to this block to make style changes from this instead of fitting endless amounts of bra patterns. Of course I will still buy the patterns to support the designer and so I can look at the style lines etc.
The cups and the frame are made with duoplex. The lace is a darted overlay that is shorter in the front so it looks like a bra on a bra. I secured the lace onto the cup with a few bartacks. The remains of the lace were used on the undies and on the frame.
