Muna and Broad Banskia Bralette

It’s 2021 everyone! It’s still the middle of a pandemic, though, so wear a mask and stay home. Mmkay! 2020 was a year. 2019 was a year. Etc. I don’t attribute any one year to the troubles in my life. It’s all part of the systemic issues that our society has and until those change… … More Muna and Broad Banskia Bralette

Bra Sewing, Swimsuit Sewing, Vacation Sewing

All the sewing in this post! I still have a backlog of projects to share with you but I thought I would share some things that I recently sewed where I have used the pattern before or, in the case of bra sewing, am using an updated pattern.

Drafting a bralette

I have been wanting a decent bralette for a while. However, there is no pattern that goes up to my size. Well…. Seamwork Florence does, but that was a disaster when I made it… I knew the basics I wanted: racerback, non-stretch cups for support, wide elastic band, front closure, etc. I just decided to … More Drafting a bralette

Bra Fitting for People with Pectus Carinatum

Pectus Carinatum, or pigeon chest, is a chest shape where the breastbone is pronounced from the rib cage creating an egg shaped chest where the point of the egg is about where your bridge for your bra sits. It is often described as a “deformity” and considered “abnormal.” It is a chest shape and I will not … More Bra Fitting for People with Pectus Carinatum

Prep School Bra

I recently finished a bra that reminds me of a prep school blazer. Funny enough when I googled “prep school blazer” one popped up that was the exact blazer I had in mind when I put the colours for this bra together. I totally want to make a blazer like this sometime this year, too. … More Prep School Bra

Maya Bra

Oh you were expecting a non-lingerie post…. I’m the worst. I swear I have a bunch of non-lingerie garments to share. I just need to find the time to take pictures. Sooooon. This was originally posted on the Curvy Sewing Collective for Lingerie Month. Today I am reviewing the free (YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT!) Maya Bra … More Maya Bra

Garden Bra

Yep, more lingerie. I am not sorry for this! I love it! That being said, I will have a v-neck Jenna cardi and a Jenna top to share with you soon. This is my latest cloned bra, the Garden bra. Why the Garden bra? I have an entire garden of little flowers sewn to the bridge … More Garden Bra

Seamwork’s Florence Lounge Bra

Disclaimer: there is swearing in this post. I sort of knew going into this project that it might fail horribly. I have huge boobs, after all, and the phrase “lounge bra” as Seamwork calls it doesn’t really fit with huge boobs, even if my measurements are within the pattern’s specifications. I wanted to try it … More Seamwork’s Florence Lounge Bra

Attack of the Bra Clone!

I’m not a Star Wars fan (I don’t mind it, but I am a fan of Star Trek all the way; I prefer technical scifi), but I can never resist a geeky reference in a blog title or anywhere really. Disclaimer: This is the post of lists….. So many lists in this post. I like … More Attack of the Bra Clone!
