Sian Thomas Bra Tutorial

Just found this on Youtube, and it takes you step by step through the making of the Cloth Habit, Harriet Bra, which is an underwired bra.

Not a professional video, but a young lady who is making a bra which she will wear herself.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

It looks lovely on her and a good fit..... but I really couldn't be bothered making one.

What a great tutorial! Thanks for sharing, Jessie. Bra making is definitely one of my must trys, as I have such terrible problems getting them to fit being smaller than standard.  <3 <3

That's what I thought until I made one (two now).  They are so unbelievably comfortable - no more yanking down the bottom all the time or putting up with straps that are too short and...... I don't have to have just black, white or grotty beige any more which is usually all you can get in unwired ones.
Life's too short for ironing.

Ploshkin - which non-wired bra pattern do you use?  The restricted choice in non-wired really annoys me!  I've just had a go at making swimwear and knickers and I figured a bra will be on my list next...

The Watson bra is seriously comfortable (the normal one not the long line).
Before I started on the full construction of a tools I made up some cups in a couple of different sizes from a piece of jersey fabric to see which one seemed the best bet.
