This is a digital, print-at home pattern for an sexy little 1940's style bra. The pattern easily prints on your home printer and is ready to sew! The bra can be made from matching or contrasting fabrics, and would look lovely in lace, cotton, or silk...
1/2 yard 35" or larger fabric or lace.
1 1/4 yards ribbon for straps.
Purchased bra back closure, hooks and eyes or buttons.
The pattern comes with several sizes included from a 32"- 42" Bust.
Patterns from the 1940's didn't have cup measurements. Instead, they
used the full over-bust measurement (rather than your under bust as in
most modern bras). There are notations on the pattern that show where to
add or subtract for a better fit around the breast, but other cup sizes
aren't included in this pattern.
Difficulty level: Easy.
The instructions are in English.
