Mallori Lane by Madalynne

Have you seen Madalynnes blog? Pop on over and have a look as she has a gorgeous aesthetic, and even better just released a FREE pattern for a bra I have been lusting over!
I just love the straps on this pattern!
I started off making a black version (you might recognise  fabric from the stash) to test the fit. I have a 34 inch bust, so I made a Small version.  I was a bit creative with my construction as the instructions were a bit hard to follow -  the pattern is aimed at those who are familiar with bra construction. I used a fairly firm jersey (with a good recovery) from tessuti and lined it with black powermesh,  I used two layers of the powermesh for the bottom band.  I shortened the bottom band after trying it on as it was quite large! almost reached my belly button ;o.  Its still a comfy fit, but i thought would be better making everything a bit smaller.
My second version was an XS - I think the fit is just perfect!  I used a beige stretch lace over a ridiculously synthetic waffle stretch as the lace was very itchy! For the bottom band I reversed the order and put the lace in the middle layer - I really like that you can still see the pattern! Again I lined everything with powermesh.
Very happy with how it turned out! I'm thinking sparkles next time :)






Its not actually wonky! just how I put it on dear Agnes!
