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 :)
