I have to admit that I love lace bralettes, especially lately. But they can be unbelievably expensive. It’s like as I’m getting older I prefer comfort, and a bralette sure offers that. No under wire or tight padding, just soft lace. So here’s how I made my own one.
What you’ll need:
Cut out your pattern (my pattern is quite small because I’ve got a small bust)
Sew the rounded sides together. Repeat with both pieces.
Now sew the bra cups to the elastic.
Pin it with needles again. You will cut the excess lace off afterwards.
Sew the straps to the bra cup first, and then to the back of the bra.
(I didn’t do this very neatly)
Cut off loose strings and excess lace.
And that’s it! There’s your bralette. Mine cost a total of R 47.00! Way better than R600 at Lasenza.
Probably not the sort of bra you’re going to go jog in. But something nice for a weekend with your lover perhaps or a day at home.
This is a terrible photo as I still need to finish it off. But I’ll add the finished product to my Instagram! (@everydayesti)
I’ll be doing a black bralette as well so I’ll post that one too!
