cool. i have a question about tracing the pattern ... how do you get the cups the right shape without cutting apart the bra you already have? yours is still intact later on, right? but i don't get it because the cup parts kinda stand up on their own.  Huh

I had the shape of the bottom of the cups from the underwire, and then I just made the top lay as flat on the paper as I could and traced that. I connected the two lines with a rounded line, and amazingly it worked!

Argh, attempted and failed. I either put too much added length on the bands or I did not need to use elastic. So now my Saturday will be spent stitch-ripping the hook and eye I worked ever so hard on, and attempting to resize. Undecided

fab.  as a girl who doesn't need an underwire or want padding... that's great.  people seem to think that if you're a AA you need 2384723 inches of foam rubber to feel good about yourself.  i think i'd have a great time making these!

Yeah, Im a B cup, and i thought "what the hey, I'll give it a try"...
I wasted a tshirt Sad
It was definately my sewing, not the tutorial, but the cup thingies ended up all deformed and shapeless, and by the time it got to the point where you needed to sew on the elastic, I didn't want to waste the elastic. It is now balled up in a tiny ball in the bottom of my sewing box. I pray that I shall never find it again.
I think i should maybe try it again when the weather isn't 15 degrees C hotter than normal.
Yeah, I'm so lame.

uber cool, I'll have to try that (being an AA cup that doesn't like padding either).
Did you use a serger or a regular machine to stitch it up? Because t shirt material usually is a bitch to sew properly with a regular machine  Cry

you know what would be awesome. making a bikini out of a hideous old one-piecer.   or making it longer in the front and having a unbearably awesome shirt.

such an awesome idea =)  <333
