Okay so I figure its about time I started posting some of my projects and getting some input from ppl....I've been sewing for several months now and still getting the hang of it since it'd been at least 10 yrs since I had last used a machine etc....

anyway, I started off with just a plain black bra



added some cherry material to it



and the bottom of a jacket dress I'd made many yrs ago but never finished and voila...keep in mind its not fully done..I still need to hem it and do some final things but you get the general idea..

Very nice job ......recon the bra...can never get the cups right.  Let someone else to the hard work. Cover and go....I have done that with worn out wallets, when you can not clean them anymore.

That's really cool!  It's sexy and cute, and bra-top dresses are so easy to wear.  Having the bra attached can help the dress stay in place.  Great job  Wink

I have been thinking in that for a long time, but never tought that results were that amazing, you did a great work, I still think that I could mess a good bra, so I must look for a cheap one to give it a try, maybe some one from a thrift store?

Oooh, I love that!  It's so hard to find dresses that look like that with good support for larger chests too.  I will have to attempt!  To the Thrift Store!

That's such a great idea!  I'm with hoboe about finding sexy dresses to wear with support when you're larger chested.  I'm also afraid of messing up a good bra (it's almost as hard to find bras that fit right on a budget as jeans).  But I'm bookmarking this, just in case I get up the nerve!

this was a "duh" moment for me...why didn't I think of this?  I have a certain bra that I buy over and over because it fits and flatters--why not use it to make sexy fun dresses and tops for the summer?  Brilliant idea!

Do you have a back view?  I would love to see if anyone else takes on this idea...

It is lovely and well done!

That is so pretty!  I wonder if I could feel comfortable enough to wear this if I made it.  LOL! Would probably need some kind of wrap.
