I want to try my hand at making my own bras and panties. but have no idea where to start with pattens..
I need something for atleast an australian 14 F (im not too keen on pulling apart a $50AU bra to get a pattern...)
so could someone point me in the direction of free patterns or a good drafting website or something similar?
sorry if that sounds rushed. my daughter just woke up..
thanks in advance

Check out the Bramageddon thread - lots of resources & links in it.

KwikSew - 3594 comes in a large range of sizes (14 F is included) and is probably the easiest to get your hands on, but I've never come seen good free patterns for bras. I make bras and draft my own patterns (I have a book that explains it really well), I could try to draft a pattern in your size. It will most likely not be completely perfect right away, but if you make a trial version first you could see what should be changed.
Burdastyle also has an instruction for making a bra pattern, but I don't think you'll get a fitting bra out of that in one go.
I know about tutorials how to put a bra together, but not about free patterns. I have made a tutorial for panties, but I didn't scan properly so it's probably not that easy to put the pieces together.

Edit: I felt like drawing bra patterns today, so within a few hours there will be a free pattern, I'm working on the instructions now.

Another edit: I have uploaded my pattern with instructions on burdastyle in 80/36/14 F and 80/36/14 G.

Well, the problem with the book I have is that it's Dutch and although it is very well explained in the book, I don't think you could figure out just by the illustrations.
I've heard good things about The Bra-Makers Manual, but this is only about making bras, not that much about making panties. The books in English that I have heard about that explain how to draft patterns for panties don't have instructions for making bras in them. "Lingerie Secrets" and "Sewing Lingerie" have patterns for panties, camisoles and more in them.
There's also "Pattern Cutting for Lingerie, Beachwear and Leisurewear" by Ann Haggar, but that is only about pattern cutting, with no instructions for sewing and from what I've heard it is quite difficult.
