I LOVE the salmon one. Does it offer enough support. Do you use a pattern, or have you self drafted. I keep telling myself I'm going to start making my own.

As someone who is right on the cusp of having to have custom-made bras I must say that this is completely and totally awesome! I've read various tutorials but somehow just can not get wearable results. Do you have any links to good tutorials and/or tips of the trade?

Hey, sorry for being so late with replies. Since I have a B-cup, yes there's enough support Tongue  I would't recommend it for larger cups.
I didn't use a commercial pattern. The easiest way I've found is to take apart 1 side of an old bra and start from there. It still takes a lot of trial and error to get the fit right. The sewing itself is not that hard. If you can sew on elastic, then you can make a bra. I would recommend starting with sewing a couple of panties first to get the hang of it.
Check out the bramageddon thread for lots of info.

Yes, I'm from Belgium and I'll probably move back in a couple of months. I miss it Tongue
I followed a course in Roeselare for making lingerie (syntra-west) in case you're interested and live around there.

Wow. SO pretty! I have been dying to make my own bra, but I want a bullet bra. I can't find a pattern though, and with my crazy measurements I really need one. Love the lace, these look so professional!

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!

I'm in awe of your skills. I hope I can make my own bras one day, because the ones I currently see in the shops in my size are so ugly and uncomfortable I wouldn't even wear them if you paid me. Either fashion changes, or I learn how to do these! Thank you for the link to the bramageddon thread, hehe, great title. Cheesy
Keep on posting more great bras as you make them, and don't forget to bring back all the craft supplies from overseas that you can't easily get over here! Grin

Wow!  You'd never know they weren't commercially made!  Very well done!

These are so lovely! I have always wanted to make my own bras as it is so hard to find good fitting affordable bras that last! You did a fantastic job!
