Pattern Description:

This is an amazing pattern based on a vintage lingerie set from a 1950's French magazine. The bra can be made in two ways, either the long or short line version. The long-line/ corselet version has a side closure and is intended for added support and avoiding any unsightly bulges under one's clothes.
The regular bra has a back closure.
