French Ladies 1950's Pinup Bra Corselet »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage, Classic
Cotton, thread, zipper
What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by the cute vintage suits that are sexy and flattering while still being modest and functional.
What are you most proud of?
I played with the fit and altered the pattern to fit my size, which is not super common. It is hard for me to find good fitting bras, so I was happy I was able to get this tweaked.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Read the sew along posts at http://afewthreadsloose.blogspot.com and http://ohhhlulu.blogspot.com for some good tips on sewing this bra up. Cutting on the bias is a good idea for getting a nice shape.
