    There are an amazing number of links that come up when you Google this subject! I just never thought about it, but it seems like a good option for hard to fit sizes.

    Wow, your work is awesome, especially after the week's post about finding bras to fit properly. I bought 4 with a very good sales rep., and $80 later, they ride up my back and annoy me no end! Making my own could solve this problem, but I doubt they'd end up looking like yours!

    Thank you for sharing!

    I admire your skill...very useful talent to have. Much nicer than store bought (even expensive ones here tend to pop the underwiring or look shabby very quickly).

    Yes, I do have a pattern. I buy all my supplies from ndlnookfab@aol.com 316-684-5989
    Anne came to my area through ASG to teach the class. She has been here several times. Check with her to see if she is available to do a class in your area. It is so worth the money you invest in the class. The pattern she drafts will be your pattern designed to fit your body.
    No, I would not even consider a tute as it would be very long and not fair to Anne.

    Of course they would look different from mine. You would choose different fabrics. :lol:

    Should I sew up the edging before wearing them?
    Take a short tight zig-zag at the end of the underwire point.
