Well, I’m not sure how I feel about this one. It fits and I’m actually wearing it now. But there’s something I’m not loving about it.

Pink Butterfly material

Maybe it’s just too pink! I thought it would be so pretty for spring. But I’m not loving it.

It’s the Pin-Up Girls Classic Full Band pattern. I got the material from Merckwaerdigh‘s store, and the lining from Bra-Makers Supply. It’s a cotton-Lycra blend. I lined the cups so they would be non-stretch.

Something  I tried that a little different is I added the strap to the top of the lace. I don’t think I love that. That, and all the PINK from the front view.

Pink Butterfly side view

When working on the bra, I decided to add a little of the lace to the side seam. It doesn’t look so bad from this angle. But that front view just looks SO PINK!!! Maybe it’s because I’m really more comfortable with basic colors and adding something to them like some color in black lace. Ha! Honestly, if you looked in my closet you’d find half or more is black!

This view shows a little more of the Lycra material. Isn’t that pretty? I think that’s why I bought it – all those flowers.

No, I’m really not sure how I feel about this one. I actually wrote this blog once and deleted it because I’m not crazy about this bra. But it does fit, and I am wearing it.


I’m looking forward to something a little more toned down for my next bra.

Happy creating!

  1. Thank you, Norma, or at least I’m thinking it must be Norma. I do like experimenting, and this one is growing on me. I think part of it is I wore black or beige for so long because there were so few bras in my size in RTW. Color is a shock! 🙂
