DIY BRALETTE





 It's february! Valentines day is just around the corner so I thought this Bralette DIY would be perfect for the occasion. It's actually super easy to make and they're so pretty.

You will need
Pattern - Print pattern scaled to fill entire paper. Add seam allowance to the curved edge. Note: this pattern makes a small size because I am small sized.
Lace trim minimum 3" wide- 30" long
Elastic band for the straps - 2x14" long
Elastic band for the waistband (You can use the same one as the straps) - 1x25"
Bra clasps

  4. Oh my gosh, this is awesome. I've been seeing all these amazing bras on Pinterest, but I never see this type of bra in shops. And it looks like even I could make it with my limited sewing skills.

    1. You could totally use another fabric. I would recommend using knit fabrics or something with a bit of stretch so that the shape is nicer. Let me know how it goes :)

  13. Wow this looks pretty easy, thanks for sharing. I am currently obsessed with lace, so it gives me all the more reasons to buy more of it. Wish i would have stumbled across your blog sooner. Take care!

  15. Thankyou so much. My thirteen year old daughter and I made a bra/bandeau top using your template and instructions yesterday. She's made some matching French knickers, and will wear this as pyjamas, so we made a bandeau to which we attached the bra cups instead of using elastic. We love the result. You can view here...

    We used recycled bedsheets, scraps of continuous curtaining and other embellishments that cost nothing or next to nothing.

    Thanks for the inspiration. We might never have tried if you hadn't made it sound so easy...xxx

  16. I've been looking for a tutorial on how to make this kind of bralette for ages! Those pretty branded bralettes are sometimes too pricey. Now I can make and wear one without spending a fortune!

    Thank you so much for sharing! xo

  19. Ahh! I love this so much especially because I've been into making my own clothes lately! I don't like wearing bulky/ push-up padded bras and I always opt for bralettes whenever I buy new bras--so I'm excited that I can make a ton of my own now! Thanks for this tutorial! <3

  20. So is the lace you used elastic or could I use the regular kind that doesn't stretch that much?

    1. I have a singer. I just used a regular stitch for most of it. A serger would work well for that curved part

  25. Hello! I'm wondering why you overlapped the triangles in the middle. Is there a reason for the overlapping? I have little to none experience in sewing so I apologise in advance if the answer is really obvious!

    1. Hi! I overlapped it because I found that the triangles would separate too much when the band was stretched, creating an unattractive gap when you wear it.
