From Sewing Machine to Boudoir: The Magic of Making Your Own Bras and panties at home
I decided to take a little break from historical sewing and make some new sets of bras and panties for myself.
I made a flowery summer bra with the pattern MakeBra DL04 and a few pairs of Acacia underwear panties to go with it.
I made this blue DL04 bra at the Ompelino Christmas party where I gave a bra-making demonstration. Once more the material choises affected the design.

I tested the new online course by Make Bra, where you'll learn how to sew a foam-cup bra. Testasin Make Bran uutta verkkokurssia, jossa opetellaan ompelemaan vuoritetut rintaliivit.
MakeBra DL01 in black
MakeBra DL01 has a three-part cup which makes it easy to add some pretty lace details to a part of the cup. I modified the pattern for short underwires.
MakeBra DL03 – A balconette bra pattern
I tried out MakeBra DL03 balconette bra pattern. I used the Basic kit from MakeBra and only added some embellishments.
