After building up an extensive back catalogue of foundations dureing the past HSF years I erm....struggled to find something that wasn't a duplicate to make.
The Challenge: #1 foundations
Pattern: Used a
combination of 30's and 40s bra patterns in 'vintage lingerie' by jill
salen as reference draping it on the dress form. Unfortunately somewhere
between draping and sewing the bra up I must have made an error. As
although it fits in circumference, the cup size was too small.
Notions: hook n eye, elastic, ribbon, bias binding.
How historically accurate is it? Well I hope it is accurate as I can get it.
Hours to complete: Took me a day and an evening if you don't count the time taken draping.
First worn: N/A as it didn't fit.
Total cost: Practically free as material was donated and the rest were from my long term stash.
