A few sewing challenges/goals for 2013 have been starting to coalesce within the whirlpool that is the “to-do-one-day” section of my brain. Here is sewing challenge #1.
Completely inspired by the likes of my fellow Southern Hemisphere sewists Kazz, Carolyn, Katherine, Andrea, and the plethora of international sewists currently taking part in the Cloth Habit Bra Sew-making Along, I’ve decided to join in and make a bra! After all, I’ve made my own undies and bathers before. Time to try a bra – surely it won’t be too complex? I’ve used a few different measurement calculators to work out what size to make, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s the size that I usually wear at this weight! So I’ve bought a copy of Kwik Sew 3300 on half-price sale, have cut out a photocopy of the pattern (in case it’s not the right size, I didn’t want to chop into the original pattern straight away), will ferret out some suitable fabric scraps from stash, will buy some underwires and casing, and will make a start this weekend.
