Beginner bra-making can begin with a bralette!



Bralettes are the most comfortable way to wear a bra. Yes, you can add a little support to a bralette, but do not expect full support as with a wired bra. Bralettes are designed for soft comfy, knit fabrics and stretch laces. They are also designed giving you flexibility to create your own style.


BRALETTE FABRICS:

Cotton Spandex, Cotton Jersey Knit, Swim Fabrics, Spandex, Stretch Mesh, any stretch knit fabrics. To add additional support to the cups, consider adding power mesh/net to the cup as a lining.


PANTY FABRICS:

Cotton knit, Cotton Jersey, Nylon Tricot (stretch), Stretch Mesh (various weights depending on preference)

100% Cotton for gusset/crotch lining
