Bralettes & bottoms

Updated: Oct 6, 2021

You too can make a bra, and you can also wear a bralette!

BraTober is right around the corner and I want to share how easy and comfortable bralettes are to make and wear. Let's make bralettes and bottoms (matching panty) all month and ease into the holidays. BraTober 2021 begins Friday October 8th until the 29th featuring weekly prompts, Monday giveaways and Fridays will host a sew-along from 6pm-8pm (est). Join however you like, register for giveaways, make and showcase your own bralettes and bottoms, or register for the Friday sew-alongs for $100 and learn step-by-step instruction on different bralettes.

Bralettes to consider:

This list is some of my familiar favs and surely a partial list of what's out there from very talented pattern designers. Make whatever bralette and bottom you'd like to make and showcase it on your social media tagging #bratober #bratober2021 #bralettesandbottoms #bralettesandbottoms2021

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.


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.


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

100% Cotton for gusset/crotch lining
