July’s challenge was all about wearing your birthday suit. No, we didn’t want to you to appear naked in this challenge, but as close to it as you are comfortable with! Yes, that’s right, we wanted you to work with sheer fabrics. There are so many sheer fabrics available for bra-making, yet some of you have never challenged yourselves to sew with them. July was your chance to try them out. Here are Your Birthday Suit Challenge Entries.
This month I have made two barely there bras. One is made with navy bra tulle doubled for support in the lower cup and front band and quadrupled in the power bar. The pink lace bra has a stretch lace, Powernet and sheer cup lining band, and pink sheer cup lining for the cups. Anne was also the winner of one of our random draws for $50!
I made this Sweet Sixteen bralette (my favourite bra!) from a floral sheer I had and lace edging for the front band instead of fabric. I love the way I can change things around with this pattern and it still fits! Christine was the second winner of our random draw for a $50 gift certificate.
My sister is now hooked on sheer!! She chose the lace and I sewed it up for her. This is her new favourite bra!!
Made the Ruby version in lavender, my favourite colour. This is the very first time that I made both the frame and the cup out of the sheer bra cup lining. In all others bras I only made the cup out of the sheer cup lining or the sheer cup lining covered with lace. The Ruby pattern is lovely to wear.
