Allie Sports Bra Pattern
The Allie Sports Bra Pattern includes several features to keep you supported during your favorite activities. At the same time, the pattern is dressy enough to wear as a cool top while bicycling, running, jogging, walking, or during aerobic exercise of all kinds. The front zipper makes the top easy to get on and off and the pre-formed foam cups keep chafing seams away from the breast area. Customers use any solid coloured or printed spandex fabric as the outer layer for the ultimate in stylish athleisure wear. Sizes A-K (Bust 30″-50″)
The Allie Sports Bra has 4 views for the front. We offer a solid colour V-front with zipper, plus a colour blocked v-front. Then (because so many of you wanted a pullover sports bra) we added a scoop neck pullover in both solid colour and a scoop neck with colour blocking. There are two different back options as well – a racer back option and a scoop back option. Either back option can be used with any of the front options.
The Allie Sports bra has an exclusive foam cup template to make positioning the foam cups a breeze! Trace the foam cup template right onto the front of your traced pattern. That horseshoe-shaped template is the cutting line for the foam cup. Once the fabric cut and the hole is cut for the cup, you simply place the foam cup on the table “hump” side up, then lay the lining of the sports bra over top. Pin all around and stitch it in place with a zig-zag or three-step zig-zag stitch. It’s that easy! No more guessing where the cup should sit!
Please note that the Allie Sports Bra Pattern is an updated version of our Alison Sports Bra Pattern, and will replace this pattern. For more details please see our blog post Allie vs. Alison.
