The last section of my Consider Making your Own bra series is based on the inevitable bra alterations one needs to make. Rather than repeat what others have already done, we are covering topics that are less aren't as openly discussed.
Considerations when selecting a bra pattern for a Bra Sewing Novice.
- How much sewing experience one has
- Quality of Construction Directions that accompany the pattern
- Pattern size range
- Style of bra
