Black and maroon bra

Black and maroon bra
I was cleaning my sewing room when I found some little pieces of black stretch lace, leftover from my black strappy bra. It was too little for anything but I didn’t want to throw them away yet. So I put together some powernet, elastics, and other bra notions to make a new bra.

The pattern is Merckwaerdigh BHST2, which is perfect because it only need very little pieces of lace for the upper cups. The pattern originally has low back that I changed into regular straight back. The lower cups, bridge, and bands are powernet with the bridge lined with non-stretch mesh lining.

The hardest part about making a bra is the fitting. Once you find the right fitting pattern, the actual sewing is quite fast because all the pieces are so small. I finished this bra in about 3 hours and wore it the next day. Here it is with the thong from my black strappy bra that has the same lace.
