How to Make Custom-Fit Bras & Lingerie
by Don McCunn

Design Variations

How to Make Custom-Fit Bras & Lingerie shows how to create patterns for garments that cover a woman's body and, when necessary, support the bust. While comfortable support is a primary function for a bra, when a garment uses these patterns for outerwear, the need for a separate bra is no longer necessary.

Some of the garments used to illustrate this process require special construction techniques. So sewing instructions are included in addition to the patterns for the example garments below. These examples may be made as shown or the techniques can be applied to create original designs.
