How to Make Custom-Fit Bras & Lingerie
Drawing on a decade's experience teaching online classes, this compendium of pattern making and sewing instructions by Don McCunn provides instructions for making five kinds of bras - conventional, bikini, bandeau, bust sling, and athletic - as well as fitted and bikini briefs and thongs; swimsuits and leotards. Furthermore, McCunn provides instructions for combining the bra with skirt patterns to make Empire-waistline sleepwear, tops, dresses, even wedding gowns.

"An invaluable guide for making clothes and lingerie that fit a real body rather than the measurement system of standard commercial patterns. The instructions are clear and provide many tricks for a person fitting herself."
