Pin-Up Girls: Vintage Inspired Bra

Hi All!

You may remember back in March when I showed you all my retro-inspired swimsuit I made at my course with Beverly Johnson.- Well I’m back with more! I’m currently taking her Boobcamp- and this time I brought my mom along! And just like the swim course I’m doing daily blogs to document all the fun I get up to!

But I thought I would share with you the bra that I made today in class- I felt it had a really retro vibe!

I’ve been so inspired by vintage lingerie, I made sure to make a pin board and get some good inspiration for the class- I have a feeling all my lingerie will have a very vintage feel to it!

The course is nothing short of what I expected- amazing- and it is even that much better because I got to bring my mom with me this time! Our progress through the day!

For this first bra I used her Pin-Up Girls ‘Classic Bra’ pattern, and I decided that I would do all this lace applique, because really who can resist this lace! – I did some on the band, and the ‘butterfly’ on the front of the cups (which is when you put lace on the center fronts of the cups and it looks like butterfly wings)

I chose this gorgeous blue fabric to go with the lace, and Beverly has little kits with all the matching findings to go with it- so happy that I don’t have to put  white/black/beige elastics and findings on everything!

I am so closed to being finished this bra! I will finish it tomorrow and put pictures of myself in it on my blog- it will also probably be my me-made item for MMMay14 too! (if I finish it by 11am and wear it- it counts!)

I’m so excited for the rest of the week- my week of sewing vintage style lingerie with mom! Alas if life could always be this sweet!

If you want to check out more pictures/ more info about this bra and my course then you can check out my blog!

I just think it’s so awesome that you and your mom can go to something called “Boobcamp.” And the bra’s very cute.
