Overview

Discover how to make a lace bra with custom coverage and supportive style alongside fairy bra-mother and sewing expert Beverly Johnson. Using your favorite bra pattern, you'll begin by learning how to add lace to cups, bridges and partial- or full-band bras. Love the support of foam cups? Beverly will show you how to use cut-and-sew foam for versatile styles, shapes and sizes. You'll see how to modify your pattern to make room for the foam and get step-by-step guidance for creating a balconette and demi-cup bra. If a seamless cup is what you seek, you'll discover how to choose, fit and place pre-formed foam cups in your bras.
