Making a Lace Bralette // DIY

July 10, 2016

 It's been well over a year since my last DIY, so I think it's about time I showed you a little something new to make. The lack of craft posts is mainly due to the stress of A levels, which have now vanished and left me with a lovely long summer holiday- plenty of time to get creating again. DIY posts are actually my most popular type of post for views, so do let me know in the comments section if you have anything you'd like me to share!
I hadn't really thought of making my own underwear before, but recently I've been feeling inspired by The Great British Sewing Bee to get back to sewing and also try making a bra.
Making your own lingerie can be a bit intimidating because lace and elastic can be quite fiddly- especially pairing the two together. However, it was my first time tackling both and they weren't nearly as scary as I thought! Underwear can be so pretty yet so expensive (I can't justify the price tag on the beautiful For Love and Lemons pieces unfortunately) and making your own can be very cheap and fun! You can also adapt the pattern to fit by laying the paper pattern over a bra you already have and adjusting accordingly.

I found the tutorial for this bralette on A Pair and a Spare and she explains really well, including photos as you're going along. Here's the link if you're interested in making your own-
I'm planning to make another one and film the process so let me know if this is something you'd be interested in!
