I am so excited to introduce you to the new Mystic bra sewing pattern! Whether I am fitting students in my workshops, walking through the gym locker room, or just walking down the street, this is the style I see most often in everyday life. It is no surprise that this style has consistently been one of our most requested patterns. I am also happy to say that with the release of the Mystic bra pattern, we give you the ability to make yet another bra wardrobe staple and move one step closer to an entirely handmade wardrobe.
Using pre-formed foam bra cups, the Mystic bra provides invisible shaping and support underneath even the most fitted garments. Finally, you can make your own beautiful seamless t-shirt bra!
To show you a new bra construction technique, we created this style as a frameless bra. Yes, you can make a frameless foam cup bra! As usual, the pattern contains all the step-by-step instructions with our detailed drawings to guide you through the process of making this style.
One big bonus with this frameless style is the ability to convert the bra to close in the front! Keep an eye out for news from us with the details on that conversion as well as more information on this style.
Now if you have been following Orange Lingerie for a while, you may recall that in the past I expressed some skepticism on the utility of molded foam cup bras. I was more surprised than anyone when I found myself turning to this exact style to wear under some of my fitted knit tops (e.g. thin semi-transparent t-shirts) and for occasions where any transparency to my body could be inappropriate (e.g. dinner with the in-laws). After repeatedly encountering a selection of solid white, beige and black options in the shops, I knew I needed to create the Mystic bra pattern so I could make a more visually interesting selection of seamless bras, especially as we head into fall and winter.
As with our recent bra sewing patterns, the Mystic bra will only be available for A to DD cups in size 32 to 40 bands and B to DD cups for size 30 bands. See our chart of sister sizes if you are looking for additional sizes.
I hope you enjoy the Mystic bra pattern as much as I do! Be sure to tag your makes with #MysticBra and/or #OrangeLingerie so I can find them all. I love seeing everyone’s unique version of our sewing patterns!
