It's a Bra Anniversary - Marlborough

It’s a Bra Anniversary!

This month our Marlborough bra sewing pattern celebrates its five-year anniversary. It is hard to believe that five years have passed since we published our first sewing pattern! Since 2014 we have published over one dozen lingerie sewing patterns, including two underwear patterns (the Kingston thong and the Montgomery brief) that I created just so I could have a matching Marlborough bra and underwear set!

While the Marlborough pattern was our first pattern, based on pattern reviews and makes, it remains one of your favorites (mine too!). To celebrate its five-year anniversary, we decided to update the pattern instructions for all sizes to include even more information to help you make your own beautiful and professional looking lingerie. The sewing pattern itself, a time-tested classic, remains unchanged.

Let’s talk about what we updated. First of all, we invest a great deal of time and effort in our instructions to make it as easy as possible for you to make your own lingerie and our unique, detailed illustrations are a big part of that. For the updated instructions, we wanted to make the the illustrations larger, so it was even easier to see the all the construction detail for each step.

We also wanted to include elements that we have added to our other bra patterns over the years including more information on materials, cutting instructions and construction layout diagrams.

Finally, after teaching the Marlborough bra workshop for nearly as long as the pattern has been around, I wanted to streamline the instruction flow and add some extra helpful steps.

    Thank you very much for the update Norma! As someone who sews this pattern frequently for family and friends, I’ve always been a bit sad that my G cup size was outside the pattern’s range. Very excited about the update and really appreciate the free access for those of us who have already purchased the pattern.

    I think I’m right on the divide between your two sizes as a 34e. Please can you advise which of the two I should buy?

    Which size should I buy if I’m usually a DD that sometimes depending on the pattern needs a little extra space? I haven’t used any of your patterns yet and I’m not sure if the smaller size range will fit me correctly….
