Inspiration for Sewing the Mystic Bra

Thank you all so much for the enthusiastic response to our new Mystic bra sewing pattern! I hope you love making your own T-shirt bras as much as I do! To help spark your creativity, in this post I share some of my favorite styles that you can make with our new pattern.

 

In this bold print bra by Victoria’s Secret, the same stretch fabric is used throughout the entire bra. I always seem to find such great jersey prints but I was never able to use them for bra making — until now! The ability to use stretchy fabric for the entire bra is definitely one of the key advantages of the Mystic bra.

For this plaid bra by Adore Me, the fabric does not have enough stretch to seamlessly cover the cups and therefore you see a dart. Yes, you can make a Mystic bra by essentially draping the fabric over the cup and adding a dart to the cup cover. Yes, a tutorial is coming up!

I love the color of this lace bra by Princesse Tam Tam. Here again we see a cup material that does not have enough stretch to seamlessly cover the cups. With lace, the cup covering process is a bit different in order to keep that lovely lace scallop edge for the top of the cup. We will certainly be sharing a tutorial so you can replicate this look too!

While this acid red bra from Victoria’s Secret may look a bit plain in comparison to the other styles in this post, this is a reminder that when you make your own T-shirt bra, you can use any color you want 🙂 I totally want to make an orange one!

Thank you all so much for the enthusiastic response to our new Lansdowne bra sewing pattern! There are so many beautiful bras that you can make with this new style and I wanted to share some of my favorite looks that you can create using this pattern.

 

STYLE 1: FLORAL CUPS WITH MATCHING LACE

This look is so fresh and fun! Match your favorite boldly patterned fabric with a solid colored lace which echoes at least one of the colors of the fabric (in this case white, but there are many possibilities). Florals are a classic, but I can also see this with tropical and animal prints. You can also try matching the power net of the band with the lace color for a visually harmonious look.

 

STYLE 2: BRIGHT COLORED TONE-ON-TONE LACE

I love a bright and sunny bra, and this style will work with your favorite color as well. Simply use a lace that is exactly or just slightly off the color of your base fabric. Overlapping the two will create depth to the color thanks to the texture of the lace, and even more so if your base fabric is just slightly darker. For a more daring look, you can even try a neon colored lace over a brightly colored fabric of the same tone.

 

STYLE 3: POWDERED COLOR LACE OVER PALE FABRIC

This time the base fabric has a lighter color than the lace, which highlights the lace pattern itself. Here the delicate floral lace motif seems to be delicately climbing over the fabric. Any pastel color will work as a base, as long as it is very light, and this is a great opportunity to use a subtly multicolored lace on top.

 

STYLE 4: ART DECO BLACK & GOLD WITH SATIN UPPER CUP

Geometric patterns can also make for sexy bras! Think 1920s style, with refined dark prints highlighted with a touch of warm gold or copper. I like how making a simple upper cup in a solid dark satin makes the print of the lower cup stand out – you could even say that the print gives the illusion of being lace! The very clean lines make for a coherent and slick Art Deco inspired bra.

Of course we also have some beautiful looks we made using the bra making kits that we created with Tailor Made shop! Today is the last day to pre-order your favorites!

As always, I cannot wait to see what each of you will make with the new Lansdowne bra pattern! Do not forget to tag #orangelingerie on social media if you would like to share your version.
