Join the Va-Voom Bullet Bra Sew-Along

Wednesday, October 9, 2013




After many months of drafting, testing, fitting and tweaking, the Va-Voom Bullet Bra pattern is finally finished and ready to share.  Join me on Saturday the free pattern download and day 1 of the sew-along.

The pattern is currently available in cup sizes C and DD. The B and D cups will follow.  At the end of the sew-along we'll have an easy tutorial for making your own bullet bra pads as well!

Materials

1 Yard of fabric- you can use all kinds of fabric for this project. I used cotton for my first two bras but flannel backed satin would be a comfortable and beautiful choice as well.
A spool of thread to match or contrast.
Purchased bra straps
A purchased bra closure

Supplies
Scissors
an iron
pins
pinking shears
a hand sewing needle


Post photos of your bra projects and bra inspiration in the group pinterest board, "Va-Voom Bullet Bras".
 To join, comment on any pin on the board and I will add you!

  1. oh this looks lovely. I'd love to join in the sew along, but I'm a G cup. I realise it's almost impossible to cover everyone's sizes though, so I shall just enjoy watching everyone elses creations.

  2. Looks like a lot of fun, but unlike Jeanette, I'm at the opposite end of the "scale" (A cup). I agree with Jeanette totally, and I'd love to see the tutorial / sew-along and all of the wonderful finished products! :)
    Happy sewing!

  3. Oooo, I'll be sure to download the pattern!!!! I don't know when I can get to sew this, but I definitely want to. No matter how much I reason, I just can't afford a repro bullet bra.

  11. Yesssss!!! I've been thinking about attempting a bullet bra for ages, I wish I was at home to do this right now but once I'm back I am 100% doing this!!!

  12. Seriously cool idea! I adore the gorgeous floral print fabric you went with for your new bullet bra (I'd love a kitchen or bedroom in that same colour palette).

  14. I've been so excited for this since you first posted about making the pattern! I'm so not a social media maven and I'm a complete and total pinterest failure (that's quite embarrassing to admit, really) but I'll try to sew along quietly in the background. :)

  16. Cool idea. Now the pads mentioned . . . would they make the bullet less pointy? As a "D" or maybe even "DD" lady I am wondering why I would use pads? I have an assembly this Saturday and Sunday but surely hope I can join in when I get home in the evening! :-)

  31. I've never done a sewalong - I'm totally in! I am a DDD/E/F though, so I'll have to take some measurements of some bras I already have for some adjustments.

  32. I'm looking forward to the sew along. I'm an F cup (uk - if there's any difference to US sizing? :-/ ) Will there be any instructions on how to upscale the cup size in the future? I've been looking forward to you putting this on your blog for ages. Hope it all goes well! :0)
