After two weeks of not sewing, my interest was finally rekindled. I bought a couple of bra patterns and started working on one.

I’m just using what I have on hand which is power mesh and a green knit I used on the boy’s Aquaman pants. So glad I didn’t throw out those scraps.


I’m planning on using an old bra for parts (really just the underwire) and adding boning to the front center and sides since this is a longline.

But honestly, this is starting to look like swimwear. I guess the style straps I use as well as the back closure will either say lingerie or bather.

I’m happy I felt that urge to sew. It was really nice. Thanks to everyone who has been gently assuring me this day would come. I really appreciate it.
