1920s brassiere

On Sale
Added to cart
This is a side (fan) lacing and front fastening (buttons) bra top based on the 1920's side lacing brassieres. Fan-lacing is used at the side to pull the brassiere to size. Note that this is not a supportive bra and if made small in the bust, could be used to flatten the bust in true flapper style! There is a standard (small) bust option (cup size A-C approx.) and an enhanced (medium) bust option (that equates with a D-DD cup size approximately however clients have had success with larger cup sizes). Adjust the bust seam for contouring at the toile stage.

This pattern is available as an instant download - you will need to print out on size letter (A) or A4 paper making sure actual size and centre the print is ticked in your print dialogue box. Etsy will send you a link to download the files - please check your junk folder if you nothing arrives. You can also log in to your account and download any digital files you have bought from there.

It is recommended that you make a toile to check the fit of the pattern and use the side seam and bust seam to tweak the fit.

There are no restrictions on the use of this pattern - use to your heart's content. I simply ask that you don't pass on the file or use it to, say, profit from a line of ready-to-wear bras.
