The Sew Comfy Bra bottom calls for an elastic 3 cm (1 3/16″) wide
Watch the short video on our You tube channel about wrapping the bottom edge of the Sew Comfy Bra
You can use other widths as well
You only need to adjust the Sew Comfy Bra band pattern to match the width. But, you can’t go narrower than 2,54 cm (1 inch) without compromising the design of the Sew Comfy Bra.
Download the pre-made CB pattern for the elastic widths 1″ and 1 ½”. It’s free.
If your elastic differs from those widths, follow these steps:
1. Make a calculation
If your elastic band is narrower than in the pattern, subtract the width of your elastic from the 3 cm / 1.18″. Then multiply the result by three. This is the amount you will remove from the bottom edge of the original pattern. If your elastic band is wider than in the pattern, subtract 3 cm / 1.18″ from the width of your own elastic. Then multiply the result by three. This is the amount you will add to the bottom edge of the original pattern.
2. Adjust the Sew Comfy Bra bottom edge.
3. Fold the edge as if the elastic were inside and then cut the CB into shape.
That’s all! Happy adjusting!
