Use the same 3 cm wide elastic that you used for the bottom of the bra. Set the head of the elastic under the side boning tunnel and topstitch in place before you slide the bone in. Other head of the elastic is attached under the closure tape. The length of the elastic is the same as the length of the wing.
PS. We added 1 extra m of bottom elastic to our Ulla kit for the purpose.
I’m proud to announce that we have already been following the upcoming rules from the start. The good thing in the new law, however, is that it requires us to make our practices more clear to the customers as well.
We are making holidays! From Midsummer to the end of July we will ship the orders only on Wednesdays. Answering to your emails may slow down a bit as well.
However, digital patterns will be delivered as usual within 24 hours (Mon-Fri).
We still have available places on our courses in Tampere 18.-19.11 and Helsinki 28.-29.10. In other cities courses are full booked, but occasionally single place may become available and we announce it here.
We wish a beautiful, relaxing summer for everyone!
Bra making materials may be difficult to choose. Therefore, we have made your life easier and picked up the materials into our Basic Kit for Bra Making and Basic Kit plus ready for your use. In addition to the kit, you only need the underwires.
THE BRA MAKING KIT MATERIALS
Now, we have updated the Basic Kit and the Basic Kit PLUS. The picot edge elastic has come back as an edge elastic. It bends nicely along the curve of the bottom edge.
Both kits contain enough materials at least for two bras up to size 80DD-95C (BK) and 100F (BK plus). The consumption of the foam is even more flexible. For instance from the foam piece of the Basic Kit you get cups of the pattern DL04 for 6 bras in the smallest size and 2,5 bras in the largest size.
In the information page we have added instruction how to calculate the height of the band at the lowest part of the cup.
We do want the underwire casing and the bottom edge elastic to be layered as in the picture on the left.
