What do you need for making this gorgeous set?
A piece of stretch fabric, mesh, lace etc. 30 x 32 cm (11 3/4″ x 12 5/8″)
A small piece of cotton jersey for crotch
Elastic width 7-10 mm (1/4″-3/8″), 4.30 m (4 3/4y)
Strap elastic 45 cm (17 3/4″) x 2
Rings and sliders for the straps
Bralette bottom elastic by your own measurement, width 2-3 cm (3/4″-1 1/8″)
A bra fastener (you may need to cut out two hooks and eyes in order to get right fit, this depends on the width of the bottom elastic)

The pattern is one size, but easy to adjust if needed. PDF pattern prints out nicely on both A4 and Letter size. The 10-page sewing instructions with the drawings, Sewing Bralette & String, are on a separate file, which I recommend to read on your computer with Adobe Reader. Just to save paper. If you’re wondering why there are so many instruction pages for making such a simple set, it’s because of the elastics criss-crossing around. To keep them in order we need clear drawings!
Enjoy sewing and wearing these beautiful pieces of lingerie!
