Sew fancy

Yes, it’s another Emerald Erin Jordy bralette! This is my 5th and it feels really special. I’ve had the embroidered bra tulle for a few months but was a bit nervous about sewing with it. It turned out to be very easy to use (certainly when compared with stretch mesh!) and this bralette went from idea to wearable in about 2 and a half hours. I still refer to the instructions from time to time but knowing the overall process certainly helps.

🧵🧵The tulle, strap elastic, rings, sliders and fastener came from an Elise Patterns destash bundle; the band elastic is from Emerald Erin. The fold over elastic is from thebrashop (a relatively unknown but very good source of bra making supplies in the UK). I’ve found it tricky to source anything other than bright colours or black in wide plush elastics in the UK but the prices and shipping were so reasonable that it was worth ordering from Canada and waiting a little while for delivery. 🧵🧵
