Give away

No news on the dress from my previous post. I do agree with some of the comments that I should add the skirt part to evaluate the fit better. But I don’t like the top part enough to continue it. I’m not fond of the cut-on sleeves and honestly I think I need to do a FBA to make sure the top remains closed decently. Too much effort for me now, not in the mood for such a complex change.
I did make a bra, of which I don’t have a picture here (time really is an issue at the moment and I don’t want to photoshop a picture). It’s the pattern below, the Sewy Linda bra.



I have the pattern already a few years, made it for the first time more than 2 years ago and didn’t like it that much, though I wondered whether it was the fabric/lace I used at the time. I wanted to give it a try again, and though the fit is OK, I still think it’s not “my” pattern. Time to let it go. Anyone interested?
Sizes you can see on the picture (click to enlarge) and the instructions are in German.
This give away is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Leave a comment on this post if you’re interested and I’ll do a draw on Saturday.

Ich sprechen eie bischen German...okay I took 3 years in high school a million years ago, but I think I could muddle through the instructions :) Thanks for the chance to win a bra pattern!

I would like to be entered in the draw. It looks quite different from any of the locally available patterns.

The pattern looks very interesting. I've never seen a bra pattern with the seaming like that. I'd love to have it. TFS

I like bras with vertical seaming, so I would be very interested. Thanks, katherine

Hello I'd love to have a go at making a bra, I'm a 10E or I think that is 85E or something like that and have a dreadful time trying to buy (at a price I can afford) a good comfortable bra1 My German friend has just moved to Brisbane from Auckland so she can (may) translate for me so obstacle overcome. Thanks for a chance!

Jane said...

I'd love to be included in the draw, I've made the Rebecca (from the German instructions, laboriously translated!) and this one looks interestingly different.

Ruth said...

Ich mochte that pattern! My German's not great but I can follow a pattern. Those vertical seams look great for fitting.

Elizabeth said...

Id be interested to try this one. I can see some interesting variations in my mind with different fabrics.

It does look neat---I'll throw my hat in (although it's probably not wise...). Unintelligible instructions have never stopped me yet...

Jodie said...

I'd like to be entered in the draw. I don't speak german, but can find someone to help with that part. I've made bras before, and the pattern seems quite different from what I can get here.
Thanks for the chance

It would be interesting to have a try at sewing underwear and the pattern looks very nice.
