This is a digital, print at home sewing pattern for an sexy little 1940's style bra. The pattern is full sized and ready to cut sew! The bra can be made from matching or contrasting fabrics, and would look lovely in lace, cotton, or silk...

Fabric Requirements:
1/2 yard 35" or larger fabric or lace.
1 1/4 yards ribbon for straps.
Matching thread.
Purchased bra back closure, hooks and eyes or buttons.

The pattern comes with several sizes included from a 32"- 42" Bust.

Patterns from the 1940's didn't have cup measurements. Instead, they used the full over-bust measurement (rather than your under bust as in most modern bras). There are notations on the pattern that show where to add or subtract for a better fit around the breast, but other cup sizes aren't included in this pattern.

Difficulty level: Easy.
The instructions are in English.
