Maya cup was designed for full round breast tissue. And this applies to the upper part of the cup too. What this means is for some of the sewing ladies the cup is not filled completely. Today we tackle how to cleanly adjust the upper cup.
All my posts that teach sewing are gathered under this category. Sewing tutorials for a lot of topics. What you’ll find here are: how to sew garments, how to adjust or draft patterns. And more.
Print the pattern. For each pattern you will have a number of pages. Pages must be aligned by a scheme and taped together.
Use a home printer, or a copy shop printer with A4 or Letter print sheet. Not all printers have all the settings I’m going to show you.
I thought I’d put together a list of possible alterations for a bra pattern. This is not a complete list, but it’s just the beginning.
Brand new piece and it’s broken. Well, I’m going to fix this and I’ll show you how. You’ll be needing decoration trims and a piece of fusible interfacing.
Besides elastics, I think the most important part on a bra, is the cup-band seam. Before going any further, let’s check again if cups are aligned right.
Take the cup, choose the right place on the cradle. We will be pining the cradle to the cup in critical points. Will be doing that to fix the cup position.
We are going to sew curved seams which many of you know, are quite tricky. That’s why before the actual sewing we have to prepare the cradle.
By now we have the cradle and the wings (cut from lace). Remove pins and paper. Split back wings and place them to the corresponding side.
