This pattern is thought and designed for both beginners and experienced sewers:

WHAT SETS THIS PATTERN APART
- it has all the pieces, even for the tiny curvy lace decorations
- it’s not just a pattern, it teaches various construction techniques
- afraid you’ll lose illustration details if printed in black and white? no need! the pattern was designed to be printed either in color, or black and white
- the cup is designed for very easy alterations (easier to chop off than to figure out where and how to add)
- afraid of sewing curves? no need! this cup has the easiest curves to sew
- unique band shape designed for optimal support
Will there be more sizes?
Development for the next size packages is postponed for the moment. No certain answer can be given.
I can’t print the pattern. The operation fails or the printer outputs an error. What to do?
If you’re printing the pattern pieces, please print your size only. If you’re printing the construction guide, due to the fact that the file is full of images, the printer may not be able to print all at once. Try printing in batches, like 10 pages each time.
Can I make the pattern without underwires?
The Afi Chic bra is designed to use underwires. I have not tested the shape and fit without them and thus, can’t recommend making this bra without them.
Can I make the pattern without foam?
Yes. Style 1 is designed for no foam. To compensate, this style calls for stable fabric either for the main layer or for the lining.
Can I use your pattern in a workshop?
I can’t use any translation tools to translate the instructions
Please note that due to the increasing number of scammers, to protect ourselves to some degree, the file allows reading and printing access only. Translation tools require editing access. If you’re worried about sewing the bra, there’s no need! All the steps have illustrations and you will be able to sew the bra.
