Possible questions

Will there be more sizes?

Yes. Package 2 and 4 are on their way! Follow us closely to know when those packages launch.

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?

Yes, you can give this a try. Follow the construction exactly and only skip inserting underwires. Skip the underwires, but NOT the underwire casing. The channeling adds structure to the bra, even without the wires in.

Can I make the pattern with foam?

Yes, you can! The round shape effect should work even better with foam.

Can I use your pattern in a workshop?

Please consult the Terms of Use for PDF patterns for allowed usage based on the pattern license type.

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.
