Pink Silk Bra by KingNapoleon Pink Silk Bra by KingNapoleon
HAH. I don't know about you, but this is how I spent MY Memorial Day weekend. It was dangerously fun.

I hate bra shopping more than most things for a number of reasons, so I've decided to start making my own. This is only the beginning. One of the magazines I got last month had a selection of lovely fancy bras in it, and that was sort of the last straw. I had to have one. Because I really need silk undergarments to function.

Believe it or not, I made it entierly from the waistband of an exceedingly unusual pair of silk pants I bought at Goodwill. The little detail shots are of the back closure and of the topstitching (yes, that's rick-rack you see there). And no, don't bother asking me to model it. I've already thought about that, and the answer is still no. I will say, however, that it achieves rather the same look as a corset, if you know what I mean. Uplifting, if you will. Hahah. I'ma gonna go make another one.

I wish I could wear it, but my breast are to big and my rib cage is too small...

Love this! So decadent. Did you make knickers to match? That would be the cutest set.

Lingerie is exceedingly difficult to do well, and you have succeeded here. All the little details really make the garment.

Wow that is pretty! I've been having a go at the same thing, though I'm still in the pattern cutting stage. I don't have enough patience to do it all in one go so I've been doing bits here and there. I love the stiching details, it reminds me of old corsetry. Did you use underwires or padding at all, or is it just the quilting which gives the support?

There's a little bit of padding, but the truth is that I don't have all that much to support. Haha. I was going to try again and see if I couldn't get a better fit, but haven't gotten around to it. Bras are tricky.

Haha, thanks. I was going to make another one in a somewhat different style, but never got around to it. Maybe eventually.
