The Sierra Bra

The Sierra Bra is a free pattern from Madalynne and is my second foray into sewing lingerie. The first was the Noelle Bralette which I made into a bikini top. The pattern is wrap around bralette with a halter neck strap.

I sourced my stretch lace from eBay, the powermesh and picot elastic from DK Fabrics in Adelaide, the rings from A Rare Notion in the Adelaide Arcade and the straps and hook and eye closure were upcycled from an old bra.

The Sierra came together very easily and quickly. It took me about a day to complete with breaks between sewing. I altered the patten to have two shoulder straps instead of the original halter neck design. The most fiddly part for me was cutting out the delicate fabric as I only had fabric scissors at the time. A rotary cutter had been on the sewing wish list for a while and would have made cutting out these delicate stretchy fabrics much easier. I have since acquired a rotary cutter for my birthday which will come in handy for future projects!

The Sierra is very comfortable to wear. Support comes from compression of the fabric only and is definitely for smaller cup sizes as advised by Madalynne.
