Hi, All!
Been working with a life sized pattern for ladies lingerie to try and get a workable mini pattern.
I just can’t get the proportion of the bra cups correct to make them curve out.
You may have better luck than I.
Here is the pattern I am trying to adapt:

Also, this one:

If you want really spectacular mini lingerie, check out this blog and etsy shop:
She is also on Pinterest:
Over the past year or so I have been able to acquire a modest collection of Marlies bra and panty sets.

Absolutely gorgeous! Her work is so neat and precise. I’ve never seen any others to beat it. My pictures do not do them justice.

The bra actually opens in the back with tiny hooks. She even makes a matching box for them! Just beautiful!

I don't think I will ever achieve Marlies' results but we can try, can't we?

At least now you have a pattern to practice on.....

See you again soon!


  1. What a FABULOUS COLLECTION of lingerie you have! The idea of the bra actually having tiny hook fastenings is INCREDIBLE! What such fine examples I have no doubt that you will be able to come up with some equally beautiful pieces! One can usually finally master what originally presents itself as an insurmountable obstacle.
    So Never give up! Where there is a will, there will always be a way. :D


    1. I do like a challenge, that's true. Finding time is one of them!
      I love Marlies pieces, though. They're just so perfect!
