Hi guys, quick update today. This aqua set features the Madalynne 8229 Underwire Bra with vertical seams and Evie La Luve’s Bella Panties. Since I’ve made them before, there’s not much to say about them. I just wanted to share photos of them in case people are curious about how this lace looks made up.
A couple of things abut this pattern. It’s definitely not beginner friendly! I think the instructions are kind of sparse, so I would not attempt this pattern until you’ve made a few bras. The other thing is that there are no built-in seam allowances or elastic allowances–you have to add them yourself.
I can’t comment on the fit until the recipient tries on the bra, but I love that it’s really different from any bralette pattern out there currently. I have plans to make more of this view because I like how it integrates the lace scallop edge on the straps and side cups.
Of course, I couldn’t resist making matching Bella Panties as well.
I’m back today with my second iteration of the Edena Bralette. You can find the first iteration here.
For this version, I used a black non-stretch lace that I had in my stash and lined it with black bra tulle. I also used black satin elastic for the straps and the strappy detail. I opted to use a fun lavender picot elastic for contrast.
Some changes to the pattern: I increased the height of the neckline by 3/8″. I also increased the bottom band height by 3/8″ so the bralette now provides more coverage overall. I also added the extra strappy detail. Because it’s pretty much a known secret by now that I’m a sucker for strappy details.
I pretty much adore this bralette to death. I’ve made a third one and have a fourth one in the works right now.

Hi guys, today’s post features a bralette using non-stretch lace. It’s a pink poppy lace with only mechanical give.
The pattern I used is the Edena Bralette by Madalynne. Her version involves a floating bridge and underwires. Although the concept is really, really cool, I personally don’t like wearing underwires so I omitted the bridge and channeling and underwires.
I lined the front of the bralete with sheer cup lining and left the back band unlined.
The style is very comfy to wear and looks amazing on. I have plans to make more iterations of this style, with a variety of non-stretch laces. I also think it will work well with stretch laces as long as I stabilize the laces with a non-stretch lining.
I made this bralette about two weeks ago, so I did not make it for Halloween even though the color combination would suggest otherwise!
This is my tried and true self-drafted balconette bralette pattern. As of late, I’ve been trying different variations of this pattern. I’ve experimented with lace straps here and lace racer back detail here. This time, I added strappy details to it.
The result? I quite like it. I might make a couple more like this. What do you think? Are the strappy details too much?

I was also in Philadelphia this past weekend. I helped Maddie teach her October 22nd Underwire Bra Making Session. As usual, I took advantage of her studio’s great lighting to take some photos. It was actually rainy and overcast, but I really like the mood of these photos.
