Pattern Review : Evie la Luve Jamie Bra & Panties

Evie la Luve Jamie Bra and Panties Pattern Review

Hi guys! I have a pattern review today.

I will be sharing my thoughts on the newly released Evie la Luve Jamie Pattern.

The Jamie Pattern actually has two views. You can choose to make a bodysuit or you can make separates: a bralette and panties. Since I wear bodysuits exactly never, I opted to make the separates.

Full Disclosure: Hannah sent me the pattern for free for pattern testing and feedback. All opinions are my own.

How to Sew Adjustable Bra Straps

How to Sew Adjustable Bra Straps Bra Making Tutorials

Hi guys, I’m doing a simple tutorial today: I will be covering how to sew adjustable bra straps. Sewing adjustable bra straps is fairly easy, but can be pretty confusing for a first timer. There are also many chances to make mistakes that you never even consider. When I first stared sewing bras, I had a few snafus where I threaded the strap elastic incorrectly through the slider. I would end up with the wrong side of the strap elastic facing outwards!

Technically if you are sewing your own bras, you can just cut the strap elastic to the length that fits you perfectly and leave it at that. However, overtime, the strap elastic will lose its elasticity and you will be forced to shorten the elastic when that happens. Otherwise the straps will keep slipping off your shoulder when you wear the bra. This is why it’s advantageous to make your bra straps adjustable–you can just tighten the strap elastic once the elasticity goes.

If you want to learn how to make adjustable bra straps, read on!
