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!

50 Panties Patterns to Get You Started Sewing Your Own Underwear

50 Panties Patterns to Get you Started Sewing Your Own Underwear DIY Underwear Sew Your Own Panties

Year of the Panties?

Hi guys, it seems to be the year of the panties for me. I think I’ve reached a saturation point with the amount of bras in my wardrobe, so I will be taking a break from sewing bras for myself until I wear some of them out. I will still continue to make bra patterns that pique my interest, but those will be given away to friends and family.

For now, I’m focusing on my panties wardrobe. I don’t need a lot of variety–I’m mostly looking to sew up bikinis and maybe some hi-waisted panties.

However, if you are looking for more variety in your underwear wardrobe, I’ve got you covered! Below is a round up of 50 panties patterns in a variety of cuts and styles. I’ve broken them down into categories so you can easily locate the cut you’re looking for.

Previously, I did a round up of 5 Free Underwear Sewing Patterns on Maker Style’s blog as a guest post. If you are an absolute beginner and you find this list overwhelming, I would check that list out first.

Notes: Patterns that are free are indicated. Patterns are in U.S. Sizing unless otherwise noted.
