DIY: Maya Bra in Floral Charmeuse

Maya Bra Floral Bra Tailor Made Shop Bramaking

The Maya Bra is free pattern offered by Ana of AFI. It is an underwire style with a 3-piece cup and sweetheart neckline. I don’t wear underwire bras, but I really enjoy making them. I’ve been meaning to make a Maya Bra since its release, but only got around to doing it now. Better late than never, right? 😛

I cut a 32C. I can’t comment on sizing until the recipient tries on the bra, but for reference she wears a 32C in the Watson Bra and a 32C in the Marlborough Bra with 1/2″ added to the back band.

I used the (now sold-out) floral charmeuse bra kit from my shop to make the Maya Bra.

The bra foam is from Make Bra.

Due to the fabric’s beautiful and unique print, I thought it would be really neat if I made matching hook and eyes for this bra. The result looks pretty good, but I think the floral charmeuse is too flimsy and will probably tear in a couple of wears. I will try it again with a stronger fabric.

If anyone is interested in how to make their own bra hook and eye, I can release a pattern and tutorial. Let me know. 🙂
