What I Made: Evie la Luve Willow Bras in Wrap Around Style

Evie la Luve Willow Bra Wrap Around View

Happy November guys! I can’t believe how quickly October has flown by!

I want to take a moment to thank you everyone who took the time to complete the Tailor Made Shop 2017 Feedback Survey! The survey is now closed, but I will be reading all your feedback and taking notes for 2018 planning.

One of the things that many of you asked for are more bra kits for Indie Bra Patterns. Well I have good news! I put together bra kits for the Evie la Luve Willow Bra in the Wrap Around Style!

The Classic View can be made with my regular soft bra kits, but the wrap around view requires a bikini clasp and an unusual number of rings and sliders. To save you the trouble of hunting down the hardware, I put together kits for the Wrap Around View!

The two Willow Bras I have pictured here today are made from those exact kits.

I have a pattern review of the Willow Bra in the works, but today I will just share a few notes about the construction and fit of the bra. I actually made the Willow Bra up in the Classic View first, but I didn’t get a chance to photograph them for the blog. A friend visited me in September and she ended up taking them with her because they fit her really well!

For reference, she wears a 32C and the Willow Bra in XXS fits her perfectly with no alternations needed. I made the Classic View in Scuba and in a medium-heavy weight confetti dot stretch mesh for her.

For the wrap around views, I made the from scuba and lined them entirely in stretch mesh. All the seams are neatly enclosed.

I only made two very small changes in terms of construction. One, I used a 3/8″ picot plush elastic for the bottom band. A 1/2″ picot elastic would have been too wide for size XXS.

Two, I secured the back strap extension to the top and bottom edge of the bra back. The instruction has you attach the back strap extension just to the top edge of the bra back.

Other than that, this was a quick easy and satisfying sew!
