DIY: Mint Marlborough with Partial Band

January 24, 2016

Mint Marlborough Bra Tailor Made Shop Bra Making

A partial band bra has been on my to-do list since I watched the chapter on partial band conversion in Beverly Johnson’s Sewing Bras: Designer Techniques Class on Craftsy.

In terms of personal aesthetics, I love partial bands on underwire bras. It makes the bra look more delicate and pretty in my opinion.

The mint lace I used for this bra is available in the form of a bra kit in my shop. The photos don’t do the lace justice–it’s a really pretty mint. The cups and the cradle are lined with bra tulle and the band in stretch mesh. The pattern used is Orange Lingerie’s Marlborough Bra.

So what do you think? Do you personally prefer full band or partial band on underwire bras? Share in the comments below.
