Off-White/Black Balconette Bralette w/ Lace Racerback Detail
Hi guys, I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve sewn something! I have a backlog of cutwork to go through still, but I’m taking a moment today to share photos of my recently finished off-white/black balconette bralette with lace racerback detail.
I’ve made a couple of this self-drafted balconette bralette and I find myself reaching for this style the most on a daily basis. I figured it couldn’t hurt to make more of them. It’s not hoarding (I think). It’s called stocking up on staples. ;D
To change things up a bit, I opted to add the lace racerback detail a la Ohhh LuLu’s Jasmine Bra found here. I used her instructions to create and construct the racerback detail. I think this detail is really cool, but unfortunately it just does not look that great on me. My frame and shoulders are quite broad for my bust measurement and the racerback detail only emphasizes that. I’d definitely use this detail again when I sew for others, but I don’t think I’ll be using it again for myself.
Also! I was in Maddie‘s studio this past weekend to help her teach her bra making workshop, so I took advantage of her studio’s amazing lighting to take photos of this bralette on the dress form and on the hanger. Here are a couple more artistic (ha!) shots of the bralette against a warehouse setting.
