Hi! My name is Lydia Easley and I am a sewist of intermediate ability with an interest in anything textile or paper-crafting related. I grew up sewing doll clothes, and then my own clothes before passing on to other hand-work and quilting.  Recently, I was in need of a new bra and decided to try making one.

Bra by Lydia Easley

This pattern was a pdf download from Orange Lingerie and is their Marlborough style and it is wonderful!! The directions are very clear and easy to follow, and the customer service is spectacular, as I had some questions regarding sizing before I ordered the pattern. Highly recommend!

My bra-making materials came from Bwear.se out of Sweden. (I live in Europe.) They were perfect for this first foray into sewing intimates. I did also supplement the directions by watching the same Marlborough bra tutorial on Youtube by Liz Sews, but the printed directions are super understandable and clear.

If you are a curious sewist, definitely give lingerie sewing a try. It’s easier than you think!

Thank you!

Lydia Easley

Does this bra pattern require underwire? I’m trying to stop using the wires

Does this bra pattern show a minimizer cup. I have large, heavy breasts and try not to make them obvious.
