1. Adjust Some Existing Bras

Best to remember that this is probably a practice run so don’t go and use your most favourite one first.

  • Once you’ve got the bra and pattern sorted you can get the equipment you’ll need and of course, a steady hand is advised.
  • Follow the pattern of your choice whether it’s cupless, quarter cup, half cup, or whatever. You will probably need a sewing machine in terms of prettiness and accuracy.
  • This shouldn’t take too long because you have the bra structure already, you don’t need to worry about adding underwire, straps, etc etc. You just need to know exactly where your nipples sit on the bra.
  • Once you’ve created your peek-a-boo delight you can add anything extra you see fit – for example diamantés, ribbon bows, or sequins.

  • You also need your choice of fabric whether it’s some you already have or some new material. You will also need all the bits to make the bra such as hook and eye fastening and underwiring.
