Bullet Bra Pattern + Tutorial.

While searching Google Images I stumbled across an image of a bullet bra pattern. Clicked it and found out it's an actual large image accompanied with a full tutorial on how to put it all together.

The pattern is for a C cup so will have to be graded up or down accordingly.

The blog post is here.

Based on the image of the women on the pattern, I don't think it's from the 50s/early 60s, so it might not be an authentic bullet bra, but it's the closest I've found on the net in all my searching.

Have fun, everyone!

A kimono pattern, womens size 14/16

Thank you! x

I am going to make a petticoat with my grandmother's help, and she suggested using this skirt.

(Sorry it's sideways. Can't get it turned right side up for some reason.) It would have to be shortened, but I'm unsure if it will be the right shape. Edit: I forgot to say what kind of shape I want. I want it to be a bell shape to go under a gothic and lolita skirt or dress. Would it make a good base for some tulle or organza to go over?

Hi guys! I'm a total beginner sewer and I'm in need of some patterns. I have a Viking sewing machine if that means anything lol.  I need a pattern for an ipod video case

I also would like a pattern for a messenger bag.
I would like a few different compartments but it doesn't have to be as complicated as this one lol.
Thanks for the help everyone!

Question (Solved!)

Posted by suitetwentytwo on 2010.07.03 at 23:26
I hope it's alright for me to post this here, but I have a question about finishing off an apron edge. Due to different reasons, I cannot use a serger and I don't want to do a zig-zag stitch. Any suggestions?

Edit: I suppose I should have taken a picture to show you guys what I'm working with.

All the suggestions have been great, but the way I have the edge cut (I thought I was going to just serge the edge, but it turned out I can't), some of the options just won't work. Is it impossible for me to finish this edge without using zig-zag?

Edit 2: It seems hand stitching is my best option in order to get the look and have the amount of control I want. Thanks for all your wonderful help and suggestions!

I normally just lurk but have been hit with a problem with drafting and thought you lovely people might be able to help!

I've self drafted a fitted coat, which when standing still, looks perfect. The sleeve lines are where they should be, the back sits perfectly, the actual sleeve looks how I want. The problem is when I go to move my arms. I can't reach forward or up very far.

Where should I be fixing the problem? Do I add to the back (I don't really want excess fabric when standing still)?
Do I add to the sleeve (I don't particularly want a baggy sleeve)?
Or do I change the actual arm hole? More room towards the front? More under the arm?

Any help would be appreciated!

Baby Tuxedo

Posted by iggylani on 2010.05.04 at 00:40
A friend asked me if I could make a tuxedo for her one month old son for a formal event next week (she asked me a while ago). Does anyone know of a pattern? Or, I would like to hear if anyone has recommendations or suggestions for how to go about making one. It will look nicer if made of woven material, but will that be too uncomfortable for an infant that young?

Other than patternschool.com does anyone know of any online pattern drafting courses which are available for free? I'm creating a list (note: I already have all of the vintage books available on vintagesewing.org and the archive.org open library search)

Only looking for full courses, not tutorials for individual items

Desperate for this pattern, is anyone selling one?

Thanks x
