I’m hoping some of you can help me with a design idea I’m having trouble putting into reality. I love the idea of the built in bra (like the Victoria’s Secret bra tops) but I’m having trouble figuring out how to do this and get a little better support. By the way, I want to use this for my favorite pattern I call my “jammie dress”…. princess seams, fit and flare style which I even used as the base for my wedding dress last year.
Most of the so-called bra tops I’ve seen are just a layer of stretchy material with elastic underneath. Fine for someone with a b cup or a more “youthful” bust profile but I’d like to have something more along the lines of an underwire bra with darts or shaped seams for support.
I’ve included a pic of the dress but it’s a little dark to help I think.
Thanks for your help.
