Exposing the Unders: The Parisian
Today I have another exposing the under for you! And this one is on a bra that was definitely a favourite to many! My Parisian Bra
This bra is definitely one of the more dainty, delicate and pretty things that I’ve made 🙂 So let’s dive in and expose what it’s made of!
An overview of the first page: It’s an underwire bra, and it uses plunge/push up wires- (I used my plunge wires)
It’s a full band bra with the channeling turning away from the cups.
And the primary seam is a diagonal seam from the underarm to the wireline.
Now to the nitty gritty:
I re-drew the neckline to show that it’s more of a plunging style. The diagonal seam is very direct and straight (because the upper cup piece is a straight piece which make it easier for ruching).
Otherwise it’s actually a very simple bra, ruched on the upper cup with the binding neckline edge made with bra tulle.
All 3/8″ picot elastic in black, and all other black accents!
I always find that when I deconstruct all of my favourite bras, they’re all so simple underneath all the little details! It’s just a great way to break down the whole construction of a bra.
Have you used the Exposing the Unders worksheet on any bras yet? How did you find it?
I love to hear from you!
