New bra pattern!
I am over the moon! My new bra pattern arrived in the post today! It was designed by Dini van Zanten of Danglez in the Netherlands. The pattern - DB4 - is specifically designed for larger cup sizes. I saw a bra made from the pattern on Kisakim's blog and loved it immediately. It has a three-part cup with a diagonal seam in the bottom cup, which I am hoping will provide good support. Kisakim said that the bra gives a "rounded" shape (which I prefer), while she prefers a more "pointy" shape.
The three-piece cup reminds me of one of my favourite "inspiration" bras - a Glamorise lace model with a diagonal seam and bottom cup in two parts.
Sigrid recently published a review of another Danglez pattern, DB5, which has a lovely tapering strap cut in one with the side panel of the cup. She gave it a "highly recommended" rating.
I am putting all other projects on hold so I can start making my new bra! Hope to report back soon!
