A classic cross-front bra, with a few differences!  The crossed section gets sewn into the darts.  This helps lift the breasts and gives more coverage.  The Cross Front Bralette uses two layers of material with mostly enclosed seams (the armpit seam is turned and stitched, and the waistband seam is exposed).

Choose from a short fabric waistband, a wide elastic waistband, or a longline waistband. 

All our bra patterns are interchangeable and use the same sizing system.  

Get the cami add on pack and turn your bra into a camisole!

Great bra pattern!

I was so nervous to attempt sewing a bra, but I’m so glad I did! Pattern creator was so encouraging, and the pattern was very easy to follow. The tutorial was super helpful with the construction. I added nursing clips upcycles from a worn-out old nursing bra, and the result is a very functional and COMFORTABLE bra with a surprising amount of support! I am so pleased. I’ve made a second one with a cotton/Lycra fabric with more stretch, and I think I prefer a fabric with a little less stretch (or I need to make the cups a little smaller). Still very wearable and comfortable. It’s such a gift to have a comfy bra that SEPARATES the girls and gives them some lift with no underwire, with cups that fit and a underband that is actually small enough. So grateful that I went ahead and took the small risk and bought this pattern. Do it! You will be so pleased and proud of the result! Now to try making one in wool!
