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!
