This is our basic bralette with no breastfeeding access.  Choose from a short fabric waistband, a wide elastic waistband, or a longline waistband.  This is a two layer bra - all but the waistband seam are enclosed (we added a tip for enclosing the waistband as well).  

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!
