The first of it's kind - a bra pattern dedicated just to pumping mamas!  No add-on, no hacks...  It's all right there in the pattern.  

Two sling options.  Full coverage sling (tutorial has instructions for turning it into an A-frame sling).  Side sling.  Either sling can be finished with exposed serging or enclosed seams.  You can make this bra with no slings if you are exclusively pumping, or want a bra for work. 

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!
