One of the best aspects of having this blog is being able to share what I’ve learned. After many requests that I release patterns for my favorite me-mades, I caved in and spent many days drafting, grading, photographing sew alongs, etc.

Where can you download my free patterns? How can you join the sew along? What is the hashtag? Read below!


SIERRA

Overview: The Sierra is a halter, wrap around bralette. The construction is as basic as it gets, so this is a great project for newbie sewists who want to dip into the world of elastics without having to think about cup sizes, underwires and channeling. I photographed the sew-along in about 4 hours, and that included a trip from the studio to my house after I forgot 3/8″ elastic. Whoops! Without any obstacles or photographing each step, I estimate this will take you 2 hours to complete.

The Sew Along: The sew along covers how to make the Sierra bra from start to finish in 3 posts:
Day 1: Finding your size, fabric + trims and cutting
Day 2: Sewing the elastic and finishing the bottom edge
Day 3: Attaching hooks + eyes and straps
My Sierra and how I wear it

Intended Audience: Sierra was designed for smaller chests – cup sizes AA-B. The bottom of the bra is finished with a zigzag stitch that outlines the scallops of the lace. With no underbust elastic, the support comes from compression. Your girls won’t try to escape underneath the scallops, as long as they’re in the AA-B size range. Trust me on this one!

 MALLORI LANE

Overview: Mallori Lane is a simple bralette finished with strappy details at the back. Designed for smaller chests – cup sizes AA-B – the bra is available in x-small through large. Note that there is no shaping via a bust dart or shirring. Because it’s free, the pattern doesn’t come with the bells and whistles. There is a size chart, simple construction steps, and visuals that provide enough information to make the bra, but there won’t be a sew-along. I have total faith that you can make it!

NOELLE

Overview: The Noelle is a simple halter bra and panty pattern. The bralette features a racerback, wide bottom band and adjustable elastic straps. Both the bra and the panty are fully lined to add support and comfort. Since it is a soft bra (it has no underwires), it has a forgiving fit. It can be worn as lingerie, a layering piece or as a crop top. Just like Mallori Lane, isn’t a sew along, however, the pattern includes instructions. I believe that if you’ve sewn elastic, you’ll be peachy.

      The patterns were designed for smaller chested women, but they can be tailored to larger chests. An example – for Noelle, line the front with 1-2 layers of powernet (have the direction of stretch perpendicular to each other) and use a 3/4″ elastic at the bottom band.

    Hi Maddie, I downloaded the Noelle pattern and would love to give it a try. Can you tell me where you got the lace fabric for halter bra. I can seem to find any quite as nice. All the lace at Tailormade seems to be narrow. Please help. I think I am going to try this for Valentines day. 🙂

    Hi, I’m trying to print the Noelle pattern from my ipad but the 2″ scale is off by 1/8″, do you have any suggestions? Also the link above for the free patterns is not working. Thanks! Love your patterns and blog!

      I am so sorry about the broken link. I just updated.

      Could you print at a local Staples, Office Max or your local print center?

    Hi Maddie,
    I can’t sew at all! However, I really wanted to learn how to make a halter bra. So, I’m really delighted I found your site. I downloaded the Noelle pattern. And, when I get a chance I’m going to go find 8228! Since I don’t sew, it’s been really hard trying to find what I want and a pattern to make it. Thank you so much for being there and for sharing.
