You asked and you shall receive! After posting so many of my own iterations, and after so many requests to release a pattern, I am finally offering the Noelle as a free PDF. A simple style, I’m confident that if you’ve sewn lingerie, you can rock this! So, where can you download the pattern? Will there be a sew along? What’s the hashtag? Read below yo!
Overview: The Noelle is a simple halter bra and panty pattern. The bralette features a racerback, wide bottom band and adjustable 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 or as a crop top.
Intended Audience: Since Noelle doesn’t have underwires, the support comes from compression and fabric. Noelle was designed for women with smaller chests (cup sizes A-DD), but can be worn by women with larger chests (cup sizes larger than DD). If you are larger chested, I advise to use fabric with less stretch and/or firm lining (powernet).
Suggested fabric: The pattern was designed for stretch lace, lycra or mesh that has 30-40% stretch in one or both directions. Fabrics with more than 50% stretch should be lined with another stretch fabric.
Recommended linings: Stretch mesh, micro mesh or powernet.
Sew along: Because this is a free pattern, it won’t come with all the bells and whistles. There won’t be a sew along. However, the pattern includes instructions, so I believe that if you’ve sewn a bra, you’ll be peachy.
Social: If you make a Noelle bra, or Noelle swimsuit(!!!), be sure to share on social – Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, your blog. Whatever your preferred platform, spread the (bra making) word! If you post on IG, be sure to tag me @mmadalynne and use the hashtag #bramakingwithmadalynne
Free Sewing Patterns Page: Take note for the future that this pattern will live on my Free Sewing Patterns Page along with Sierra and Mallori Lane. So if you didn’t bookmark this post, it will be easy to find.
Can’t wait to see what you make!
