I’ve written it before, and I’ll write it again. 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 released The Sierra, which you can read more about on the Free Sewing Patterns page. Three years later – I’m still up to the same ole thing. This February, I released my 4th free sewing pattern, the Barrett bralette, with sewing kits to go along. It has been so much fun (and fulfilling) so see everyone’s iterations. So much that today, I thought I’d share a few. See below – included the IG handle of the person who uploaded below each image.
The bra was intended for smaller chests, but that doesn’t mean it’s ONLY for small chests. There have been larger chested women who have made a Barrett. Bryn, who is @kr0er below, is a size 28G and cut an XL for the cups and a small for the band. There is a women on Facebook who shared her Barrett – she is a 32D, cut a size small, and used this tutorial to increase the cup volume slightly (3/8″).
Thank you all for sharing! If you make a Barrett bralette, upload your in progress or finished project to Instagram and tag @mmadalynne and use the hashtag #barrettbralette and #bramakingwithmadalynne
