    Where would you suggest we get the rings and sliders without having to purchase a huge amount that’s offered online?

    The instructions seem clear to me (no need to get nervous and clean your floors!). I am impressed with how clearly each step is explained. I am new to bra making so I may have questions when I get started. I’ve ordered my supplies, but they have not arrived yet. I’m using 10 inch lace so I hope that is not too wide. I’m a C cup and hoping that I can wear this bra at home rather than going without a bra. I can’t tolerate wearing a bra for too long and hope that a proper fitting bra will solve this problem. With this sew-along, I hope to get started with bra making and, eventually, make a support bra for regular wear. If the Sierra doesn’t work for me, I am hopeful it will be nice enough to gift to a friend with smaller girls. Thank you for the effort you obviously are putting into this sew-along.

    Quick question about cutting the back piece. . . do we flip it over at the smaller end and cut (so its a longer mirrored piece like cutting on fold)? It looks like maybe and makes sense in my head but I just want to make sure. Thank you :)

    Hi, Maddie
    I was dying to know about back piece since i finished cutting pieces last night(i posted on instagram as well). but now it’s clear. no fold, mirrored piece!! i am going to cut another back piece right now.
    Thanks Corri, Thanks Maddie!!!

    I was warned away from spray baste as being toxic unless done in an extremely well-ventilated area (preferably outside), but the Odif product info says nontoxic and odorless. Is this particular brand different? I have never used spray-baste before, but my local fabric store was adamant about how dangerous it is. For me it means a 15 mile drive to the nearest available supplier so I want to make sure I really want it :)

    Is there a brand/model of duck billed scissors you particularly love?

    Hi Maddie! Super excited about starting my Sierra, (first bra!!) and wanted to thank you for the pattern! It’s made me (finally) put all my excuses aside! The pattern just said “lining fabric” so I ordered some stretch mesh for the lining and it seems like it might not be sturdy enough.I’m about a 34 B, & I’m wondering if I should have gotten powernet?? Thanks Again!!

    I have a somewhat strange question. I have never done any bra making before so I don’t know if this is crazy or not but I have some lace that’s not stretchy at all and I would like to try out a Sierra before purchasing fabric, do you think it is worth trying it with the not stretchy lace or is it just totally different and a waste of my time?

    Hi Maddie I was in Phillies for the last bra making wish can you send me this pattern? I’m hooked

    OK so I’m completely lost, I’m trying to find the PDF but I can’t, could some one tell me were it is

      Yes, near the upper right of the Web site you can click on Patterns, then free patterns. From that page you can click on the link for each of the free pattern styles to download and print.

    I wanna try this out, but where is the size chart? I can’t seem to find it in the pdf where the pattern is on.

  • August 13, 2017

    What are the measurements for the different sizes?

  • November 12, 2017

    Please advise me where the size chart is. When I️ download and print, there are 3 sheets for the actual pattern with no size chart. I’ve actually guesstimated a size XS and have completed all the steps prior to adding picot elastic, but the bralette seems tight. My full bust measurement is 31.5 and under bust is 28.5.
