Devonshire Bra Sewing Inspiration

From the The Orange Lingerie Blog
Devonshire Bra Sewing Inspiration

Thank you for your enthusiastic response to our new Devonshire bra sewing pattern! I am thrilled with the reception and can’t wait to see all the Devonshire bras that you all make!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite looks that you can create using the Devonshire pattern. There are so many beautiful options!

STYLE 1: THE SWEETHEART


The Bahia by Aubade (photo credit: unknown)

Can you believe how cute this is!? The fabric is a printed and reembroidered English lace with a scallop edge, paired with a matching double dose of croquet braid along the straps. English lace is a fabric with eyelet cutouts, which makes it stronger than regular lace yet still extremely charming. And yes! you can have fun with the criss-crossing of the ribbons for your center bows, here giving the bra a romantic / summer-in-the-countryside look.

STYLE 2: THE SEXY SPORTY

To me, the ultimate balcony bra is lace through and through. I love the the tone-on-tone; red lace, red straps, red elastic, red bow. Bright solid colors (up to neons!) add a splash of fun, giving the lace a contemporary and versatile look and a colorful reveal of the straps and edges of the bra under strategically layered tops.

STYLE 3: THE EXECUTIVE


The Nudessence by Aubade (photo credit: unknown)

For the lovers of streamlined looks, there is always the option to go slick and smooth by using solid tulles (they open up possibilities to play with transparencies) – and ribbon. I am also liking the solid, contrasting frame and band, which really highlights the cups.

STYLE 4: THE BAROQUE


The Allée Des Plaisirs by Aubade (photo credit: unknown)

A criss-crossed satin ribbon in the center and a gorgeous, transparent lace conjures up visions of 18th century French fashions. I especially like the layering of differently colored laces, and also how the fabric is climbing along the straps at an angle, creating a beautiful neckline reminiscent of a baroque dress.

STYLE 5: THE MERMAID


The Starlet by Freya (photo credit: unknown)

You can go retro by making wider straps, choosing poppy colors and bold prints or embroideries! Love how the cups here almost look like seashells – thanks to the stark scallop edge and stitching pattern. And let’s not forget the fun addition of the three contrasting bows.

STYLE 6: THE FOLKLORIC


Délicate Extase by Aubade (photo credit: unknown)

Yes! The sky is the limit when it comes to fabrics and lace choices! Here the frame and straps are made of colorful brocade, a pattern reminiscent of the ones found in traditional Eastern European costumes. The lace matches the main background color, the bow picks up on the embroidery, and we have yet again a really interesting take on the straps, adorned with lace only on one side, which creates a beautifully soft neckline.
