Introducing the Esplanade bra sewing pattern!
I started developing this bra over a year ago and I kept working on it until I felt like I had a perfect strapless bra. With foam cups and a boned long line band you get great support while the bra stays put! A long line bra is also great for featuring beautiful fabric prints, like the Liberty London print pictured above, and works well for color or pattern blocking.
The Esplanade pattern is available in cup sizes A to DD and band sizes 30 to 40. The pattern instructions include how to use cut-and-sew foam (and has separate foam pattern pieces) as well as how to easily add boning along the vertical seam lines.
Because cut-and-sew foam is used for the cups, you can make this bra using a wide variety of fabrics. Stay tuned to the Orange Lingerie Instagram feed to see more samples and construction details.
Over the coming weeks I will post how to make and attach optional straps, both the permanent and the removable varieties, so you can get more looks from from this pattern.
As always, I can’t wait to see what you make! Be sure to tag images of your garment with #EsplanadeBra so I can see them all!
Happy bra making!
