Devonshire Bra PDF Sewing Pattern

Size Guide
Sizing Information

Bras

I always recommend making a muslin first to test the fit of the bra. This applies not only to new patterns but also to any new fabric you decide to use.

How to make muslins (a.k.a. toiles), a fast way and a more thorough way.

If you do not have a ready-to-wear size or at a loss for what size to start with, I offer the below sizing guideline for my bra sewing patterns.

SIZING GUIDELINES

Difference  Cup size
1" A
2" B
3" C
4" D
5" DD or E
6" DDD or F
7" G
8" H
9" I
10" J
  • When taking measurements, be sure to stand up straight and exhale fully.
  • Measure body circumference directly under the bust with the tape measure parallel to floor. Round the measurement to the nearest inch, rounding down if you are at the ½” mark. If your measurement is an even number, add 4″, and if it is an odd number, add 5″. This is the band size.
  • Measure body circumference at the fullest part of the bust while wearing a bra that is supportive yet out of a relatively thin fabric. Again, keep the tape measure parallel to the floor.
  • Derive cup size by subtracting the band size from the full bust measurement. Consult the chart below to find cup size. For example, if the full bust is 36″ and the band size is 34″, the difference is 2″. Based on the cup size chart below, this difference corresponds to a B cup. If you are in between sizes, use the larger size.

Underwear

Underwear patterns are based on a waist and hip measurement.

SIZING GUIDELINES

SIZE WAIST (inches) HIP (inches)
XS 24 -25 34.5 - 35.5
 S 26 - 27 36.5 - 37.5
M 28 -29 38.5  - 39.5
L 30 - 32 41 - 42.5
XL 34 -36 44.5 - 46

Details

For the Devonshire bra I wanted to create beautiful uplift with delicate lace. The first thing I think of for uplift from a bra are the cup seams and the underwire. Vertical seams are great for uplift and the result of the cup structure with the lace scallop edge is just gorgeous!

 

The Devonshire bra is a supportive underwire bra featuring:

  • A two-piece vertically seamed cup that allows for beautiful shaping; 
  • A cup that can be constructed using lace or fabric;
  • A full supportive frame; and
  • A design that is compatible with use with foam as well as a variety of trim options.

 

Notable Pattern Features:

  • An instantly downloadable PDF pattern.
  • No taping required! All pattern pieces except for the strap fit entirely inside the printable space of US Letter or A4 size paper. For printing ease, each size is grouped together.
  • All pattern pieces are separate, not nested, and clearly show the seam allowance and/or trim allowance as applicable. This allows for construction clarity and simplifies any pattern alterations.
  • The instructions are professionally illustrated, making the seemingly complex steps of bra construction very clear and easy to understand.
  • This pattern was graded by professionals who send their output directly into production so you can be extra confident that you have a great starting point for your garment.

 

Size Range:

This bra is currently only available in A to DD cup sizes for band sizes 32 to 40 and B to DD cup sizes for 30 bands. We are currently working to expand the size range for this style to go up to a 40J size and expect the additional sizes to be available late 2019.

 

Printing Note:

  • Find your size to select which pages to print. The complete document has over 100 pages.
