In our bralette kits you’ll find everything you need to make your own soft cup bra. There are many patterns out there which you can purchase directly from the designer and either print at home or print with us using our A0 printing service.

Some suggestions are:

The Maris bralette by Madalynne intimates

The Watson bra by Cloth Habit

The Josephine, Longline Sarah, or Romy bralettes by Ohhh Lulu

The Jordy bralette by Emerald Erin

The Mara bralette by Studio Costura

The Lexington bra by Orange Lingerie

The bralette by Wardrobe by me

This is by no means an exhaustive list and we are not endorsing or selling these patterns but they are an excellent place to start on your bra making journey!

We’ve done our best to cover all the requirements for making a bralette but each pattern is slightly different, (for instance your pattern might suggest Fold Over Elastic instead of picot elastic – don’t worry we can swap it for you) so please check the supplies list for the bralette you are making and if there’s something you are unsure about you can contact us and we’ll try to ensure your kit has everything you need.

In this starter Kit you’ll find:


Main Cup fabric: 0.25m

This could be bamboo jersey or stretch lace or stretch mesh depending on which kit you choose and will be the main fabric you see on the cup of your bralette.

Stretch Mesh fabric: 0.25m

This is a stretch fabric for use in the band of your bra (the part that wraps around your body under the arm and needs to be the most stretchy) if you buy the bamboo jersey kit you can use the bamboo jersey here also.

Cup Lining fabric: 0.25m

This is a sturdy tricot powernet used for lining your cups, depending on your chosen pattern, this may or may not be used. This is typically non stretch and is used to provide stability in cups and the bra bridge where you don’t need stretch.

Shoulder strap plush back elastic: 1.5m

This elastic forms your adjustable straps and is finished with a set of rings and sliders

Rings and sliders:

2 sets of rings and sliders to make your straps

Picot Elastic: 1.5m

This is a lighter weight elastic and is used to finish your neckline and upper band. You can use FOE (fold over elastic) for the same purpose.

FOE (fold over elastic)

This is a lightweight elastic for finishing edges. This isn’t included in our standard kits, we’ve used picot, but you can swap this out if you’d like FOE instead. You’ll just need to contact us at time of purchase, and leave instructions with your order telling us which colour of FOE you’d like instead of picot.

Bottom band elastic: 1.5m

This is a wider elastic with a plush back and provides firm support at the bottom edge of your bra. We have a scallop edge and picot edge band elastic, depending on colour choice.

OR Deep bottom band elastic: 1.5m

This is an extra wide plush back bottom band elastic for extra support and a sporty active wear look.

Hook and eye fastener

1 set of hooks and eyes for fastening your bra. Either 2 or 3 rows deep.

You'll also need a coordinating thread, and a stretch or jersey needle, size 70 or 80.
