As most of our readers would know, I'm not a fan of gyms as I explained in my post on creating A New Workout Wardrobe: My New Year Resolution. But I actually would love to own a sports bra that gives me not only support but comfort. I think this particular item of clothing is the “unicorn” in our wardrobe. Almost like a myth, it seems to be a never-ending search for that one bra that will give me comfort while securing the girls during a vigorous workout. However, look no further….. the Ultimate Sports Bra Pattern does exist –although you may have to make it yourself.
This project is for making a race back sports bra pattern with a front facing for extra comfort and the ability to insert pads. There's also a 1″ under-chest band for maximum support.
- Two yards (more if you are 3XL) Fold over elastic for bra 5/8″ or fold over elastic in 3/4″
- Ball point needle #10
- Thread to match
- 1/2 yard Spandex/nylon 4-way stretch, Lycra milliskin nylon Spandex
- Rotary cutter (optional, but highly recommended)
- Serger/Overlocker (optional)
