Awhile back we had a lot of our readers write to us to let us know how they were using our men / women pajama and nightshirt patterns and making jogging outfits and shorts outfits out of them, and now we’ve had another round of creative ideas using another of our patterns — the Sports Bra.
While we have considered the Sports Bra to be an undergarment to replace a regular bra for comfort and ease of wear, dozens of you have written to us to let us know that you’re using that pattern as a great fitting top for a bathing suit, a top to wear under those oversized t-shirts, AND that they are being used just as a top. Because the sports bra class is available in both regular sizes as well as plus sizes, you all are going to town making the various garments out of it. Here are a couple of pictures of the sports bra so you can see what I’m talking about.
The question most of you are asking, is where you can get spandex to make them. I recommend Fays Fabrics – she carries spandex in a variety of styles and colors, AND she even has value-packs of end rolls of spandex where you can get an even cheaper price. I want to mention here that for those of you in a sewing business, you can buy lace, trims and the spandex from Fays Fabrics at such a good price you’ll be able to make a little extra profit on your sewing.
Keep on sending us your creative ideas and we’ll be happy to pass them along to our readers.
