So, did anyone ever try to make their own sport bras?
I recently got into sewing and am now making my own "soffe"-style shorts and stuff but I really have no clue on how to get started with sport bras...
Any tips? :)
If your starting out I'd try making a halter one instead of racer back because their easier. This is based on when I tried a shot at this. :)
Make sure to pull down the fabric as you're sewing, or else the stretchy fabric will have a tendancy to cause the thread to snap, or run funny! I would suggest buying a pattern at your local fabric store if you have no idea on how to get started, or else just cut up an old one that fits to figure out the size.
I would suggest using "four-way" stretch fabric. If you don't know what this is, the fabric stretches both horizontally and vertically. Many spandex fabrics are four-way stretch, some are only two-way. Use four-way stretch for spankies too.
