Item details

This is an amazing pattern based on a vintage lingerie set from a 1950's French magazine. The bra can be made in two ways, either in a regular or long line version. The long-line/ corselet version has a side closure and is intended for added support and avoiding any unsightly bulges under one's clothes.
The regular bra has a back closure.

A paper version of this pattern is available here:
www.etsystudio.com/listing/265154165

SIZING INFO:
The patterns come with several sizes included from a 35"- 38" Bust.
Patterns from the 1940's didn't have cup measurements. Instead, they used the full over-bust measurement (rather than your under bust as in most modern bras). There are notations on the pattern that show where to add or subtract for a better fit around the breast, but other cup sizes aren't included in the pattern.

Difficulty level: intermediate
The instructions are in English.

Fabric requirements: 3/4 yard.
We recommend using non stretch fabrics with this pattern, or fabrics with no more than 10% stretch included. Light to medium weight satins, soft cottons and rayons are wonderful with this pattern.

PLEASE NOTE: There are two copies of this pattern available in our shop. Both are labelled 2001 but feature different art as their main images. These patterns are exactly the same so please be careful that you don't purchase both by accident!

Additional return information

We do not offer refunds for the following reasons:
--If a customer didn't read the item description and wasn't sure what type of pattern was purchased. Customers are responsible for reading and making sure they understand the item being sold before purchase.

Additional policies

If you have any questions about printing:
Please feel free to email us, we'd be happy to help. (mrsdepewvintage@gmail.com).
We get about 100 emails a day so please don't be upset if we can't get to your questions right away. We try to answer all downloading and printing questions right away.

Please note that the purchase of a sewing pattern from Mrs. Depew Vintage entitles you to the following:
- a great sewing pattern that may not be available anywhere else.
- a prompt reply if you have trouble downloading or printing your pattern (digital orders).

Sadly, this does not include a sewing questions help line. If it did, we would have to hire an extra employee and an intern or two. These things would cost quite a bit of money and the cost of patterns would go up, and that would make everyone very sad. If you have a sewing question, there's a chance that we won't be able to get to it. As much as we would like to help every customer with their sewing questions, there just aren't enough hours in the day. That said, you're still very welcome to write in with your sewing questions. We don't mind and when we have a free moment, we try to help if we can. But if you don't get a timely response, please don't take it personally, there just aren't enough hours in the day and Mrs. Depew will crash and burn if she skips any more meals to try answer just one more email...
