I made myself a bra and realized at the very end that the bridge wasn't wide enough at the bottom. Instead of tossing it (or torturing myself by being squished) I realized I could add more room to the width of the bridge. Separator wire to the rescue!
I'm back with the third pattern hack for the Delvine Bralette. I wanted to create a longline bralette with a more vintage feel, and also add some features that will increase support and coverage.
My original design idea for the Delvine Bralette was to have a gathered cup. But after I started adding the lace overlay options, there were just too many choices. I decided it would be better to include the gathered cup as a pattern hack.
In this quick tutorial video, learn how to change the bust dart into gathers, while still adding a lining with darts for bust support and shaping.

Elodie Briefs Strappy Pattern Hack
When I design a pattern, I try to offer four style variations. Sometimes I'll have ideas for more variations, but, for a number of reasons, I can't include them all in the pattern. When I was working on the Elodie Briefs I had more ideas for lace overlays, which will be used for a new pattern in the future, and I also had an idea for a strappy option that uses elastic along the sides instead of the side panels. The pattern was already long enough, so I decided to offer the instructions here as a pattern hack. I hope you enjoy.
