This color-blocked version was my original design for the Desiree Bra. I saw a beautiful, but very plunging, satin demi-cup bra on Etsy. It was lovely, but the neckline on the cups was so low that it would not have been functional for everyday wear. I wanted to replicate the same idea but turn it into something more appropriate for regular use. I decided to keep the plunging style but add very sheer upper cups that would blend into my skin tone.
Here are the fabric and trim details for my black and tan Desiree Bra.
Tan sheer cup lining from Porcelynne
Black stabilized tricot from Porcelynne
1/2" black picot elastic from Tailor Made Shop
Black foldover elastic bought in a bulk spool from PartyEars on Etsy
Beige channeling from MS Garment Accessory on Aliexpress
