Bra Pattern, Amethyst Lace Bra pattern features an off-set vertical seamed cup for the roundest styling, and a shortened upper cup for maximum lift (push-up look).

Bra Pattern, Amethyst Lace Bra pattern can be made with or without underwires. The Amethyst Lace Bra Pattern has been specially designed to use with foam lining, which allows the use of virtually any stretch fabric over it as a cup cover. It can even be made without foam, using low-stretch fabrics or fabrics lined with Sheer Cup Lining.

The Amethyst Lace Bra pattern has a band made from lace edging, so the scallops of the lace actually follow the contour of the bottom edge. The center front seam will allow you to mirror the lace perfectly on both sides of the frame. The lace edging is also used along the neckline of the upper cup where the scallops peek out over the foam lining. Also, the strap extension allow sports lace edging, which makes the Amethyst the most lace-intensive bra pattern in the Bra Makers Supply collection.

Pattern Sizes:

This pattern uses a unique sizing system, called the Bottom Cup Depth Sizing Method (BCD).  All BCD sizes from 2.25 through 7.5 are included in this one pattern which offers the equivalent of over 100 ready-to-wear sizes. This includes the “in-between” sizes that ready-to-wear does not carry!

While wearing your best-fitting non-padded bra, be sure to hold the tape flat against your body and do not twist. Measure your BOTTOM CUP DEPTH, which is the measurement from the apex seam following the curve of the breast down to the seam at the wireline on the lower cup pattern piece – that is the Bottom Cup Depth. This number (in inches) is the pattern size you will use. For example, if you measure 5.25” BCD, you will trace the 5.25 size for all pieces.

Next, measure your RIB CAGE, pulling the tape snug against the skin but not tight. If you measure 34” on the rib cage, you will trace to the line marked 34 on the 5.25 band pattern piece.
