So, first up, another Pin-up Girls Linda bra. This time in 34F and a very nice pink and black kit from Bra-Maker's Supply.

The 34F is a nearly perfect fit.

This pattern is a bit pointy. Thankfully, it's not as dramatic in this size as it was in the one cup too small, but it's certainly pointer than I am used to. Nearing the bullet bra end of the spectrum. I think it's due to the two part cup and diagonal seam. On my body, that probably turns out a pointier bra cup. So, I'll try the Pin-up Girls Shelly bra next time as it's a four part cup (two lower, one upper and a power bar).
The next thing I sewed up was a Watson Bra and Pantie set from Cloth Habit. I wasn't sure how this would look on me due to it's unstructured nature and my need for structure. I saw it sewn up and paraded about all over the net, so I thought it was worth at least trying and getting a lounge set out of. The knickers are a wonderful fit for me. I may use them as my go-to pattern. The bra was meh. I chose the 36D based on the size chart even though I knew that wasn't going to work out. But since the fabric I used was a really stretchy mesh I figured it would be wearable no matter what.

It sewed up really quickly and without any problems. It really is a great little pattern, I plan on sewing up a few more as time permits.
|Excellent pattern placement.|
