The Bambi Soft Bra is a vintage look bra featuring a three piece cup which can be easily altered to fit a multitude of cup sizes. It can be sewn in a variety of fabrics, from pretty floral cottons, to casual jersey. If sewing the bra in stretch knit, you may need to size down. The thing I love about this bra is that you can use woven cotton - like all of those pretty cotton quilting prints! Remember to always sew a test garment before using any pattern.

    A great pattern, easy to use and to follow! I would recommend definitely doing a mock up in old fabric first before making your real one. Mine ended up needing a few adjustments.
