Esplanade test bra

This is my test Orange Lingerie Esplanade test I made in February this year.
All the notions used on this version were in my stash. Yes. Even the hook and eye tape.
What you might notice on the insides are the cups are lined. I prefer having cups lined.
The other aspect you’ll notice is the front lace is lined with power mesh.

Lastly, the bias seam finishes were a finished separately to the plush elastic.
This second Esplanade has the bias seams finished under the plush elastic. I like this finish better.

The key pattern adjustment was where I took out about 1.5cm out of the top edge of the upper cup.
Next time I make this, I’ll try to get smaller bust cups or flat foam so I can manage the shape better. I will be using the bust cup pattern pieces for a basic bra too. I thinks this will be a handy bra for the Summer to wear under strappy dresses.
