The FCF progress

I've covered the bra.



Yes, the flowers are not symmetrical, that was deliberate, because I didn't want it to actually *look* like nipple flowers! I'm happy with how the covering has come out. This fabric may be a bit of a bugger to sew on the machine, but it is a dream to pleat and tuck, because it's thinner and not as springy as lycra.

I'm getting more confident with the bra covering, I think. I was finding it terrifying before, when I first started on this costume making malarkly, but now it's more routine, and I know I can do it. Maybe that means I'll become less scared of decorating soon!

Next step, cover the neck straps and then attach them.

I'm not too worried about getting this costume finished quickly. It will be relatively quick, I think, because there's not so much to it. I don't need it immediately. But I haven't got round to ordering the big crystals for it yet, so it may all be held up on that score.

What brand of bra do you use? I ask because I have a hell of a lot of trouble finding suitable ones and I figure what you're using could be purchasable on the internets.

I don't go for any particular brand. The last two were basic t-shirt bras from Marks & Spencer, and for this project, I got this one on Ebay, here:

But basically I just wanted to get a t-shirt bra in the right size, for cheaper than I'd pay at M&S! I got two, but they didn't combine postage like they said they would, grrr!

Actually, these ones are nice and thick, and I would probably buy them again.

It looks similar to the ones I had a few years back, that I stiffened for the purple. It's just getting the damn SIZE. And I am at that point where I really need to wear a minimiser for daily wear (BOOORING BLAH) but want a costume bra that doesn't cover the entire boob acreage, because WHY WOULD YOU.

I shall keep my eyes peeled for this brand! Um J is going to make me a custom costume and I need to find a really decent bra for it.
