A cool day in early fall, a warm cup of tea and a lovely stroll through a meadow sprinkled with delicate fall flowers and tiny meadowlarks.  Our new fall print Meadow is digitally printed on our soft and dreamy bamboo jersey and it makes a darling bralette for those days and times that you just want to relax. You might not want to put on an underwired bra, you might want to wear a lounge bralette instead. Of all of our new fall prints, Meadow is my daughter's favorite. There are so many darling bralette patterns out there, and bralettes are a great option for many women, including my daughter. The holidays are not far away and I'm sure I will be stitching up a bralette with our Meadow Kit! Whether you like wearing bralettes as your standard choice or if you want an option to wear around the house, you can make just what you want with our comprehensive bralette kits. If you are looking for a bra with more support, pop on over to our Meadow Bra Kit here. Or you might want a pair of panties to go with your Meadow Bralette. You can find our soft, luxuriant Meadow Bamboo Jersey Panty Kit here.

These kits come in a variety of options. You can add an element of spacer foam or microlycra, or you can make the entire bralette out of the print. Spacer foam is a darling option when paired with a print. Spacer foam is about 1/16" thick, is lightweight but substantial, breathable, and has a 4-way stretch. It is a different fabric than a cut and sew foam, which is thicker and primarily suitable for a lining only. For support, you would use it like any Lycra fabric, cutting it so that there is a little bit of negative ease. I remove the seam allowances within the cup and butt the seams together. Then I sew them together with a 3-step zigzag, running a piece of tissue paper under the fabric while I sew so that it doesn't creep on me. I keep the seam allowances on the band side and sew it into the band just like I would any other fabric. If you choose Microlycra as a liner you would sew it just like the print. 

These kits are offered with our sweet and subtle Meadow bamboo jersey print. This fabric is soft and stretchy, and for more support you'll want to use some sort of a base fabric layer to add support on the back band, which is what the Power Mesh or Power Net are in the kit to do. This is a fabric that can use that extra something that these fabrics will give unless your support level is very light.

There are 3 levels of support available. All three levels of support include a stable sheer lining for the front frame. For light support we offer a light, buttery power mesh to line the back band under the print. For medium support we offer medium weight power net to line the back band. For strong support we offer firm weight power net to line the back band in addition to Regular Weight Power Net for under the cups. For Regular Weight Power Net or Firm Weight Power Net pop on over to the listing for these fabrics and add a kit cut to line your cup.

For elastics, we offer either a foldover elastics option or a picot elastics option, and vary the weight of the elastics to correspond with the level of support. For reference, the Watson bralette uses picot elastic and the Sweet Sixteen bralette uses foldover elastic.
