For those who love a cotton jersey bra but are looking for something lovely instead of a solid, we're introducing a new product offering! We've found a place where we can get high quality cotton jersey printed and are putting it into a bra kit with everything you need to make a beautiful cotton jersey bra. This limited availability print is similar to our "Spring" print, but the colors are cooler and more muted, and there are no birds, just apple blossoms and bees. We're offering it accented with Frost (white), Seafoam, Toffee, Pewter and Storm. You can see the print with the four band colors in the pictures.
Cotton jersey can make a terrific bra, but is a better choice for light to medium support. If you can use tricot for your bra, you can use cotton jersey, and you use it in the same way, with the stretch going in opposite direction between the lining and the outer cup. Run the stretch up and down on the outer cup and across on the lining. I use a size 44/12 wire and am a 36E and I can use cotton jersey. Cotton jersey is very easy to sew and doesn't need any special techniques to sew well. Cotton jersey is also a great choice for panties, especially in hot summer months.
The kit comes standard with white cotton jersey lining and channeling for under the cups. I will match the twill tape and hook and eye color to your band color. If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. If you want an elastic strap, please specify the color. I will provide white rings and slides unless you ask for something else.
