Introducting a New Bra Pattern

For a long time now I have been meaning to get a vintage bra pdf put together for my more well endowed (lucky girl!) followers. I finally found the right pattern in a roomy size and got it into the works.
Ladies, meet the 1950's Long Line Bra PDF.


Nice to meet you.
The bra is for a 42" bust, and can easily be sized up or down by a couple of inches.

View A stops just short of the waistline and View B rests right at the top of the hips.
The pattern can be made using 1 1/4 yard of 35" fabric.

I'll be giving one pattern away to one lucky commenter. To enter, just leave me a comment below with what kind of pattern pdf you would like me to develop next.

For an extra entry, you can like A Few Threads Loose on Facebook, if you haven't already or become a follower of the blog.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

(Also, if you haven't already, check out the giveaway I have going on to win a $20 gift certificate. Last chance to enter is this coming Sunday )

  2. I love the pattern and so glad it comes in a bigger size. Would love to see cami and full slip patterns in bigger size also.

  3. This looks nice! Do you know what is meant by the 42" bust? I'm not sure if it's designed for a lady with a large back and a smaller cup size or a small back and a large cup size. :)

  4. A pattern that fits my huge boobs, hurrah! Hmm, I wanted gloves next but you've got that covered... maybe a hat? Bigger sizes are always appreciated too.

  8. Love the pattern. I'd have to agree with the other poster who said larger sizes. I'm a bit daunted by the thought of sizing up more than just a few inches.

  9. Lovely! I'd love to see some more slip patterns. They are impossible to find in stores anymore so I'm going to have to start making my own.

  11. I just found your blog & it is lovely. I have an interest in 30s patterns. I think that there aren't enough undergarment patterns for that era.

  17. I like it!! Haven't tried to make a conventional-style bra...now I wonder why not!

  18. Its so cute! I'm a new reader as I found you over on sewretro, and I'm hooked! I like the other ladies here would appreciate a slip with a fuller skirt (perhaps for under a 50's sheer shirtdress?). Can't wait to see whats up next! Thanks and take care!!

  19. I want to win! hehe... What about a larger size playsuit? I would love a playsuit pattern ready for Viva!

  20. I would also love more larger sized undies. Perhaps some tap pants, to be made in silk? :) I saw this in my RSS feed of your etsy store, and immediately put the pattern on my "to buy" list!

  21. Can you develop a comfortable girdle pattern, like something made with a spandex/cotton blend?

    ReplyDelete
  22. More hat patterns, please! A lot of dresses and slips and things can be draped or drafted, but vintage hats are more intricate.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah, I think you've hit my niche pattern on the head! I love this pattern - although Blackberry's girdle idea is intriguing...

  25. Such a really nice pattern!!! I've been thinking about a long line for a while, now. what is the back closure??

    ReplyDelete
  26. A girdle or suspender belt pattern would be good, or some simple blouse patterns

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is awesome! I love it! As for new patterns, I think a suspender belt would be awesome and not something you find anywhere.:)

  28. Oh wow that one is actually close to fitting my bosoms. I love the look of it. I'd love to see more classic lingerie or petticoats.
