Sweatshirt with cups


Let's draft the pattern for this super trendy bra top.

You can sew it in any medium weight knit, jersey, ponte...here you can find a reference for sewing cups and here one to sew collar, zipper and facing.

To draft the pattern, start from a copy of your contoured bodice.

Step 1

On a copy of your contoured block, draw the underbust line (measure down from bust point as half of bust distance minus 1 to 1,5cm).

Draw side seam parallel to center front from armpit down to underbust line.

Step 2

Change front waist dart so that it is 3cm from waist to underbust, than shaped toward bust point.

Step 3

Draw the wire shape and position on front, approx. 1cm away from center front and with deepest part on underbust line.

We suggest to use the actual wire as a ruler, so you know that the shape is exactly matching.

Draw also the neckline.
