Hello beautiful people,
The #easeintomotherhood event has been going strong, and one of the most common things mothers write about is body changes. Feeling good in my skin has been … an interesting journey… In all sincerity, I miss the confidence in my body that sewing had brought to my life. I miss the happy feeling of wearing me-made garments that make me feel comfortable and beautiful, but for the last year or so, with so little time to sew it has been really hard to get any sewing done. For the last year or so, I needed a nursing friendly wardrobe in which I could feel comfortable, so I ended up buying one, which ended up taking away some of that blissful feeling. I tell myself, “IT’S JUST A PHASE”, right?!
Well, today I want to share something I’m very excited about! We have been weaning Emilia little by little over the last few months and I’m now able to wear normal clothes and bras during the day. While that means a little sadness because breastfeeding will come to an end at some point in the near future, that also means that it’s time to go back to the bra making front!! Because bras are so much quicker to make than many other garments!
To get going, I made a couple new bras using the Classic Pin-up Girls Bra Pattern and bra making kits from Bra Makers Supplies. Even if my measurements have changed, I now have a custom fitted pattern, but that’s a story for a different post.
I just love them!! I’m sooooo happy that I can wear underwired self-made bras and normal clothes!! Bras are such a useful little part of our wardrobes!!
Have you dared to start bra-making? What role have everyday bras played in your life?
I hope you are having a great weekend! 🙂
