Product Description

 

A beautifully fitting bra from the Pin-up Girls! This classic full band bra can be made with or without underwires and has great lift and support. It has been specially designed to use with Simplex and other low-stretch fabrics, which give the best support and a flattering profile. This is the pattern featured in The Bra-makers Manual. The pattern has two views - one with lace trim on the upper cup and one made without lace. Both views use fabric for extra comfortable straps. This pattern is available in over 90 sizes. Be sure to pick the size range that suits your needs. Each pattern has 20 sizes included in the envelope! All patterns have both French and English instructions!

If you are not quite confident enough about your ability to make a bra and fit it from the pattern, why not consider taking a class in Beginner bra-making? We use the Pin-up Girls patterns for all our classes.

  1. could be better. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2017

    I have just finished my 3rd bra with this pattern. I would never have been able to make the first one without the Craftsy class. The pictures are pretty good but the directions are hard to follow. I am hoping this 3rd one will be the right fit. Even though I measured as stated the cup size is hard to get fitted right.! It makes up a beautiful bra so I gave it 4 stars.


  2. Very good pattern 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2017

    With this pattern and the Craftsy tutorial I made a perfect bra the very first time. Fitting can always be problematic but I was able to use the pattern itself and got a perfect fit without alterations. Very impressed.


  3. Excellent pattern 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2017

    I knew what alterations to make before I made my first tester. I did need to round the cups a little not to my liking, but that doesn't make them bad, just for me. Very comfortable and with my alterations, fits really well. Next up is the Shelley.


  4. Love this pattern! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2016

    I bought this with a kit to do Beverly Johnson's Craftsy course and love the way it works. It took a few muslins to get it right but when I did I was totally pleased! It came out looking a lot more professional and polished than a previous pattern I was using and the possibilities for what I can do with it are boundless.


  5. Love this bra! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Dec 2016

    I love this bra! I watched the bra tutorial on Craftsy.com, and had to make a bra! So far, I have made one for myself, two for my daughter, and one for my 11 year old granddaughter! (obviously, I didn't use the Classic Full Band Pattern for my granddaughter. They have a kids pattern too!) I gave the pattern 5 stars; however, I have found they run small in the band size. The cups are fine, but the bands are small. I also wish the large pattern went up even larger in size! My daughter wears a 56 band, so I had to do a lot of adjusting.


  6. Nice pattern 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2016

    I'm a newbie to bra making so I needed an easy pattern. This was easy. I also watched the craftsy video and that helped immensely. Alas, I bought the wrong size; I was at the end of a size range and I should have gone down instead of up. I wish the size ranges were a bit more inclusive for my size (38-42 band size in one size). But overall, a very nice pattern. I love it that you can get a bra kit to go along with this pattern, too.


  7. perfect for bra 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2016

    love its exactly what i needed to make the bra.


  8. quite satisfied 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2016

    I bought this pattern for Beverly's Craftsy class. I don't care for the "perky" cups but it is easy to alter the pattern as Beverly shows in class. This pattern is a great learning tool and a jumping off spot for many design changes to make totally different and beautiful bras.


  9. Love this pattern. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jun 2016

    I opened the pattern and started really looking at it.
    I can make not only my bras but bras for my daughter, daughter in law and a neighbor.
    Being able to trace off nice dark lines are a joy for these well used eyes
    Thank you for being there with great service and a tremendous amount of patients and caring.


  10. I was very pleased 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2016

    This bra turned out wonderfully. It fit! I am very pleased and plan on making more.


  11. Easy-to-figure-out pattern in my size! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2016

    I purchased a beautiful bra pattern from somewhere in the Netherlands first but could hardly understand how to do it. Then I saw Bev Johnson's class on Craftsy and took it, and that's when I ended up purchasing this pattern to see if I could make this one work.

    It's easy to understand and make changes on, and the seam allowances are built into the pattern so I don't have to figure that part out like with the Netherlands pattern or their size differences.

    As one other reviewer said, I do wish the back band was not so wide (I have a large band size but need a small cup size), but it's not critical to my satisfaction with this pattern. After watching the class, it was fairly easy to sew up, easy to figure out what to alter, and looked professional when I was done. I'm so happy to have a way to make a bra that fits.


  12. Super 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2015

    The pattern is great. The only thing I wish was different is for the smaller cup sizes I wish the band was smaller and there was only 2 or even better one hook instead of 3. I think I can modify it with no trouble though.


  13. Best pattern I have found 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jun 2015

    While i have not made the actual product, the pattern is very nicely marked. It came in my size and I am hoping to not only make one for me, but my daughters friend who wears an odd size that is not in stores.


  14. Good pattern 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2015

    This has been a good pattern for me to learn to make a bra. I have to make numerous alterations and am glad to be enrolled in the craftsy class as well. This pattern is simple to make alterations on, the pattern pieces easy to trace and lots of patterns close in size are included to help with those alterations. The end product looks like ready to wear.
