  1. Very happy! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2017

    I am making my second Shelley in three days. Love the pattern and fit. I only had to tweak it a little. I wish there were directions for lining since I am lining the second one and it is taking a little longer . The power bar and lace make this functional for an E cup but pretty as well. Thank you.


  2. Best fitting bra EVER!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2016

    I have never, in my nearly 50 years of bra-wearing, had a bra fit so well as the Shelley! THANK YOU, Fairy BraMother! Being a C-cup by age 12 and now an E-cup, bra-comfort has been non-existent in my life - - - until NOW! Thank You! Thank YOU! THANK YOU!!!!! What a blessing this pattern has been for my full-figured form. And the possibilities for modifications are endless. Many Many Thanks!


  3. Dream bra 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

    I'm in my late 30s. This is the first time in my life I have had a bra with a bridge that sits flat on my chest with the added bonus that I do not have to perform acrobatics to get all my bits where they should go. I watched the Craftsy class prior to attempting my first one. The fit right off the bat was very good - much better than any ready to wear I've ever owned (I've spent sooo much money on poorly fitting bras over the years!) but not perfect. However, with Beverly's guidance from the class, the fit tweaks were so easy! My second bra is a dream. I can't wait to make many, many more and explore some fun variations! Seriously, if you're on the fence or intimidated, it is actually easy and surprisingly fast to make. Worth every penny.

    *I sewed size 34G with the following alterations: 1/4" dart from back band, shortened strap 3", moved strap attachment in on back by about 1", and rounded the apex.


  4. I feel pretty! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2016

    This is the second PUG pattern I've made. I did the classic bra before and wanted to try something different. I love the way the Shelley turned out. The pattern fit perfectly on the first try--just make sure you measure yourself per the instructions! My RTW size is not even close! The bras give me a great silhouette!


  5. Very Nice 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2016

    Great pattern. Just finished my first bra today! My only complaint is in the instruction diagrams; the illustrations do not show the same subtle differences in the cup pieces as exist in real life. I really had to puzzle over how the pieces were intended to be oriented after sewing the lower and middle cup together, trying to attach the upper cup piece and then the power bars.


  6. Great Bra Pattern 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2015

    I am hard to fit as I have a small band size and after having children, need 2 different sized cups. I took the 2 Craftsy classes that Beverly teaches on Bra making as I am a costumer and sometimes need to produce period bras. I thought I would practice on making bras for myself figuring if I can fit myself, I can fit anyone. I will never buy a commercial bra again. Not only can I make them to fit - well. But I can make them as pretty as I want. I found the Shelly fits perfectly after altering the pattern for the asymmetrical problems I have. The pattern is well made and the instructions very clear. Thanks Sweet Cups!


  7. Beautifully designed bra 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2015

    This pattern for the Shelley bra is great. It is printed nicely and easy to find the size you need on the printed copy. The quality of paper it is printed on is great.

    The problem is, I measured by the directions then ordered what I should ware.

    I made a sample to fit from and it was way too small in the cups. I tried to alter the cups but it was too hard for me as it was so much smaller in the cups than what I needed. I should have ordered at least 2 or maybe 3 times bigger for me.

    I was so excited to make my own bra. I would be labeled as an expert sewer
    -car seats (make pattern for springs with no pattern to go by),
    -hand bags/backpack (make my own complicated patterns)
    -tote bags
    -curtains
    -quilts
    -alter clothes

    I have had many hard challenges but this one has stumped me.

    Maybe in a week or two I will try again.

  9. love it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2015

    this is my first time making a bra, loved the style of this one. Pattern is easy to understand and the multiple sizes is great. I usually have trouble falling out of bras, I am not overly large just very round. This bra fit me very well, covers and I don't pop out of it. Can't wait to make more.


  10. Great pattern! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Oct 2014

    Making a bra is fun, because you don't need that much fabric! The directions were clear and easy to understand and there were several diagrams! There are lots of options for sizes which I think could get confusing, but I just made the size that I was fitted with at Nordstrom and it worked out perfectly! I do think the cups make you a little pointy, which I actually really like. (its not too Madonna-esque) The company was great to work with and even gave me a little money back on shipping fees (nice surprise!) I would definitely buy from them again!
