Get ready for some oomph! Refinement meets support in the Harriet, an underwired bra designed to become a true foundation in your wardrobe--and your bra sewing adventures! The Harriet's classic style features a lovely balconette neckline, supportive scoop-back straps, and a 3-piece cup seam design that lifts and centers.
Views A and B feature supportive, unlined cup fabrics and an optional lace upper cup. View C has a partially lined cup and fully lined cradle which gives you opportunities to play with lace on the front of the bra.
I designed this bra to dance that delicate line between sensual shape and practical support details, and it has quickly become my favorite for playing with lace! I wanted to create a versatile style for wide range of sizes; the cups were drafted and graded in 3 different groups to accommodate needs on both ends of the size spectrum.
Size Group 1: 28-42 A-E
Size Group 2: 28-42 E-H
Note: This pattern uses UK bra sizing. After a D, it increases to D, DD, E, F, FF, G, GG, H.
