Ready? Ok! Start by putting a stretch needle in your sewing machine.
Next we're going to sew our darts on the bra pieces. Bring the slits you made for the dart legs together, and place a pin at the dart point.
this post if you don't know how!).
On the wrong side, trim away the dart excess next to your edgestitching.
Get out your wide stretch lace. Pin it so that one scalloped edge is flush with the neckline edge of the bra piece.
When you get to the peak of the neckline, fold the lace to form a corner. Continue to the opposite edge of the piece.
Repeat on the other bra piece.
Now we're going to stabilize the neckline with 1/8" elastic. Use pattern piece number 4 as a guide to cut two pieces of elastic.
Pin the elastic to the wrong side of the neckline lace, 1/4" away from the edge of the elastic. Your elastic will be slightly shorter than your neckline.
Set your machine to a zigzag that is 1.5 wide and 3mm long. Stitch the elastic in place, stretching the elastic slightly to fit. Go slowly--that elastic is narrow! Pivot at the peak of the lace, making sure that the fold in the corner stays folded.
Repeat on the other side.
Now we're ready to stitch the center front seam. Pin the two bra pieces together, right sides together.
Your bra piece is finished!
We'll sew the lower slip in the next post.
