Fuschia Pin Up Girls Classic
by Natasha Estrada Follow

A simple straight forward make. Pattern is Pin Up Girls Classic. I made a size 38D without any alterations and it fit almost perfectly straight out of the package. The only issue is some emptiness in the upper cups towards the armpit which is typical of my post weight loss breasts and not really a huge fitting issue. My breasts as they are now have almost no volume at the top.

Fabric is fuschia duoplex and powernet from a kit from Bra Makers Supply. I did have one issue. I ordered the small findings kit but they sent me 3/4" band elastic which is not what the 38C pattern uses so I had to use the underarm elastic for both the band and underarm meaning I had to also shorten the fabric straps to make it work. Unfortunately the kit only comes with 3/4 yard of strap elastic so I couldn't lengthen the elastic part of the strap to compensate so I'm working the straps to their limits. The look uneven lengths but that's just the photo styling. The duoplex is quite sturdy so doesn't want to lay flat.

I wish the fuchsia was as vibrant in real life as it is in photos. It's actually a very tricky color to photograph
