Fixed a Bra!

I'm so proud of myself! I have an old Comexim (like, several years old, wouldn't be worth adding to the database + I've stretched it out a bit etc) which had a wire pop out of the channel that I hadn't worn for a few years because of it (easily accessible bra recycling programs please hmu my crops are dying and by crops I mean my closet space). I've been tentatively interested in getting into sewing lately, and today, I tried stitching up that channel, and it worked! I put the bra on and everything and the stitches didn't pop! What would happen if I wore the bra for a few hours is yet to be determined but I'm so excited to add another bra into my rotation.

Maybe you'll catch me putting darts in my bras that are a bit tall or shortening bands in the not too far future.

  • Congrats on your first bra rescue! :) It all seems more scary than it actually is. I was at first scared to shorten a band, one day I just did it and it went well. Maybe if you do a bigger alternation for the first time, choose an older bra. For my first wire transplant I used a worn out bra to test it.

  • On-wards to bra salvaging and bring on those custom-fitting darts!
