How to Cover a Bra
When covering a bra start with a corner of your fabric with the top corner of your bra. Start pinning the fabric to the top of the bra. Work in you triangle pleated area then pin the fabric to the bottom. Adjust fabric pinning around bra til as desired. Trim your fabric around the cup. Sew up your pleat first, then sew up the rest of the cup. Trim up the fabric some more. Repeat on the other side.
I love this pattern for general costuming for belly dancing. Have used the coat pattern plus the shimmy skirt pattern, and tie straps. I used pattern piece 11 to get my straps for the bra. The sides straps I cut and sewed together as is with a front and lining. I used 1 for the halter strap on each side folded in half and sewn together. Sew on your straps where desired. Add your hook and eyes for proper fit or tie it in place.
Above are several photos for different ways to design over the top of your covered bra. Feel free to use these as examples in working on creating your own beautiful costume bra.
