DIFFICULTY. Bra making seems to have a reputation of being more difficult than regular sewing. In terms of skill, most bra patterns utilize a 1/4 seam allowance (or 7mm). For most people that means you are lining up the edge of the fabric to the edge of a sewing foot instead of a line on the throat plate.
Why are bras made?
Bras are designed for a variety of purposes, including general breast support, enhancing breast size, creating cleavage, or other aesthetic or practical considerations. Swimsuits, camisoles, and backless dresses may have built-in breast support with supportive bra cups.
