Pin-Up Girls: Sherri Partial Band Front Closing Bra Pattern
Sherri has a lower cut front and has an optional front closing . You can also use a traditional back closing - the pattern is included. This pattern must use underwires as part of its support system. It has been specially designed to use with Duoplex, and other low-stretch fabrics; which give the best support and a flattering profile.
The Sherri Partial Band Front Closing Bra Pattern has four front views - two can be made entirely of fabric, and two can opt for upper cups made of lace. Each of these styles can also have either a standard or a front closing. Both views use elastic straps attached to the upper cup. This pattern is available in many sizes.
This pattern uses a unique sizing system, called the Bottom Cup Depth Sizing Method (BCD). All BCD sizes from 2.25 through 7.5 are included in this one pattern which offers the equivalent of over 100 ready-to-wear sizes. This includes the "in-between" sizes that ready-to-wear does not carry!
Next, measure your RIB CAGE, pulling the tape snug against the skin but not tight. If you measure 34" on the rib cage, you will trace to the line marked 34 on the 5.25 band pattern piece.
The unique feature of the BCD system of sizing is that is the cup you've chosen is too small or too large, you simply make the next BCD size up or down.
