How to Make A BraWritten by Janice Wee
Once upon a time, there was a socialite who had almost perfect dress for party. Almost, because it was not opaque enough and her modesty might be compromised. In those days, people were conservative and bras were not invented yet. The smart woman used to small scarves and a ribbon to make first bra, to cover up and protect her modesty. These home made bras are nothing like branded bras. Your home made bra wouldn't give you cleavage you get from Wonderbras but they are fun to make.
Here's how you can make such a bra.
You need 2 clean handkerchiefs or small scarves of same color and size. These bras can also be used as bikini tops so choose your handkerchiefs or scarves accordingly.
Then get 3 matching ribbons. 1 long enough to use as a bra band that would be secured by tying both ends as a ribbon. The other 2 will be bra straps.
Fold each handkerchief in half so you have 2 triangles.
