Merry Christmas Boos! ❤🎄Hope you are enjoying the holiday, spending time with your loved ones?! This Christmas is all about my ankara bralet. There was a lot of trial and error, particularly getting the cup shape just so, but I think it worked out ok!
- Ankara fabric
- Sewing machine

Cut out two rectangles for the band. Measure around your underbust to get this measurement.
Sew the curved edges of the triangles together.
Sew the wrong side two rectangles together. Turn outward to form a nice band.
To secure the back I attached an exposed the zipper to the ends of the rectangle.
Pin the left and right cup on the band. Make sure it in place.
Make two straps and attach it to the tip of the cups and at the back on the band.

It should (hopefully) look like this!
