The Superstar Bra is a lounge bra that’s so comfortable you’ll never want to take it off! It has a crossover back and three band options – regular jersey, cropped top jersey and elastic.
The Superstar Bra goes from XXS – 5XL and A – H cup. There are detailed instructions on how to pick the best size. There is also measurement information in the images above.
Light/medium knit fabrics with 50%+ stretch and strong return are required. Return means your fabric returns to its original size and shape after being stretched. Possible fabrics include cotton/Lycra jersey and athletic polyester/Lycra jersey. You can use the same fabric for your outer and lining. Additionally, you can provide extra support by sewing a middle layer of power mesh.
This pattern is suitable for enthusiastic beginners. An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but importantly a regular sewing machine is all you need for all options.
This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.
Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

This pattern is very easy to print and put together at home. I read the instructions before hand and it clearly explains which pages to print for which size. I am a confident beginner and made the pattern on a standard sewing machine using a stretch stitch. The instructions are clear and concise and the pictures make it easy to understand what you should be doing when. The Waves and Wild Facebook group had lots of helpful suggestions and support for sewing. I had never sewn a dart but someone suggested shortening the straight stitch length as you sew towards the apex to make the dart less pointy. It worked for me. Very happy with the pattern, instructions and fit. 😄

Just made my first one. Instructions are clear and easy to follow.
Such a great pattern.

Just wow. I am still amazed I managed to make a bra that fit perfectly first time, it’s comfortable, flattering and incredibly quick to sew. Supportive for large sizes (I use the power mesh option for my mum), and great for smaller sizes too (for myself I use the insert option). Another win!
I was thrilled to find this pattern, and found that I got my perfect fit after the 3rd attempt with only a couple of tiny tweeks.
It’s so easy to make, with the video to help… Which I recommend you watch first. I now don’t wear anything else except these, and have multiple colours in my wardrobe. I even extended the band to make it more of a top for the summer.
I highly recommend it….. Once you’ve made your perfect size you’ll never look back!
