Même si l'ouvrage est en anglais, il reste accessible et claire. Il reprend point par point tous les éléments et étapes de la construction d'un soutien-gorge. Attention il ne contient pas de patron mais explique comment suivre un patron du commerce. C'est un ouvrage qui permet à des débutantes en couture de lingerie (pas débutante en couture cependant ;-) de réaliser sans encombres un premier ouvrage. J'aurais bien aimé le lire à mes débuts, il m'aurait fait gagner du temps et éviter bien des questions et des erreurs.Les photos explicatives gagnent à être vues sur tablette ou pc.
J'enlève une * car j'aurais aimé qu'il y ait beaucoup plus de photos, un petit paragraphe sur les différents style de lingerie (rétro, ...), et un patron de base à modifier. Je conseille ce livre. Il est de plus d'un bon rapport qualité/prix. Dommage, toutefois qu'il n'existe pas en version papier... pour l'avoir à côté de soi pendant la couture.

I have only basic sewing experience but have wanted to know how to sew my own bras for some time. This book sets out to explain how.

The focus of the book is pretty much summed up by the title - Construction and Fitting. It is written in very simple, easy to understand terms and walks you carefully through the steps of sewing a bra pattern together. A large part of the book is devoted to explaining common fitting problems you may encounter as you sew and how to correct them. Note that it does NOT include any patterns nor instructions for drafting your own pattern - it just walks you through altering/sewing a ready-made bra pattern.

The sewing instructions are written at a level suitable for anyone who knows the basic stitches of a sewing machine; it does not require an advanced seamstress to understand. At the same time the instructions are very thorough and will offer a professional result if followed carefully. If you have never sewn a bra but want to, this book will get you there.

There were not nearly enough pictures. Although the instructions were thorough, I like to have pictures/diagrams to reference. It kind of comes across as cheap without them. Also, I would have loved a section on how to draft a bra pattern or block from body measurements. I also would have liked a section on how to do major pattern alterations, such as converting a darted cup to a three-piece cup, a full-frame bra to a frameless etc. Those two additions would make this the perfect book for me.

Finally, (although it doesn't relate to the content of the book) this book was very poorly edited. In fact, I'm not sure it ever crossed an editor's desk. Typos and missing words abound. While all instructions were still understandable, it gives the book an unprofessional and cheap air. Just because it is a Kindle-only edition is no reason to skip the basic publishing process.

I've been interested in creating my own bra since most of the ones purchased barely fit comfortably. This books helps to understand what is needed with clear and concise information how to create something that not only fits well but feels comfortable too. I would suggest this book to anyone that wants to learn the ins and out of creating a bra. Although I read it on the Kindle edition and the pictures were small and in black and white the book told you what to look for, how a bra should fit, fabrics to use, what notions you would need and how to evaluate bra making hardware, how to measure for band and cup size. Not a bad book for learning how to making a comfortable bra.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect book for amateur bra makers 1 mai 2013

I just gobbled this book up, it's so easy to read!

"Demystifying" is the perfect title for this book, because that's exactly what it does. It walks you through fitting and sewing a bra with lots of great info and tips, but it doesn't feel dense and there are lots of diagrams to help. I loved that the construction steps are laid out so well, that it will be perfect to use as a reference when I get stuck on one step or another.

I didn't give it the full five stars because I couldn't see the pictures very well on my Kindle, and I would have loved to see some fitting pictures. [Edited to add: I have a old e-ink kindle, the pictures probably display fine on a colour screen]. I would happily buy a physical book version if it was available. Other than that, it is the perfect manual for people who love to sew to jump in to the world of sewing bras.

Lots of detail but not a lot of large cup size information. For the average size lady, very nice book. Lots of instructions and pictures to help.

Par Allan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Tables are far too small to read even on an iMac. Figures are few and far between and a terrible colour for the samples. This yellow is impossible to view in any detail on a computer screen and the photos are far too small. The figures show a 'final' result. I would have expected far more pictures showing the steps of the construction for each method. The syntax of the sentences is grammatically poor. The text continually refers you back and forth between construction sequence and the techniques section with no hyperlinks. This means you are constantly flipping and/or searching for the right place in the book. The construction Sequence section is terrible. It should give an example of a particular pattern rather than give instructions and then contradict those instructions by merely saying finish by your preferred method or by pattern method. How do you know what a preferred method is if you haven't learnt to make a bra yet? In summary I was very disappointed in this book; not only in layout; navigation; use of language and poor, small or lacking appropriate photos or diagrams. I cant honestly believe any ratings given by customers over two stars of which there are many.
