Primrose Dawn: Delvine bralette

The Delvine from Primrose Dawn is a high-neck bralette with bust darts, various front lace overlay options, plain and lace cradles, and three back band styles. It is designed for low-stretch knits and has six front options and three different backs. I made Front B and Back J.


I got the fabric from B’wear for testing. It is a beautiful embroidered lace fabric. The color of the embroidery is a shimmering blue-gray.


According to my measurements, I started with a size 30D which was too big in the cups. I changed the cup size to a 30B and adapted the cradle, i.e. I lowered the underarm seam. I also needed to shift the darts 1cm to the side.

Construction Notes:

I do not remember any issues with the construction. Once I got the fit right, sewing was very straightforward. The inside has a very clean finish which I like a lot.
