Lace-Back Bra DIY

Hey, Ya'll!
I thought I'd show ya my Lace-Back Bra DIY.
I've had my mind to do something like this for  sometime now. The opportunity finally arose when I came across this wide band lace that was fairly close in color to my favorite worn out bra.

Isn't it terrible to hold on to such things?
I was almost ashamed to write this one for having to admit to keeping things that are so raggedy but here I am sharing.
You can buy pricey lace back or fancy bras but they usually come with a pretty good price,
why not see
 how this will turn out?
I think this will be a nicer look with some of the low back or very thin summer shirts,
I started out by pinning the old bra onto Priscilla.
I then pinned the lace to the old bra where I intended to cut the old bra away.
I will say to pull your lace just a bit to make sure it will have a snug fit and hold things in place the way it should.
Once everything is pinned clip away the old back.
Also, my lace was on the wide side and I didn't want it to ride to high under my armpit so I put a dart on the side to get it down to size around the cup.
I machined sewed the back.
When sewing around the cup 

 I base stitched and went back with a whip stitch on both inside and outside seam.

And there you have it!
One lace back bra DIY/Upcycle!

I hope you're inspired to try one of your own.
Thank you for stopping by.
