Rush Order Stops Me From Finishing My Wip || Crochet Bra Tutorial
The reason why it became a WIP in the first place is that I run out of yarn. I don't want to make a purchase online with one ball of yarn needed. Although I may order whatever color I want in addition to the white one, I already have 2 boxes of yarn that I feel like I need to utilize to reduce the amount of yarn that is already in existence.
So I reasoned that perhaps I should just wait for a customer to order a custom-made crochet item who will select a color that is not in my stockpile, forcing me to place an online order.
To cut the story short, I received 3 orders of crochet wearables last week and got no choice but purchase the customer's preferred color. Fortunately, the purchase came just on Tuesday and I was about to complete first the WIP.
By the way, here is what my current work in progress looks like (bottom picture). I unravel the first thing I did on the portion of the heart design since it looks like two mountains standing side by side (upper picture).
The second attempt at shaping the heart was okay but I'm not satisfied with it, so I'm thinking of undoing it again. But before that, I planned to draw it first on paper to easily follow the perfect heart shape or look for a pattern on the internet.
However, another person placed an urgent order last Wednesday and I need to finish it earlier than July 30. To complete the rush order, I had to postpone my WIP's continuation once more.
She ordered a crocheted bra, a bandana (head covering), and a pair of earrings in the color white.
Now I want to show you how simple it is to make this crochet bra. We first get the materials required for this tutorial.
- 16-ply spun polycotton yarn (I just double the regular 8-ply yarn).
- 2 pads for the bra
- 2.5 mm crochet hook
- a cutter
First, I made 17 chains as the foundation and dc on the 14th chain until we reached the 1st chain. On the first chain, make 3dc-chain-3dc and dc all the way on the other side. When reaching the last stitch, chain 2 to begin the 2nd layer. Then dc all the way up and in the middle where you placed your chain in 3dc-chain-3dc, place another 3dc-chain-3dc and dc all the way to finish.
Simply repeat the second layer's steps on layers three through eight, changing the 3dc-chain-3dc pattern to 2dc-chain-2dc.
And on the 9th layer, instead of dc, we just use sc this time and when we reach the middle or top of our cap, we make a long chain and single crochet back. This serves as a tie on our bra cap. Then continue the sc on the other side to the bottom of our cap.
I was currently enjoying myself while crocheting with white yarn and considering a different project. However, the main drawback of using white yarns is that if you're not careful about where you put your project and don't use clean hands, it can easily become smeared.
Next, we will then make holes at the bottom of the cap by making a dc-chain skip one stitch and repeating the pattern all the way to the finish, so that we may later insert the tie.
We then move on to creating something to which we may attach our pads securely in the manner shown in the figure. Now, we can place our pads and proceed to make the shell stitch on the sides of the cap. Next, we make 10chains-sc,10chains-sc 5 times in every hole to look like ruffles.
And then we make at least 4 feet long tie and insert it into the holes that we made earlier.
And voila! We're done folks. I hope you found this tutorial simple and easy to follow.
And just this day, I already handed this order to my customer and still waiting for her feedback since it was packed when I gave it to her.
This crochet bra will look fantastic with a bandana, some earrings, and a short or skirt in either red, black, or even white for your island getaways.
pro kaayo sis uyyy 😍😍😍 lahi rajud ❤
Salamat sis.. heheh
It looks so wonderful 🤩
Thanks @minnie.reads. 🥰
You're welcome 😊

Hahahah, kahit bandana sis ayoko, mahiyain talaga ako pagdating sa camera. 😅 Yan pa kayang bra lang. 🤣
I already saw myself on one of my trips to the beach with that bra, that bandana and those earrings (and shorts of course), enjoying a few drinks and the sea... hahaha (dreaming costs nothing).
Your work is beautiful, Jonalyn. I'm glad you were able to meet the client, we still have more time to complete the WIPs ❣️.
I just felt a failed goal here this week. I ought to finish that one. But then, not all we intended to do will happen because of some circumstances. Anyway, I'm not alone in this dilemma. 😁 thanks for dropping by @lauramica.🥰
I love the bikinis you made! 😍 I would like to crochet something like this one day
Thank you @imena.🥰
I really love this bra, it is so beautiful and delicated.
I will try to crochet one following your tutorial.

Totally awesome. You’ve done a marvelous job.
Super tiyaga mo, sis. Pahingi ng Ako Ng patience.xD
Sobrang love ko lang talaga yung ginagawa ko kaya ganun. Hehe. Thanks for dropping by @chileng17. 🥰
This craftsmanship really needs a lot of patience, which I don't have haha kaya salute po sa inyo na gumagawa ng mga crocheted items! 😍
Iadd mo na ang love sa craft nato para makapagpatuloy. Remember love can move mountains, char. 😜 Thanks for dropping by @wholesamdiaries.🥰
Hindi talaga kaya ng patience ko 😂
For sure iba din yung mga likes and hobbies mo na kung saan hahaba yung patience mo. 😁
Hahaha, I found it funny how the heart looks like a mountain next to each other😊. You can look for a pattern on the internet, even cross stitch embroidery patterns work great.
There is a big reason why your WIPs are delayed and it's because of work, that's wonderful.
I love that bra, very delicate.
Keep in touch
Hehe, yes I just thought I knew how to make a heart shape using only my imagination. But nah, I gave up now. And I already had the drawing. It's just that there's still an order to make. Hope I can still finish it this week.
