4. With the right sides together, pin and sew your bra cups. Sew the lining pieces the same way.
5. Using a basting stitch, baste along the bottom of the sheer overlay.
6. With the sheer overlay, gather to fit the outer bra cup and pin. After you have pinned, stitch the overlay in place using a basting stitch, it will make the next steps easier.
7. Place the bra strap in the center of the bra cup at the top.
8. Pin the lining to the and stitch around, leaving the bottom open. Once stitched, trim, and press the seam allowance.

14. Fold the back a ½’’ and make a casing for the elastic. Edgestitch down leaving an opening on both sides.
