- Move the straps in the back in a bit. The straps in the bra is bit more wide set typical of a balconette. Visually appealing but not so great on my sloped shoulders. Alternatively, move the straps in 2 cm at the cups or just do away with the fabric strap section entirely.
- Google when in doubt! (see below)
- Try 4 hook eye closure
- Try wider elastic for band
Alas, the bra didn't fit. Cups were slightly too small as I was quadding at the top. I'm not sure if that was partially due to the fact I used foam instead of the lace as indicated on the pattern (although the Merckwaerdigh blog specified that you can use foam for just about all underwire bra patterns). More likely though, it due to the fact I tried to "round" out the apex a bit and possibly reduced the projection too much. Otherwise, the center gore was flat, and the wires were comfortable. I may try this again in a larger cup size later.
