This is a French sewing Pattern from 1951 for 2 versions
of the same bra. One full cup and one open (no) cup.
It was assumed that you had a working knowledge of
dressmaking. Most women sewed back then so there
are no Instructions. I have translated what was there
and filled in the gaps to help.
It’s pretty self explanatory if you use the diagram and
pictures. Also included is a full size printable pattern
They are both size European 44 (approx 35-36) but I’ve
made this one up and it comes up a lot smaller more
like a 32-34
Suggested fabrics are Silks and lightweight cottons or
satin and lace for the cups.
I have scaled this one up so you get a full sized pattern,
but like all things vintage please check your sizes and
make a toile before committing your fabric
