The Josie Bra & Pants set is designed with absolute comfort in mind. You can either make it in cotton jersey or a combination of jersey and lace. The bra has cross back straps and can be made with a long or short under band. The short underband has a hook & eye closure at the back whilst the long underband is continuous all the way around.
The Josie Bra & Pants is available in UK sizes 6 - 24. The bra is not underwired but does provide a lovely amount of support across sizes. A size chart will be included in the pattern to help you work out which size to make.
