Crochet Brassiere, from Stitchcraft 150 (Feb 1945)

Perfect for the cold weather - sensible and practical. Maybe.
I really don't think a crochet bra is going to give me enough support, but its tempting to try making one...

This darling is from Stitchcraft 150 (I believe thats February 1945) which i've just popped over in my Etsy Store. The brassiere was too fabulous not to share though.

I'm failing to see how a bra full of holes is good for the cold weather! This cracked me up and immediately went on my pinterest page for the Historical Sew Fortnightly.

Thank you for posting this pattern! I read reference to it in "Bras: A Private View", and since it was described as "surprisingly comfortable", I really want to try it at some point.
