I'm not sure if this is the place to ask about this but I couldn't find any other page more appropriate. I am very frustrated because I seem to be restricted from accessing the new articles when they first come out. I am and have been a subscriber to Foundations Revealed for over a year. Even though I am logged in the only options I am given is to register even though I am a subscriber. Any help?
The idea of the cup being eased in the cradle in order to give the finished cup a more rounded line and a less pointed dart in the same way you would ease the head of an sleeve into the armhole of a jacket comes from soft lingerie such as bra topped petticoats and cami-knickers, were the cups are more of a covering than a support.
A “styling trick” along similar lines you could try is to first make inner lining cups as per the articles then cut out the outer cups with on darting. Measure the width of the pattern dart(s) and divide the measurement by say 5 or 6. Mark the steps around the bottom edge of the cups to give you the position of small “pin tucks” or “pleats” radiating from the point of bust. Think “sun ray” pleated circle skirt or fan and you are on to a fashion winner. It makes such a pretty and interesting bra in that really expensive printed silk but the small pin tucks are the devils own work to get even.
