TO MAKE: Retro 1940s Bra Pattern

Vintage 1940s Bra Pattern - give your figure that "young" look by wearing a well-shaped "up-lift" brassiere beneath your frock. And here is one you can crochet for yourself, costing a shilling or so and demanding no clothing coupons.

You will require two 20-gramme ball of Coats Mercer-Crochet No. 60, a No. 4 1/2 steel crochet hook, 1 1/2 yards of narrow ribbon, and 3 small pearl buttons. (Two brassieres can be mad from 3 balls of Mercer-Crochet.)

Hats off to the ladies who needed to crochet their very own bras and all during wartime! I'm not sure we can even imagine what creative, brave and industrious ladies these women were but the fabulous thing is that we have this pattern which is the very bra pattern that was used to make this WWII bra! To all ladies (and men) who served - We Salute You! Thank you! - ZOOM to see stitches -

Size: the brassiere is made to fit a 32 to 34-inch bust.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund for my PDF Pattern?

No, due to the nature of digital files, there are NO returns, exchanges, or cancellations. All sales are final.

What YARN do I use?

Vintage Beso specializes in Vintage Patterns; therefore, vintage yarn does not usually exist anymore. I do not give yarn recommendations to this crucial decision.

Once you purchase the pattern, you can research that based on the information provided in the pattern. Some clues to look for are the descriptive words and ply, for example, 2-ply or 4-ply.

Now, all that being said - I do give an Exclusive Supplemental Gift with tons of info but that does not mean that it has the specific info you are looking for.

*Modern equivalent yarns need to be researched as most vintage yarns were manufactured by the companies who created the patterns and no longer exist.*

Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened?

Here are two things you need to do to print:

1. Open your PDF with Adobe. is free to download worldwide.

2. Then, must print off of a larger piece of hardware - meaning a laptop -----> not a phone.

VintageBeso specializes in LARGE print.

WHERE do I enter COUPON CODE for discount?

In talking with customers from all around the world, the answer seems to be the same; in that,

1. Coupon Code ENTRY is NOT available on phones

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

The pattern is very nice! But the quality of the scan is quite grainy and the gigantic pink font overplayed over the pattern is super distracting.

Très beau modèle d'une grande finesse
