Boutique Booby Traps Bralette Pattern
Sexy and unstructured bra top.
This pattern was designed by Booby Traps founder Jill Bradshaw in the 1980's. There are now several additional options on this pattern as it has had a few upgrades! It is still one of our best sellers as it is famous for its curved cup seams, allowing this bralette to be semi-supportive. Comfortable to wear and relatively easy to make, you will love our Joy pattern.
This pattern is designed for use with stretch laces, lycra, stretch mesh and stretch satins. There are several options now on this pattern as it has had a few upgrades! Now you can make your bralettes with a slip or camisole attachment, angles lace band, or longline option. All are explained in the pattern and marked on pattern pieces where neccesary. Please note, longline options require hook and eye tape or larger tabs as desired. Slips and camisoles can be made out of any stretch fabric. No actual pattern pieces are included, but an easy to follow instruction is on the pattern pieces for these lingerie items. Have fun making up Booby Traps fabulous Joy bralette!

Please be aware if you order both digital patterns and physical items to be shipped, your pattern will only become available when the order is shipped and completed.

How do I print a digital pattern?
Digital Patterns are delivered via the website for registered customers and via email for guest customers.
After completing your purchase, open the pattern from the link on your email receipt (if checking out as a guest) or log in to your account at the top of the homepage (registered customers only) and go to my downloadable products to open your pattern pieces. Simply click on the links - i.e A3 Pattern Pages and print your pattern pieces
Pattern sizes are mostly in A4 and A3 sizes with the exception of a few larger ones. All this information is noted in the product descriptions of each digital pattern so you can be sure prior to purchasing how you will need to have them printed.
A3 size is 497mm x 420mm (width x height)
A4 size is 210mm x 297mm (width X height)
Print the Order Of Assembly in A4 sizing. Be sure you do not change printer settings and keep the pattern at it's original size to ensure a correct print out.
Print the pattern pieces in A3 sizing (if applicable). This can be done on an A3 printer.
Each pattern has a scale box that measures 6cm x 6cm to allow you check the proportions of the printed pattern.
We recommend printing pattern pages on an A3 printer and Order Of Assembly on A4. If you are unable to do this, and need to use an A4 printer, use the “Tile only large pages” in Page Sizing and Handling. Be sure the scale is the correct size by measuring the scale box. It will print on multiple pages.
For patterns that are larger it is recommended they are printed at a print shop. Your receipt email is proof of purchase to allow the waive of the Copyright.
All Booby Traps patterns are designed and labelled in Australian sizing and grading
