How To Cut Breast Cup Or Bustier Pattern: Tailoring 101

To cut a breast cup or bustier pattern is very simple and not as difficult as people might think. And for this reason, I have decided to explain how to cut breast cup or a bustier pattern in tailoring.

I have always been of opinion that tailoring business is lucrative if you are creative and sew a fantastic cloth for your customers.

How to cut a breast cut


Step one

Get your tape rule, ruler, measurements you have taken, chalk or pencil.

The measurements I used for cutting this particular breast cup in this article is shown below:

Nipple point: 11

Nipple point round measurement: 35.5

Under bust: 14.5

Under bust round measurement: 29

Half length: 17

Half length round measurement: 28.5

Shoulder: 15

Nipple to nipple: 7

Arm hole: 17 (optional)


Step two

Fold your material into two

Step three

Chalk out the nipple point, under bust, and half length of the measurement on the folded material

Step four

Since I have folded the material into two, the nipple to nipple that will be chalk out on the material is half of the nipple to nipple point I have measured which 3.5 inches

Step five

Give allowance of 2 inches

Step six

Step seven

Step eight

Cut it out and launch the under bust. When joining, ensure the launching at the under bust meet


Step nine

Confirm what you have cut out with the measurement i.e. round measurement nipple point, round measurement under bust, and round measurement half length


I hope you now have a good understanding of how to cut the shape.
