Nursing Sleep Bra


I'm currently nursing a newborn baby, and nursing bras are a must.  When I had Clark I bought a nursing sleep bra from Motherhood Maternity, and was surprised at how much I appreciated having it.  It was great for holding nursing pads in place, and was supportive (enough) and comfortable.

Just a week before Miles was born I decided to use up some knit fabric that I had in my stash and make another one.  I used my existing bra as a guide, and came up with a very similar style.


I hadn't intended on sharing this project, but then I figured that someone out there might appreciate it.


It is a lapped front nursing bra with elastic trim.  I have all of the photos to share a tutorial with you, but I'd like to know if there is any interest in a tutorial before I sit down to right it.  Anyone interested in a tutorial?

I'd be interested! I end up wearing normal bras at night and they're not exactly comfy! But I need something to keep the nursing pads in place too!

I'm interested too! It looks comfy and would beat the sports bras I've been using for night time.

YES PLEASE!!! My baby is due in less than 6 weeks, and I my nursing bra is falling apart,and a new one would cost a lot and it usually doesn't fit right. I would love to learn how to make one!!!!!!!!

Yes, I am interested in the tutorial. My baby is due in 10 weeks. I love these but don't want to spend the money on one.
