Now to start working on complete size runs...

Tuesday, November 16, 2010


I have not been nearly as productive as I have hoped these last few days off. I spent one day relaxing, one day running around with my mom, and I'm on my second day of sewing. I have a bunch of sewing I'd like to do for myself (like another pair of pants), but this is so much more fun.


I picked up a couple yards of this yummy black and pink polka dot satin. I tweaked around my bra pattern to be a three piece cup, as opposed to a two piece and it turned out really well! You can't really tell from the picture, but the top of the bra cup is made of lace.


I also worked on this set (which is my favourite) of nude lace over black jersey. The bra is sooooo comfy and is going to become a part of my personal collection, but will be making more for sale. I slightly ruched the lace and topped it off with dusty rose ribbons.


I approached a local store owner about carrying a few of my pieces and she seemed super interested. So, my goal (after I make myself a new pair of pants) is to make some duplicates of my panties and bras, in different sizes.
So, in essence, my next day and a half is going to be terribly boring... so I am hoping I get some positive feedback from my new stuff to get me through the ho-hum.

  1. These are gorgeous! Good for you. I've been trying to make a bra that fits for months (I have large breasts so architecture is a necessity!). These are lovely confections for small busted women. You should do an Etsy store too...

  2. Kwik Sew has some great bra patterns with underwire. I think you could easily line them and put a thin pre-formed cup (I have seen these at my local fabric shop) between the layers.

    I am petite but curvy and finding a bra was always a challenge.

    Thank you for your lovely comments :)

  3. Hello Sarah, I LOVE these two sets! I've only been sewing pants from a 70's pattern too but couldn't find one for bras. Anyway the pants I've made are nowhere as cute as yours :) I'm going to check your etsy store, these are really too good!

  4. I am in awe!! You really have a great eye for color and fabric combinations, and the craftsmanship looks impeccable!

    Have been contemplating trying my hand at sewing my own lingerie, but have not managed to get over my shear terror at the idea yet ;) I've made a mess of the elastic on both pairs of tap pants I've attempted, and am having trouble moving past that debacle.
    Where do you find your wonderful fabrics?
