Two New Sets!

Wednesday, April 20, 2011



I found a seersucker plaid that, I swear, is exactly the same fabric that I had a shirt made out of when I was just a kid. I wore that shirt to the Oro Worlds Fair (yes, an honest to goodness Worlds fair), in the parade that kicked off the ceremonies. I love that shirt. I still remember, my mom tied a ribbon in my hair that day!

I added little navy floral ruffles to the hip (I don't think I can sew anything without a ruffle), and navy floral flaps to the bra.


I think it turned out really cute, and it totally reminds me of a country fair. Speaking of which, I must make an effort to go to the Oro Worlds Fair this year! I am thinking about lining the bottoms and making the sample into a swimsuit for myself. I lined the cups in super-soft jersey so the bra could be worn alone.



I have also been eyeing this fabric for a while now... It is soft, gauzy, and the perfect shades of blue with an accent of red. I should have bought more because I would really like to make a summery dress out of it. It is light as air!



I added little tiny blue bows to the hip, at the side seam. I used the prettiest fold-over elastic. I like to use fold-over elastic the best, but find it hard to source locally. It finishes so much nicer. This one in particular has a picot edge, and a little bit of iridescent glitter - it completes the sea side look.

I've listed these in my Etsy shop at separates and a set! The serger is making my life so much easier, I'm not sure how I ever survived without it. I can sew a set so much faster than I could before.

  1. These are so cute. I love the plaid one- it looks so pretty yet comfortable which you don't often find with lingerie.

  2. I love these too. I'm just a sucker for anything frilly! lol
    I'd love a serger, I think I'd be intimidated by it at first though!

  5. So pretty! Oh, I want a serger so badly. I don't think I'd make as good use of it as you do, though!
