Black & White

Saturday, September 24, 2011

I am SO excited. I finally got to spend some time with my sewing machine and serger. I went to the fabric store on Thursday night and bought some flannel in black and white plaid & polka dots, black stretch mesh, black and white chiffon with little starlings on it, grey/black/red brushed cotton plaid, and some off white eyelet lace. To break up all the black and white, I bought a little floral cotton with a polka dot chiffon coordinate, in chocolate and raspberry. Today I went black and white crazy.

Last winter I made myself some sleep shorts out of my black and red lumberjack plaid... I find them so comfortable, and the husband finds them effortlessly sexy - the perfect piece of lingerie! I pre-washed all of my flannel yesterday, and it has gotten even softer and fuller after the first wash... They are in a french knicker style and could be worn under a fall or winter skirt.


I added a little cut-out lace applique to the polka dot pair, and satin bows to the plaid pair. I'm thinking I will list these individually and as a set.


Last but certainly not least, I made a bias cut camisole out, what I call, the starling chiffon. I picked up a few yards of this amazing stretch mesh which I used to trim the top and the panties. I love wearing bias cut chiffon camisoles, especially under sweaters in the winter... they make my winter uniform feel slightly more pretty.

I am getting so, so, so excited to list these on Etsy. I'm going to try to get a few more photos and a few more items sewn, and re-vamp my shop!

  2. These are so gorgeous! And they make me miss living in the States where there are fabric stores everywhere! Buying fabric online just isn't the same, cause you can't feel it and match it with others like you might normally do.
