Black & White

Monday, April 16, 2012


When I graduated from Design School I landed the most fun job through my part-time job at a fabric store.  The position was in a textile design studio.  I met my best friend in the whole-wide-world there - it was a studio full of fun, young people who loved their jobs and had so much fun at work... It was a lot of fun, and I really miss the people to this day.  

Recently my manager from that position contact me because she is starting a new business - one she had talked about for years - called Dye It Black.  She specializes in re-dying your faded blacks back to their full glory.  I love this idea because it prevents "old" clothes from winding up in the waste bin... and I wear a whole lotta black.

So, she and I are teaming up a bit, and will be collaborating on a few black pieces.  I sewed these power net  mesh panties yesterday.  They are great because the netting is stretchy and soft, yet firm enough to hold you in a little bit.  Because it is such a stable net, I was able to avoid using elastic around the legs, which helps prevent panty lines.



I also started a striped set, and listed these on Etsy last night.  Tops to follow... as well as some garter belts and whatnot...

  1. This new Dye it Black business is brilliant. I have thrown out so many black items it's just ridiculous. I hope she's hit a gold mind here! :D

  2. I am a new follower of your blog, and I just love everything that you have been making! I am an especially big fan of these panties- as a woman of a *ahem* sizeable derriere and thighs, I am always on the lookout for cute underwear that won't bind around my legs. These are brilliant!
