Lingerie sets

If you’ve sewn lingerie before, you’ll know it can be addictive when you have the right fabrics, notions and patterns. I was only aiming to make the Orange lingerie Esplanade bra as my second entry for Pattern Review’s lace contest.

The lace was too lovely to leave sitting in my stash.
The powermesh was lacey too so there’s 100% lace on this pieces as well.
While these are two different colours, these lace fabrics still worked together really well.
Here’s a work in progress shot before sewing in the bra cups.
I added bias to the seams so I would use boning in the seams.
In the pic above, you can see how I’ve also used the lace to line the hook and eye shield.
Within the contest time limit I was able to make matching knickers. I used the low rise pants from the Papercut’s Soma swimsuit for this pair of knickers.
Then the obsession kicked in or the ‘what -if’ thinking started. I traced off rtw G-string and made a pair with this lace too. The elastic was bought from Pitt Trading.
Then all kinds of ‘crazy’ set in and again I traced off a rtw lace hipster knickers for another type using 4cm wide lace on the edges. There was still enough lace left and I made a Pinup Girls classic bra.
So now I’ll leave my lingerie stash along and get back to my planned project – Kelly Anorak – which I know is going to have a different challenges based on the reviews I’ve been reading.
