I stumbled upon Evie la Luve‘s patterns when I was browsing my IG feed the other day. As I’m always interested in trying out patterns, I got myself a couple of panties patterns, the Esme and Bella panties in this pattern bundle. You can also buy them separately.
The Esme panties have cross over design, while the Bella panties are made with stretch lace allover. Both panties have very low waistline, so you might have to pay attention with this. I happen to love low waistline, and usually lower every panties pattern so these patterns are perfect for me.
Both patterns come with instructions that is very clear with step by step pictures.
One thing that I like about using stretch lace for panties is that usually you don’t need to use lots of elastics so they can be sewed up pretty quickly. That is the case with these panties, they only need some length of foldover elastic to finish the waistline.
I got the stretch lace locally in my neighbourhood in Tokyo. It is very pretty with white thread around the edges and blue accents.
I don’t talk much about the bra because I have made this pattern several times. It is my favorite Merckwaerdigh BHS10. And now I think I have found new favourite for lace panties pattern!
Panties pattern are Esme and Bella panties (PDF) by Evie la Luve.
Bra pattern is Merckwaerdigh BHS10 size 30E.
Time for another dog fashion! This is the second time I made a dog yukata or summer kimono. The first one is for Bashu, a Chinese Crested that we fostered 3 years ago. This time it is for our beloved ten years old Chinese crested, Fuwawa. Bashu and Fuwawa were in the same breeder before they were given up to the shelter. Bashu has been adopted to a nice family and Fuwawa was adopted by us.
The pattern is Kawaii Kimono by Millamilla in size M. MillaMilla is a Japanese dog patternmaker, the original patterns are in Japanese but you can also buy the English version of their patterns in their English site and etsy shop.
The instructions are pretty easy and straightforward. The kimono has a velcro closure on the front so it is very easy to put on. I added a leash hole on the back part so Fuwawa can wear her harness underneath the kimono. The thing with making dogwear is you only need very little fabric to make it (unless you have a very big dog of course!), so it is a great projects for scraps.
Here is Fuwawa in her new kimono. I think the color complements her fur color quite well!
