Another lingerie set! Nothing really new with them, I use my usual Pin-up girls pattern for the bra in size 30B and Merckwaerdich pattern for the panties. All notions are from Merckwaerdigh at ebay, which is enough to make one bra and two panties.
The lingerie set is made with lycra and stretch lace in very soft rose colour. The pattern is for bra with or without underwires, I use underwires this time and they do make the shape better.
The stretch lace actually has butterfly pattern on it. I use the lace on both upper and lower cup, so the whole cup is transparent. The lower cup is lined and the upper cup has thin elastic across the top so it will ‘grab’ better. I use the scalloped part of the lace on the upper cup and also on the middle of the front band. Here’s a tutorial by Sigrid that I used for attaching the elastic on that part.
This is the set that I’m really satisfied so far. After making several bras, I think I finally got the rhythm and was able to make this one without making too many mistakes. When making bras, you can only see the fit when you’re all done, so it takes several times to find what works best for you. There are hundreds of little things that you can adjust. My first bra is fine and they are now part of my daily wear, but then I feel that I should have cut the elastic for the band a little bit shorter so they will be tighter.
I really love this new set, they look so pretty and delicate. Sorry for no blurry photo to show the fit on me. Since the cups are transparent, it is impossible to take even a blurry picture without looking indecent (-_-;) You just have to believe me that they fit really well!
