A little sewing project that I did yesterday, my instant gratification! Of course it was a new set of bra and two panties. This time I didn’t used my usual Pin-Up Girls pattern, but Merckwaerdigh PBH30. The pattern is for push-up underwired bra, bustier, bodysuit, and thong bodysuit. I’ve used the pattern before to make this blue bodysuit.
I made a little alteration to the bridge between the bra cups. They were a bit too wide on me so I simply shaved both sides a little bit to narrow it.
The fabric was 4 m of red stretch lace from Merckwaerdigh ebay store and I wanted to use it for the whole set without using lycra fabric at all. When I was looking for a panties pattern that can fulfill this restrictions, I found this Lace Tanga Panties pattern at Burdastyle. It is a PDF pattern, and it’s free!
The lace was only 13.5 cm wide (5.3 inches), I just made the top lower than what the pattern specified. This panties style was actually not my usual style, and I was a bit worried that they were not comfortable. I made only one at first and tried them on, and they were surprisingly quite comfy! Just a little bit too big but it was easy to fix by stitching deeper on the center front and center back seams.
I must say that this set is quite pretty!
