Unfortunately, no progress at all on my dresses sewing projects. I got sick for a week and then summer came in full force, melting my sewing mojo with the heat. So I’ve been spending the last few days lounging around in front of the fan. How do you get your sewing mojo back after a period of stagnation?

Anyway, I desperately want to sew something yesterday but cutting a dress seemed too much of work to do. In times like this, I always turn to sewing lingerie. It’s small, quick, with almost always cute result. Perfect for curing my sewing fatigue!

The fabric is double-gauze knit by nani IRO. Some of you might remember the fabric from this racerback dress that I made back in 2009. This is one of those things that is cute but somehow has never been worn often. In fact I think I’ve worn it about twice after I made it. So I cut the dress and made a lingerie set out of it.

The bra pattern is my usual Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230, size 30C. Since the knit fabric has lots of stretch, I lined the bridge and lower cup with powernet in nude color.

The panties pattern is Kwik Sew 2075, out of print pattern bought in a recent sale in Kwik Sew site. I made view D, panty with high-cut legs in size S.

The dress was just enough for one bra and two panties set and I’m really happy with the results. The fabric is very soft and comfortable against the skin and of course the dots pattern is so cute!

Bra pattern is Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230 from ElingerieA, size 30C

A wedding in Saturday

Saturday wedding Saturday wedding

Sidra’s father got married last weekend. We weren’t able to come due to several reasons, but Sidra’s father came up with this wonderful idea to ask someone (which is his brother) to hold an iPhone during the wedding ceremony so the three of us could view it live via Skype! Yay for technology!

Several minutes before the ceremony, Sidra came to me and asked for the outfit that he wore on my wedding. Well, of course he couldn’t wear them again, it was 4 years ago! Fortunately he didn’t mind wearing something else. He was quite excited to see his father and his stepmother-to-be on screen. But just like other kids, he got bored after several minutes. “Why are the people talking so much? How long it is going to take?” etc. The good thing with attending a wedding online is you can lie down or do something else (like rolling around on the floor – Sidra did this) when you got bored.

Anyway it was a beautiful Saturday wedding. Both the bride and groom looked so radiant and happy. I wish Sidra’s father and his loveliest bride the best things in life and a lifetime of happiness. Maybe someday we can take a family picture together, Sidra and his double set of parents. I think that would be nice.
