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!
