I’ve been making lingerie for sometime now, and my drawer is happily filled with pink, blue, peach, red, polka dot and floral ones when I realized that I didn’t have a black one. You know, an ordinary black lace set, which every woman should have.
It happened that I have all the fabrics and notions for this particular set, so off I went to the sewing table (which is also our dining table).
For the pattern, I used Merckwaerdigh Mix30. From the pattern envelope: ‘Pattern MIX30 from Dutch design Merckwaerdigh with a good supporting underwired bra, lovely hipster pantie & all lace knickers. This pattern does requires some experience in home made lingerie.’
I’ve used the pantie pattern numerous times but only used the bra pattern once for this black and white set. The bridge between the cups was a bit wide in this set, so I shortened the gap about 0.8 cm. This resulted in much better fit. That was the only alteration I made for the pattern.
I’m very happy with the result and wished to share some proper pictures but photographing black fabric was quite difficult! I adjusted the lighting a bit to show the details but it made the black looked rather washed out. Anyway, this set looked even better in real life and most of all, fit beautifully. Now I have my own black lingerie set!
Bra and panties pattern is Merckwaerdigh Mix30 (bra, pantie, knickers), bra size 30C, panties size S.
