Colorful dotty set

So here is makeBra #DL05 in colordul dotty lycra fabric! I also made more alterations to the cups because this pattern is one…

Makebra Petite #DL05: In progress

Makebra Petite #DL05: In progress

makeBra recently released a new downloadable pattern and I was quite excited about it. I’ve been wanting to try one of their patterns, but the sizes are too big for me. The newest pattern, makeBra #DL05 is drafted for smaller sizes, featuring foam lined two part cups and underwires. For me, the most interesting part is that the bridge…

Sewing in 2013

Can’t you believe that it is already the end of the year again?? As usual I love to put together all things that I have sewn in one post to see how I have been doing this year. Some pieces got worn a lot, and some don’t get much wearing time. I think it helps…

Dotty red lingerie set

The first time I made my first pair of strapless bra, I made my own foam lining because I couldn’t find it locally. This time I want to use the proper ones so I ordered them from Makebra. Their foam lining is 4 mm thick and sold in 20x145cm (8″x57″) pieces. I bought two pieces, white and black….
