Bronze bra and panties set

Bronze bra and panties set

These are Merckwaerdigh BHST2, underwired bra with low back. The panties patterns are Merckwaerdigh MIX30 and Merckwaerdigh Mix25 that I have used several times before. The set was made with a Merckwaerdigh kit which includes fabrics and all notions, enough for one bra and two panties. Using kit like this is great because I can skip the mix and match step…

Sewing in 2013

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

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….

Red plaid set (Merckwaerdigh MIX30)

Red plaid set (Merckwaerdigh MIX30)

A lingerie set with plaid lycra and black stretch lace. The plaid lycra is from elingeria closing down sale a few months ago. I’m still sad that they are closed! The stretch lace and lingerie notions are from Merckwaerdigh ebay store. The pattern is Merckwaerdigh MIX30, I have used the panties pattern numerous times. The bra…

Nude and black slip (Merckwaerdigh O2)

In spite of the lack of the sewing posts in this blog, I’ve been sewing a lot lately but never really got the chance to post them. During summer holiday, the house is always full of Sidra’s friends. They have recently found Minecraft, which means that I can’t use the computer during the day. But…

Guest Post at Craft Sanctuary: My journey to find the perfect bra

Hello! Sorry for all the bra photos! Today I’m guest posting at Craft Sanctuary about my journey in finding the perfect bra. It is a great personal experience and each time I learned some new things about my own body. The journey is still going on by the way! Thank you for having me, Ashley!

Pink bra set

Pink bra set

A new set! It is made with lingerie kit that I won in a Merckwaerdigh ebay auction sometime ago. The bra pattern is my usual Pin-Up Girls #1230 size 30D that has been altered to 26F. The cups are lowered a bit for a demi style. I also changed the back style a bit so…

Baby blue gingham set

Baby blue gingham set

A new set of bra and two panties made with ‘Vichy’ kit from ELingeria. I bought the kit sometime ago and unfortunately all the kit is now not available because the store is closing. I’m a bit sad actually because I only have two sources for lingerie pattern and supplies and ELingeria is one of…

Here Kitty Kitty set

Here Kitty Kitty set

When you came across a roll of lycra fabric with feline faces all over it, there’s two things that you can do: dismissed it immediately as tacky and moved on to another fabric; or mesmerized by those little eyes staring at you and suddenly found yourself paying for the fabric. I was the latter. Then…

Underbust Corset: Finished! (Laughing Moon 113)

Underbust Corset: Finished! (Laughing Moon 113)

I finally finished my corset! It’s not perfect but I’m quite proud of the result. The corset has black satin binding, handstitched lace on the front, and black round cord lacing. I’ve also added a back modesty panel using Electra Design’s technique. Here’s what I’ve done since the last corset posting, using techniques described in…

Continuing the corset

Continuing the corset

My journey in corset making continues! I’ve taken in the corset seams and shaped the waist a bit to hopefully give it a more hourglass shape. And after postponing for sometime, I finally got the courage to cut into my precious broche coutil. The instruction is for single layer underbust, but I decided to use…

Corset in progress

Corset in progress

I finally had a chance to start on my corset! I started by comparing the Laughing Moon Underbust corset pattern with the pattern from the Japanese corset book. The Japanese corset pattern is very simple with only four pieces: front, side front, side back, and center back; while the LM pattern has six pieces with…
