Racerback bra

Racerback bra

Unfortunately I haven’t continued my adventure in making sports bra, but during my ‘research’ (googling) I came upon this blog post by Katherine. In the post, she has made various types of sports bra prototypes, and one of them was made with Merckwaerdigh BHS10 that I happen to have. I followed Katherine’s lead and modified the pattern so…

Here Kitty Kitty set #2

Here Kitty Kitty set #2

  The kittens are back! You might remember my first set with this cat fabric here, which coincidentally is almost exactly one year ago. I still had enough fabric for another set and have been waiting for the right idea. This time the pattern is Merckwaerdigh BHS10 that contains a mix of 5 different bras, including soft bra,…

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…

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…

Basic necessities

Basic necessities

I’ve often heard that flesh colored underwear is a staple in every women’s wardrobe, which unfortunately I didn’t have any. So this time I stayed clear of my colorful lycra stash and made a couple of basic stuff. The first one was made with Merckwaerdigh PBH30. From the description in Merckwaerdigh’s store: “a lovely mix…

Lace Racerback Bralette

Lace Racerback Bralette

This one is a bit different than my usual bra. No underwires, no openings, no lining, just some stretch lace fabric and elastics! The pattern is Merckwaerdigh BHS10 pattern that I got sometime ago. It contains a mix of 5 different bras, including soft bra, racerback bra, soft lace bra, underwired bra, and a padded…

Blue and white lace set (Danglez DB5)

Blue and white lace set (Danglez DB5)

Recently I just came to a conclusion that my bra size is not quite right (!!!). You might ask how I didn’t realize that sooner? I think that a part of it was caused by years of never finding the right size so I never knew how the right bra size are supposed to feel. Another…

Black Lingerie set

Black Lingerie set

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…

Red lace set

Red lace set

A little sewing project that I did yesterday, my instant gratification! Of course it was a new set of bra and two panties. This time I didn’t used my usual Pin-Up Girls pattern, but Merckwaerdigh PBH30. The pattern is for push-up underwired bra, bustier, bodysuit, and thong bodysuit. I’ve used the pattern before to make this…

Peach and grey lingerie set

Peach and grey lingerie set

Making bra and panties is a sort of instant gratification for me. They only need little fabrics and don’t need much space for cutting the pattern. And with each lingerie project that I’ve finished, I gained more knowledge on what way is the best for attaching things. This new set was made with bra and…
