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 pattern was also used a couple of times before but this time was in the right size. I started with size 30D and shortened the band slightly to make it size 28E. This is the only alteration I did on this pattern. I found out […]

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 now the summer holiday is over and the computer is mine again! This is a slip that I finished sometime ago. I’ve been wanting to have a proper slip to wear under some of my dresses. The pattern is Merckwaerdigh O2, the description of the […]

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 of an underwired bra, bustier, body and thong body, all with a deep cleavage and pushing the bust up. This pattern requires some experience in handmade lingerie.”  I was inspired by Amy’s beautiful longline bra and modified this pattern to be a longline too. But […]

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 bra. It is wonderful that you get 5 bra in one! I made the soft bra on the upper right, but changed the back to the racerback one. It is basically a bralette as the bra doesn’t offer much support. I usually wear store-bought soft […]

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 part of it was because I haven’t find the right way to find my correct bra size. I will post about this in the future. To cut it short, I found out that my bra size is not 30C as I’ve believed before but a […]

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 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 […]

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 blue bodysuit. I made a little alteration to the bridge between the bra cups. They were a bit too wide on me so I simply shaved both sides a little bit to narrow it. The fabric was 4 m of red stretch lace from Merckwaerdigh […]

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 lingerie notions set from Merckwaerdigh. The set has peach lycra fabric with textured swirl pattern, stretch lace in peach and grey, and grey elastics. I especially love the pretty shoulder straps!   The bra pattern is Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230, a classic full band bra that […]

Cotton knit lingerie set

Another new set of bra and panties that I made yesterday. Nothing really special, no frills nor lace as I wanted something simple this time. The fabric is cotton knit by Liberty of London. I need about half yard to make the whole set. The bra pattern is Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230, size 30C. This is a classic full band bra that can be made with or without underwires. I made mine with underwires for better support. I used to think that I don’t like underwired bra because I’ve never felt comfortable in underwired store-bought bras. It turned out that […]

Baby blue bodysuit

I sewed something today! No, not a dress, but a lingerie bodysuit. I was always curious with this type of lingerie, but couldn’t bring myself to buy something so expensive that I wouldn’t wear often. The pattern is Merckwaerdigh PBH30 that I won sometime ago at Merckwaerdigh ebay auction. The pattern is for push-up underwired bra, bustier, bodysuit, and thong bodysuit. The fabric and notions are also from Merckwaerdigh, but the tiny bow and the hook and eye set is from Yuzawaya. I should have used white hook and eye set, but that was I had in hand at the moment. Although I usually […]
