Red lace set

My newest set! The bra is made with Marlborough bra by Orange Lingerie. The first time I made this pattern, the fit wasn’t too great. Since then I have made several alterations to perfect the fit for my body, such as: narrowed the centre piece because I have very little space between breasts very narrow cradle gothic arc on center front back strap extension If you notice, these are the alterations that I have always made on my bra recently. The cradle and band on all my recent bra are pretty similar, only the cups are different. It is also important to find out […]

Kawung batik print set

Several months ago I was contacted by Contrado about their new fabric printing service. It was actually the first time I heard about this company. When I checked out their website, I was impressed with the number of fabric options available. They have 80 options of fabrics from canvas, jersey, even scuba and waterproof ripstop!

If you want to order from Contrado, I really recommend to order their swatch pack first to have a feel at their full range of fabric. […]

Black and purple Marlborough bra

More Orange Lingerie pattern! This time it is the Marlborough bra, an underwired bra pattern with power bars on each side of the cups.

Thank you, I'm so excited! 👙 A post shared by Novita (@verypurpleperson) on Apr 30, 2015 at 5:00pm PDT I cut the same size as my Boylston bra without making any muslin, assuming that everything would go as smoothly well as before. Of course […]

Coral floral set

The thing about making bra is that you can never know for sure how the fit is until you finish it. That is why I often have hesitations in trying new bra patterns. My go-to lingerie patterns are Merckwaerdigh’s. They have so many patterns and I can be sure that they will fit me as always, so why trying something new? Well, why not! Lately the bra patterns by Orange lingerie seem to be everywhere around the sewing blogs, so I got curious. At the end, I’m happy that I got curious! For this set I use nude coloured lycra from Okadaya in […]
