Merckwaerdigh Wings (BHST2) and Harriet bra

Recently Amy from Cloth Habit has just released her newest pattern, the Harriet bra. You’re probably already familiar with her previous pattern, the Watson bra, that is very popular. The Harriet bra is an underwired bra with balconette neckline and 3 piece cup seam. The sizes range is pretty great, from 28A-42H. I think this is… Continue Reading

Neon pink lace set and harness bralette

Neon pink lace set and harness bralette

Here’s another Merckwaerdigh BHS10 view C that I’ve made several times! The lace is stretch lace in neon pink that is very hard to photograph. I’ve used similar lace in different color to make a couple of set here. As usual, the cups are lined with non-stretch lining and the band is lined with powernet. I… Continue Reading

Red lace set

First post in 2017! I have so many finished sewing items that haven’t been posted yet. I’m trying to work through them though, taking pictures and posting eventually. I found this red stretch lace in a small fabric store in my neighborhood. It is sort of an outlet store that sells out of print and end… Continue Reading

Esme and Bella Panties – Evie la Luve

I stumbled upon Evie la Luve‘s patterns when I was browsing my IG feed the other day. As I’m always interested in trying out patterns, I got myself a couple of panties patterns, the Esme and Bella panties in this pattern bundle. You can also buy them separately. The Esme panties have cross over design, while the… Continue Reading

Favorite pattern – Merckwaerdigh BHS10

These three bras are made with the same pattern: Merckwaerdigh BHS 10. This pattern has now become my favourite! Here you can see how the same pattern made with different fabric can look quite different. This one is made with grey jersey and has a racerback with no closure. You can see from the photo that… Continue Reading

Red lace set

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… Continue Reading

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! Then… Continue Reading

Polka dot plunge bra

Polka dot plunge bra

Another self-drafted plunge bra! I want something smooth to be worn under T-shirt, so no pretty lace this time. The fabric is lycra in black with purple dots. Since I don’t have much space between the breasts, I find that a plunge bra with its lowered center front is comfortable. I also found that I have… Continue Reading

This pattern uses different method for finding the bra size. It needs two measurements: underbust size and wire size. With these two measurements, the bra size… Continue Reading
