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 […]

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 I can wear the bra with this dress without the band peeking. The band has one row of hook and eye instead of three that I usually wear, but the band is still wide as I like it. Making your own bra is so fun […]

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 them. The other one is Merckwaerdigh and I hope they are not going anywhere now. Anyone know any good online stores for lingerie supplies that accept Paypal and can send worlwide? On the other hand, ELingeria is having a closing down sale until May 31st […]

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 I turned it into a bra and panty set. An awesome bra and panty set, that is. The bra pattern is my usual Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230 size 30D altered to 26F. You can see that the shape of the cups is a bit different […]

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 […]

Something new: Making Corset

Have you ever caught something like this? I think it can be called seamstress’ block. These past few weeks I’ve been really wanting to sew something but no idea at all. No, not another dress or skirt or top or pants, I need something new! And my fabric stash is so boring! It didn’t help that the sight of those fabrics made me feel guilty for not wanting them. After days of browsing for ideas, I stumbled upon corset making. I’m not unfamiliar of wearing one as I wore a medical corset in my teenage years to help my scoliosis. […]

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 […]

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 […]
