Bra-A-Week: Week 18


Hi All!!

It’s Week 18 already! And I was feeling a little retro inspired!

You might recognize this fabric from the giveaway options 🙂 I thought since it wasn’t chosen that I should make a suit with it! And I haven’t made a retro suit in quite a while!

My favourite part of this suit are the exposed bra cups- with the power-bar turned halter strap! I think it gives such a bombshell look! 🙂 Loving it!!

The back is just a straight-across top because the front straps go to a halter, and I finished the top edge with black binding- which I think gives it a really sharp finish!

Instead of a regular scoop I thought I would also mix it up by having a more ‘V’ back, and bringing it a little lower 🙂

And my second favourite part of this suit is the detail I added to the bottom- I did some colour blocking with black around the legs at the bottom- I feel like it give a more slimming illusion of a higher cut leg with the better coverage and retro vibe of a lower cut leg!

Always fun for playing in the garden with your puppy!

I just love everything about this suit- I think it makes me look so shapely!

YAY!! I’m so happy that summers here!!

And now on to your lovely makes from this week!!

First we have this lovely set from Sofia of Silver Lining Atelier!

Sofia has been away with a sick sewing machine! But it’s all better now- and just in time to make some more beautiful bras- like this foam-cup one!!

This is the second part of her lingerie course, and her first foam bra- a two-piece, balconette cup covered in lace! Very pretty! Don’t forget to go over to Sofia’s blog and see her post about it!!

Next we have a beautiful set from Michelle of Michelle’s Creations!

Michelle made this from the Sewy Rebecca pattern, adjusting for her omega shape, lowering the bridge and modifying for a flat spot (what a pro!!) So pretty with that lace- and gorgeous touch with the crystal on the front- absolutely stunning!

She also made these cute panties to complete the set! Love the pink and ivory- so Spring! Don’t forget to check out Michelle’s post over on her blog!

Next we have a very pretty set from new contributor Lisette!

Lisette made this bra from this inspiration photo– and what an amazing job she did! Very impressive! I am so in love with this colour combination too! I think it’s much prettier than the original!

She made this using molded foam cups that she cut down to shape, and a pattern that she took from an old RTW bra- absolutely gorgeous set! Love it!!
