[BAW14]: In the Nude
Happy Spring! How is your spring going? Here in southern Ontario we’ve been surprised by more snow- and just when I thought it was safe to take off my snow tires! But I’m not letting it dampen my spring feels 🙂 So for my first make this month, I’ve decided to make something so light and airy, that will be super comfortable and weightless! Almost like I’m wearing nothing at all!
I LOVE this new set, with my nude stretch lace & new nude elastics (Coming soon to my Etsy!)
I made this using my standard bralette pattern, reduced slightly to accommodate for the stretch in the fabric and with a longline band. I made the bottoms using my high-waisted bathing suit bottoms pattern- because there’s really no difference between swimwear bottoms and panties. (also coming soon to my Etsy!)
I absolutely adore my new stretch lace, it is so soft and light, and so pretty! And I just love this nude it feels so fresh! I lined the bralette with some nude 15 denier as well- and it’s just perfect so soft- and the best part about lining is that you have all enclosed seams, so the inside can be as beautiful as the outside!
I know what you must be thinking now- were are all the pictures of you in this beautiful set? And the answer to that is: my camera woman (hey mom) is away at a sailing class this morning, and after a very long day full of day-drinking at the Kingston Craft Beer Festival with friends yesterday (that turned into a super late and fun night) I am not quite full of enough ambition to set up a camera and do my own photos. So for now, just the flat photos will have to do 🙂 This set deserves nicer photos than I can take this morning 😛 so more will be coming soon 🙂
I’m also loving this proportion of longline bra with the high-waisted undies! It reminds me of something that Madalynne would wear- and I’m feeling so inspired by her style right now, have you seen all the bodysuits she’s doing? I feel like I might have to make myself a bodysuit too 😉
