Latte at Midnight Set + GIVEAWAY!!


Hi All!

I have a new set for you!! YAY! I feel like it’s been WAY too long since I made my last bra- and I really got the sewing bug in my new studio, so I thought it would be good to start off with something gorgeous!

 

 

I’m calling this set Latte at Midnight because it’s with my *NEW*  Midnight Bra Tulle & Bamboo and my Latte findings! I’m OBSESSED with this new colour!

So, of course, before I get too far into this post- I have to tell you more about the GIVEAWAY!!

This giveaway is being hosted on Instagram for #BRAugust2017 ! I am this Tuesday’s sponsor- for Matching Set (of course!).

To enter: post a photo to instagram this Tuesday (Aug 22)

So.. what am I giving away? – The kit to make your own set just like this of course!

although I do have some other beautiful colour options for you to choose too!

Of course these are all available on my Etsy too!

Now back to the set!!

This bra, as always, is self-drafted. I based the fit off of my favourite Black Beauty bra, so it’s quite similar in cup shape.

The cup is a 5 piece cup, lower cup split into 3, upper cup, and powerbar. The bra is made of two layers of tulle with opposing directions of stretch. And the other perk about using a double layer of tulle is that you can use a stitch and flip method and encase all of your seams inside- so that it’s beautifully finished inside and out!

I love the way the Midnight goes with the Latte- to me this is just the perfect colour combo 🙂

And some matching panties of course! This pair is also self drafted, a solid front with these tulle panel details. The back is cut like a boyshort with a seam down the middle- which I find extra comfy!

I felt this bra deserved more than one pair of undies to go with it! So I made another matching pair- a cute little thong, with a double strap!

I absolutely love these undies- they are so soft and comfy- and the thong goes so well under anything! For this one I use a bit of bamboo for some self binding along the leg openings which is just the ultimate for soft comfort!

It was so awesome doing the first photos in the new studio too! So bright and airy! Gibby even got  a turn!

I’m pretty in love with this new set 🙂

Have you been sewing anything that you love lately? Don’t forget that next week is the August #BraNews – so make sure to send me all the gorgeous things you’ve been making!!

and of course don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

Happy Sunday!!

    Hi Erin, I can see that you used latte picot elastic on the edges of the the panties with the tulle panels, but it looks like you may also have used “something” midnight-blue along the edge of the tulle before the picot elastic? I can’t quite see… Did you do something cool and tricky?

      Actually there’s no trick- it’s just the double layer of tulle folding back on itself that gives the more solid midnight blue look 🙂

    love the bra! Did you use sheer cup lining for the bridge/frame

    This is such a pretty combo Erin. I’m wondering if the kit might have enough bamboo to make the Shelley bra with only using the tulle in the top half of the bra {where lace often goes}. Does my question make sense?

      Thanks Sue! I’m very sure there would be enough! there’s a whole 1/2 meter- so you would have to make some pretty covering undies with very few scraps leftover to not have enough left for some bra cup pieces! That’s a great idea for a set!

    Very pretty! Love the contrast of the latte with the navy.

    SO in love with this set!! I looooove the black/latte colour combination but would never have thought to pair the black fabric with beige findings – and am blown away by how chic it looks! Definitely got me inspired to make some more lingerie soon…and blog about the last set I made a few months ago but haven’t had the chance to post about yet haha. Always love seeing your makes! 😀 xxx

      Thanks Maddy! It’s actually more of a midnight blue/navy colour with the latte- but I think a black would be fantastic too! Can’t wait to see your new set!

    Gorgeous set! May I ask how you finished/stabilised the inner edge of the power bar (above the upper cup attachment). Your drafting skills are awesome!

      Thanks Susan! I didn’t actually have to stabilize that edge. When you use bra tulle in a double layer with opposing graininess, it gives you a very sturdy fabric! – It is sewn together and topstitched there- but that’s all 🙂
