6 Tips to Make Your Panties Look & Feel RTW


Hi All,

This week, since we’re all in the midst of sewing up a storm for the #SewPantyParty, I thought I’d throw out some of my favourite tips for sewing up undies, and specifically tips I use to make my undies look and feel the most RTW. So let’s jump in!

Sew Panty Party!


Hi All!

It’s getting to that point again where I look in my drawers and realize that my underwear collection is looking a little sad. If you’re anything like me, then you’re super happy and eager to make yourself a new bra, but then completely lose motivation when it comes to making the panties to go with it.

I was in this same situation last May, so I dedicated that month to panties, and I thought it was about time to do that again, but this time I thought I’d make it more of a party!

Join me for the Sew Panty Party!! 

It’s going to be a pretty simple and inclusive thing- All you have to do to join is to sew yourself some panties this March! And if you like, you can share them on instagram with the hastag #sewpantyparty or on whatever platform you love most! And of course, send them in for the round-up at the end of the month!

Hi All!

Another month of bra news! How is time passing so fast?? And February has been an amazing month in bra making! So let’s just jump right into it!

First we have some pattern news, the big pattern release this month (that you’ve all been loving and making!) is the Harriet from Cloth Habit. It has beautiful seamlines, and really inclusive sizing! definitely worth checking out

To go along with that, our lingerie star from last month, Rachel of Maker Style, put out a podcast with Amy of Cloth Habit to talk all things bras

Rachel also put out this post on keeping your lingerie elastics organized– which is super helpful for your sewing space.

One of the first makers and lovers of the Harriet was Novita of VeryPurplePerson, who also did a cool comparison between her Merckwaerdigh and Cloth Habit patterns, which is worth checking out if you’re a drafting nerd like me!

Seamwork did an interview this month with a new lingerie designer – turned pattern maker Sophie Hines, who released one of her geometric inspired designs to the sewing world this month!

Exposing the Unders: Pink Gingham Sweetheart


 

Hi All!

 

I’m searching back in my archives again this week to expose the unders on an old favourite- my pink gingham suit from the first year of Bra-A-Week, Week 23. This time I thought I would pick a swimsuit because I feel the start of swimwear fever coming on (I know I have it already!) And the best place to start is definitely with this one, because it’s pretty iconic for me- I still have lots of my profile pictures out there with this suit!

A lot of my swimwear is very bra-like, especially this one, it’s really no different from going through like the other bras so let’s jump right into the unders of this suit!
