HOW TO: Making Your 6″ Lace Go a Little Farther!


Hi All,
Quick little tutorial today, all about using your favourite 6″ stretch laces for your Madalynne X Simplicity 8229 bra. Although this could really apply to any bra where the lace that you’ve fallen in love with is just a bit too narrow for your pattern!
This was inspired by the 8229 because it recommends 8″ wide lace, which is not the most common lace to find out there. I really wanted to use this 6.75″ lace that I have, and it turned out that in my size that was perfectly fine- but then I wondered why you needed such a wide lace- and I found the culprit!

[Style Search]: Week 6 Lingerie Wardrobe


Hi All!

Did you really think I’d make it too much longer without talking about lingerie?

It’s really a huge part of my wardrobe, and I have to say that after going through my style search, I realize that I haven’t focused my bra making towards a perfect ‘bra wardrobe’. Looking back, my bra making motivations have been much more focused on trying new techniques, fabrics or styles rather than picking specific beautiful things that fit with my wardrobe or lifestyle.
