[BAW14]: In the Nude

Apr 3, 2016 | Bra Makes | 10 comments

Hi All!

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 😉

As always, don’t forget to check out the Pinterest boardand pin all of your lovelies over there! And if you’re on Instagram and posting your lovely makes- don’t forget to add in #braaweek!!

You can go here to grab a challenge button and don’t forget to send your bra next month to bra.a.week@gmail.com for the next Round-Up post!

What have you been up to? Anything fun and exciting happening?

Hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend!

    Beautiful! I'm on a mission to find some cream stretch lace for a bodysuit when I go fabric shopping next week because I've also been inspired by all of Madalynne's makes!

    Erin, your set is really lovely. I really want to get sewing some things for me, but my list is long at the moment, so I have to wait. I'm glad I can enjoy your makes though. 🙂

    It's so lovely, Erin!! I love the whole set, and I bet it looks amazing when worn! And the fabric would make a lovely bodysuit! 😉 I really like Madalynne's style, her last bodysuit was gorgeous. Now I need a bodysuit in my live too! 😛

    This is beautiful! I was also thinking of nude lace, but there are a few other bra projects on my list.I love the bottoms; is the leg opening high cut? I'm still looking for my ideal panty pattern.

      Thanks Ilna! The leg opening is fairly high cut- it's the same pattern as the swimwear pattern I used for my high waisted in the Cast Away Collection. 🙂
