[BAW20]: A Little Lace on the Side

May 15, 2016 | Bra Makes | 6 comments

Hi All,

I think at this point it’s pretty clear that I love a good boyshort. I’m filling my drawer with as many pair as I can this month! And I wanted to do a little twist on the original this week with some lace on the side.


I really love the look of lace on a boyshort, but I find the ones that are made entirely of lace are very cheeky, require a very wide lace trim, and aren’t always as conforming to the shape of the leg since they have to be cut straight along the leg to allow for the decorative edge of the lace.


My solution to adding a bit of lace, was to add some lace side panels 🙂 Then I finished them with the fold-over elastic for the black, and the 3/8″ band elastic for the nude 🙂



And of course, I don’t like to show you things that you can’t have too- so all of the fabrics and elastics are available in The Emerald Studio Etsy!

And along those lines, I can tell you that the boyshort pattern is coming along very soon! 🙂


I think that this combo with lace might be some of my favourites! I think it adds just the perfect amount of pretty and fun and interesting, without compromising any of the functionality or comfort!

How has your week in sewing been?
