I wanted to tackle one last challenge before saying goodbye to 2012!
As we woman all know buying lingerie can be an expensive thing, so I wondered if I could make my own, I saw some great patterns in the Burda Style mag. And thought to myself that if I can tackle the scary pleats I can tackle underwear/lingerie !!??!!!
(after working with pleats I feel like I can do anything! Let’s put it to the test)!!
This pattern I found in Burda 1/12
I love this look!
There was one problem!!! Not one piece of suitable fabric to be found in my stash.
So with the urge to make this set I decided to go for….lace!!! (which I bought to make a laced dress)
I did not want to cut the bows of so left them on, this meant that the look of the set will change but I did not care at that point!
For the next set I stick to the look.
This is the end result…. The panties look like a hot pants, but I love, love, love them and the fit is great and they are very comfy!! The top is not all I wanted it to be but it still looks great together.
(The pantie is a bit twisted, I had to pin it in the back since
I have more hips than the mannequin)
I also changed the straps, just made two tunnels and run elastic trough
No zipper needed since the lace is stretchy you can just pull it over youre head.
And the greatest thing is I have four orders for this set!!! My first!!!!!! What a way to end the year!! I will post the progress on that.
And now I feel a bit obsessed with making underwear so I had to try this one to!
Found this great pattern on: panty.hanty.net
I used the left over fabric I had from myBustier from Burda 12/03 Model 112, some lace and a ribbon….. tada!!
