Addiction?

When you see the pictures below, you know I am.  For the bra I was inspired by a webalbum of another Dutch lady sewing lingerie. I can't link here, because she published the link to her album in a forum that is not open for everyone, but it's beautiful. When I saw how she had used the lace, I decided to try a bit different way of cutting the pieces. The scallop side of the lace is pointing down, instead of forming the top of the upper cup.

The panty is a pattern that I didn't use for quite a while, just forgot about this one I guess, because it's really a nice pattern, self drafted after instructions in a workshop. It can be sewn very quickly, I took me only an hour for the construction. Just what I needed. I had a lot of sewing plans, including a mini wardrobe, but work is coming in between. Not complaining, just a fact. And this is the reason too I'm not commenting or reading reviews a lot at the moment, just too busy (I have over 80 unread items in my blog reader, which is the count since this weekend). But I do try to keep up a bit, and need my sewing for taking away the stress.

If you're interested in lingerie patterns, stay tuned. I'm trying a new pattern from an independent pattern company, which publishes the patterns with both English and German instructions.

  2. Polka dots are so cute! Did it take an hour for the set or just the panties? Both are gorgeous.

  4. Love the polka dots. I've never made bras--I may have to take a class in that. I have made panties and slips though. I may have missed it--where do you get your lingerie fabrics?

  5. I think you're finally inspiring me to try my hand at making bras. I'm off to read your reviews, etc. Your Picasa photos are SO inspiring!

  6. I like the polka dot fabric! I am intrigued! What pattern do you use? I took a bra making course a few years ago but have not followed up making others, but after I discovered your blog, well tonight, I order the chanelling.

  7. What a nice set! I like the combo of whimsical fabric and lace--usually you don't find those two together.

  9. You really make the most beautiful lingerie. The thought of getting a bra to fit well seems daunting to me and I've yet to find any fabrics here that are as exquisite as those that you use.

  11. Hallo Sigrid! Was mich wundert- egal, welchen Schnitt du nimmst, deine BH haben immer einen perfekten Sitz! Ist das der Schnitt von Marinique Linegrie? Wie findest du ihn? Hat er auf Anhieb gepasst oder musstest du was ändern?

  12. Gosh, Sigrid! I LOVE your lingerie. I've said it before and I'll say it again--you should teach a PR class on bra and panty making.

    It would especially appreciated (at least on my end!) in this current state of economic affairs. I have never been motivated to make lingerie before as it seemed so hum drum, but your styles are like classic Victoria's Secret lingerie--but even better! Not only would you have grateful sewers like me, but very happy husbands as well! Really, can you think of it??? My DH would be saying, "Yes Dear! Of course, take as many specialty sewing classes that you want!" ;)
