Other projects

In one of my previous posts I mentioned I was working on other projects besides the jacket. In the past days I did finish a t-shirt and a lingerie set.

The t-shirt is from the above New Look pattern. I made this pattern before and used size 14, which I found to be a bit large. Now I used a 12 and think it’s a bit snug. The difference is the amount of stretch/drape in the fabric I suppose. This fabric has less stretch.

The fabric is a mostly cotton knit that is part of the fabrics planned to use as described in this post. I now used 3 of the 5 fabrics. The pants in the brown was a wadder.

The neckline has a detail I copied from a rtw t-shirt. In that shirt it is placed lower, but the neckline of the rtw is cut deeper as well. In this shirt it didn’t look as good, so I placed it higher.

The pattern has a center back seam, which made it easy to apply a bit more waist definition.

Perhaps I should take out some fabric horizontally next time?

 

And my latest lingerie set, an unusual color combination for me.

I love what you did with this blouse pattern. I tried it once before and wasn't pleased with the outcome. Maybe I'll revisit it. The lingerie set is TDF!! If I send you measurements would you make a set for me? LOL

Gorgeous lingerie! Nice T-shirt too.

The t shirt detail is interesting. I am instantly tempted to try it in a solid. It does not look too small.
The lingerie is beautiful, just stunning.

hilde said...

Very nice to see the finished lingerie set, it is absolutely beautiful!!

Dilliander said...

What a great neck detail, it makes the simple tee unique and stylish. Your latest lingerie project is beautiful as always.

The lingerie is absolutely fabulous! The t shirt is interesting as well. You're good at finding
interesting details that make your t shirts just a bit more than a t shirt. I like the detail.
Christine Jonson has a chart that mathematically enables you to figure out how much ease you need in a knit top depending on stretch. Well it's supposed to but I find it totally incomprehensible. I think that part of my problem with it is that I don't have the same taste in how tight I like my knits. However, Peggy Sagers in her t shirt video (the online free one) shows you a very simple way to determine how to figure how much ease you need for each fabric that suits your likes.

I don't think I have ever commented on you blog, but I watch from afar (Google reader). I am in awe of your lingerie sets. I long for your ability...GORGEOUS!

I love the unusual colours in your lingerie set, amazing work. The t shirt, although you might feel it is a bit snug, is very flattering on you.

The T shirt is such a pretty print and the neck line details are interesting. Another beautiful lingere set. While I probably will never make sets, I have signed up for a bra fitting and sewing class, inspired by the beautiful ones you sew.

Audrey said...

Your T shirt is so pretty and fits so well. And you have made another lovely lingerie set.

Diana 'poetsie' said...

Leuk detail in jouw shirt.
Mooi lingeriesetje!

gwensews said...

Your lingerie is lovely, as always. Your T i pretty too. I'm going to check on the PeggySagers video. I've used the Christine Johnson method of determining ease, too.

Becky said...

The lingerie is lovely! And it's nice to see that t-shirt made up, since I have that pattern in my stash. I like what you did with the neckline.

Elizabeth001au said...

As usual your work is beautiful and inspiring. Im wondering what pattern youve used for the bra? Thanks to your inspiration I have recently gotten into bra making and am very happy with the results. Its quite addictive!

Katharine said...

I like the neckline detail a lot. Vrolijk paasdag!

Myrna said...

That's my favourite t-shirt pattern. I've developed all my t & t versions from it. Looks FABULOUS on you. Love the lingerie set.

Clio said...

What a stunning - and unusual - lingerie set!

Cute top - I don't think it looks too small.

Your lingerie is just jaw-dropping! So beautiful.

Fabulous fit on the shirt as well.

I love the t-shirt and the additional strap. And seriously green is not my color and I turn it everytime you show another one of your awesome lingerie sets!

I love the lingerie set, which pattern is that? thanks. Chantal

stitchedbyme said...

Seriously? You made that lingerie set? How/where would I learn to sew lingerie? I have sewn (more like played with my sewing machines) most of my life, but can't even imagine sewing something like your set.
Thanks for being an inspiration!

You answered my question before I even asked it. I went back to the blog post and off to the right, I saw a button for Tutorials. When I clicked on that button, I saw that there are tutorials for making lingerie! I will be sure to read through them and maybe even give them a try.
Thanks again for your inspiring blog.
