The second blouse is almost finished, the only thing to be done is buttons and buttonholes. It’s been in this state a week now, I hope to buy buttons tomorrow so that it can have a final press and declared finished. The third and last blouse for now is being planned, and will have a little lace embellishment.
I’ve been working on some lace things as well and have accumulated a little more lingerie stash by going to Kantje boord in Amsterdam with Valerie and buying online at Lijfgoed. Which was a first for me and a positive experience.
This is what my sewing table looks like, the white blouse fabric on the left, the rest is all lingerie stuff. Addicted? I think so. There are worse addictions…
I’ve used this lace before and it’s one of my favorites. Just another bra.
A detail from the panty with the new lace bought at Kantje boord. They also had the same lace on the bolt. And as I like making bra’s better than making panties, I started with the panty.
The fabrics bought at Lijfgoed, very soft and beaufiful. I look forward to working with them.
Though I intended to buy only light colored, “spring” fabrics, I could simply not resist this lace. There were shoulder straps to match too. Recently I tried on a few bra’s in a department store, and I think this lace or something very close was in the rtw collection. Needless to say I didn’t buy any bra’s.
Now I have to find time to sew more. In any case I plan to sew a lot of lingerie in the next few weeks. I’m not too happy with some of my bra’s. Some are too old, some don’t fit as well as I would like. My body must have changed. So I want to clean out the lingerie drawer and fill it with new sets. Will be fun I hope.
