Some lace to give away

Through several circumstances beyond my control I didn’t manage the deadline for the One pattern, Many looks contest. I had hoped to be just in time with the last blouse I had started and have shown the collar in my last post, but it didn’t work out (again). It’s still unfinished but I plan to finish it soon. In the meantime I used a few spare moments to sew a lingerie set. The colors of the photos I took were mostly horrible through the artificial light, so I will take new photos in daylight.
A sneak peak of the bra. A lovely off-white color with some lilac accents. After sewing this bra and two panties to match, I still have some lace left. I’ll be giving it away! It’s 2 x 40 cm lace (left and right side) with a bit of stretch, a piece of about 50x50 cm of the all over lace fabric, a piece of the shoulder strap embellishment and a bow. It would be enough for a bra and a bit for a panty to match, depending how you would use the lace.
And that’s not all, I have 2 meters of the black/gold(yellow) lace that has been in my stash for a very long time now. I don’t remember how it got there, just that the colors are not me. It’s 15 cm wide and has stretch.
Leave a comment if you would like to be in the draw for it and let me know which one you would like.
ETA: You can enter till Friday. I'll do the draw on Saturday morning (my European time).

Wow Sigrid. I would love to win the lace. You inspired me to begin sewing bras. I'm sorry the last blouse gave you trouble :(

Lovely lace! The best part of winning, would be making some underpinnings as fabulous as yours. If I win, I will be happy to contribute to the cost of shipping.

Please include me in your drawing for a piece of the lace. I'm not really picky when something is free so you can decide. Thanks for your generosity.

Your bras are always tdf Sigrid and the off-white with lilac lace so beautiful! Having participated in your bra sew-along a few years ago it just may be time to sew another one :) the sew-along was such fun and I have made many of the panties since, but no matching sets. Looking forward to the photos of your blouse, it will be lovely I'm sure!

Elinize sağlık güzel olmuş.

pdiddly said...

what a shame you didn't get to finish the other blouse for your one pattern many looks contest.

I would love to say I need some lace, but sadly you are the last person to persuade that I don't have any and need some lol - hope it goes to a worthy winner.

Emma said...

Hi I like the lilac lace because i am going sew à Camisole with à 14 yards old gril. And i think this wil Bé perfect for a girl of that age.
