My new lycra fabrics and lace that I bought at Kantje boord last week. The grey on the right has silver threads through it whith a little shine, the lace is perfect with it, though the picture does not reflect that.
And this is the bra I'm making, still not completely finished. I gave my garden priority this weekend. And there were some other priorities too.
Not my usual fabric/lace combination, but I've seen something like that (really don't remember where and when) and just wanted to try. The plaid is lycra!
Kat was very kind in her comments, suggesting that I should give a class. Well, that's not exactly on my mind, as I'm not a sewing teacher, and more important, I'm not a fit-expert. But it brought back an idea that I have since quite a while: how about a lingerie sew-along, for example in May/June? What I'm thinking of is the kind of sew along that Marji organized last year for a coat. In a separate blog, only to be viewed by participants? Making a panty and a bra? Perhaps draw the panty I showed in my post of last week to your own measurements? I think the number of participants must be limited, to keep the feeling of a sew-along and for me to be able to follow and help along the way.
A difficult point is that fabrics and notions are so difficult to get for a lot of you. There I could perhaps help too, but shipping costs for a package outside Europe is at least 11 Euro (for a standard, untrackable package).
What are your thoughts on this? Would you be interested in such a sew-along? What would you expect it to cover and do you have any other suggestions?
