One of the projects I worked on last week. Started and finished in one day with time to spare in the evening. And did you know that you don’t see red when wearing a white garment? My friend Valerie hadn’t heard of this. I showed it with a white t-shirt which was not very thick and she was convinced immediately. It didn’t show through!
Detail pictures first. The inside
When worn it looks an all lace bra in the front, but it isn’t. The lace has virtually no stretch, so a band that has some stretch is needed.
The side/back panel is interfaced with powernet, to give it the stability I like and need.
The finished set. The fit is perfect, though talking with Valerie who sews lingerie too made me change the pattern slightly for the next one, to get my straps a bit more to the center. I’m quite used to this placement, but will try to see and feel the difference.
Matching panty, I made two, excactly the same. Not a lot of lace left to play with.
The pattern for the bra is the Sewy Rebecca, with a few changes for fit and a downward hike in the back. All fabric and notions came from a kit from Kantje Boord in Amsterdam. The panty is a much used self drafted pattern.
