Pre-Sale! Tailor Made Shop Fabric Collection in Scuba & Mesh

Pre-Sale! Tailor Made Shop Fabric Collection in Scuba & Mesh

Happy Monday guys! I am super excited to announce that the first ever Tailor Made Shop Fabric Collection is available for pre-sale! There are 11 print options available in Scuba. The Tossed Raspberry Floral repeat (my favorite repeat in the entire collection) is available in a heavy weight stretch mesh.

***PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PREORDERING***

Pre-Order Dates: November 20th – November 27th, 2017

Shipping Dates: December 11th – December 15th, 2017

Any other items ordered with the Tailor Made Shop fabrics will ship between December 11th and December 15th, 2017 as well. If you need the other items sooner, please place a separate order.

I usually like to run a pre-sale for 2 weeks, but the holidays are coming up and I am trying very hard to beat the holiday shipping deadlines that USPS has imposed! You can check out the USPS holiday deadlines here.

You can preorder the fabric collection here.

Also Available for Pre-Order: Red/Gray Floral Stretch Mesh

I also have good news for Tailor Made Shop customers! I am bringing back the red/gray floral stretch mesh. This mesh sold out quickly when I stocked it back in August. It is also available for pre-order with my fabric collection. The same pre-sale and shipping dates will apply to this mesh.

If you missed out on this back in August, here’s a chance to get some!

You can pre-order the red/gray floral stretch mesh here.

To celebrate the launch of my first fabric collection, I am running a giveaway on Instagram! Head to my Instagram page to learn more about the details of the giveaway. The winner will receive 1 YD of the Tossed Raspberry Floral Stretch Mesh and 1 YD of Scuba Knit in the print of their choice.

Now Available on Spoonflower! Tailor Made Shop Fabric Designs

Tailor Made Shop Fabric Designs Now Available on Spoonflower!

Happy Wednesday guys! I have an exciting announcement to make! My first ever fabric collection is now available on Spoonflower.

I use the word “collection” very loosely. There’s no common theme or unifying color scheme.

But it is a happy byproduct of my 30 Watercolor Challenge! I started the watercolor challenge just to get myself drawing again and never did I imagine that I would be able to build a fabric collection from the artwork!

This first collection features a number of floral prints and one random feathers print. The prints are available on Spoonflower in 15 options and you can choose to print it on 20+ different fabrics plus wallpaper and giftwrap!

You can shop the designs on Spoonflower here.

The designs will also be available in scuba and mesh on my site very soon. Stay tuned!

Finding the Perfect Lingerie Dress Form // Part One: Researching and Choosing a Dress Form

Finding the Perfect Lingerie Dress Form: Researching and Choosing a Dress Form

**11/9/17: Sale alert! PGM Dress Form is having a Thanksgiving sale currently. You can enjoy a 10% discount + Free Shipping (free shipping only apply to local USA continental over $100) with promo code 10percentTKS on their website.**

Hi guys! As some of you probably know, I purchased the PGM 602E Lingerie Dress Form a few months back. I have a review for that dress form coming soon, but I wanted to share with you my journey to finding a lingerie dress form before settling on the PGM form.

Everyone’s criteria for an ideal lingerie dress form differs, so I hope my research will aid you in your quest for finding the form that is perfect for your needs!

For me, I’ve been thinking of getting a lingerie dress form for photography/display purposes.  I enjoy taking flat photos of my finished lingerie projects, but I think they look better on a body or a dress form. Photographing lingerie on a body or a form gives you a better idea of the cut and style lines of a particular bra or underwear pattern. Since I’m unwilling to model my lingerie projects, the next best thing is to buy a dress form.

I will also be using the dress form for pattern reviews, because it’s useful to have a model with consistent measurements modeling all the different patterns out there.

In this post, I will cover the following topics:

  • What I’m Looking for in a Lingerie Dress Form
  • Various Dress Forms I’ve  Considered and Their Pros and Cons
  • Which Form I Ended Up Choosing and Why

What I Made: Evie la Luve Willow Bras in Wrap Around Style

Evie la Luve Willow Bra Wrap Around View

Happy November guys! I can’t believe how quickly October has flown by!

I want to take a moment to thank you everyone who took the time to complete the Tailor Made Shop 2017 Feedback Survey! The survey is now closed, but I will be reading all your feedback and taking notes for 2018 planning.

One of the things that many of you asked for are more bra kits for Indie Bra Patterns. Well I have good news! I put together bra kits for the Evie la Luve Willow Bra in the Wrap Around Style!

The Classic View can be made with my regular soft bra kits, but the wrap around view requires a bikini clasp and an unusual number of rings and sliders. To save you the trouble of hunting down the hardware, I put together kits for the Wrap Around View!

The two Willow Bras I have pictured here today are made from those exact kits.

Evie la Luve Willow Bra Wrap Around View

I have a pattern review of the Willow Bra in the works, but today I will just share a few notes about the construction and fit of the bra. I actually made the Willow Bra up in the Classic View first, but I didn’t get a chance to photograph them for the blog. A friend visited me in September and she ended up taking them with her because they fit her really well!

For reference, she wears a 32C and the Willow Bra in XXS fits her perfectly with no alternations needed. I made the Classic View in Scuba and in a medium-heavy weight confetti dot stretch mesh for her.

Evie la Luve Willow Bra Wrap Around View

For the wrap around views, I made the from scuba and lined them entirely in stretch mesh. All the seams are neatly enclosed.

I only made two very small changes in terms of construction. One, I used a 3/8″ picot plush elastic for the bottom band. A 1/2″ picot elastic would have been too wide for size XXS.

Two, I secured the back strap extension to the top and bottom edge of the bra back. The instruction has you attach the back strap extension just to the top edge of the bra back.

Other than that, this was a quick easy and satisfying sew!
