Last year, when I held the Tailor Made Shop 2016 Feedback Survey, a lot of you put in a request for bra kits in fabrics other than lace. In fact, a large number of you left a comment stating that you would like to see more charmeuse kits.
Well your wishes have been heard! Charmeuse kits in six solid colors have been added to the shop! Like lace kits, the charmeuse kits will be a mainstay amongst underwire bra kits offered by Tailor Made Shop.
To give you an idea of what a charmeuse kit looks made up, I whipped up this navy charmeuse Marlborough Bra. I love how elegant this bra looks and I have more plans for charmeuse bras in the coming months!
Happy 2017 guys! I can’t believe it’s already the new year! To start it off right, I made some new underwear for myself!
Today’s post features Cloth Habit’s Lady Shorts! It’s a free pattern by Amy of Cloth Habit and I have no idea why it took me so long to make this pattern. The fit is fabulous and the best part about this pattern is that it’s graded in numeric sizing! This means you can really fine tune the fit.
This is the first time I’ve used narrow elastic trim to finish the waistband and leg openings. Verdict? Love it! It’s soft to the skin and less fussy to sew than picot elastic or FOE.
Kat made a stunning floral/lace self-drafted full band bra with handmade hook and eyes! You can read more about her project here. If you have been wanting to make your own hook and eyes, check out her comprehensive Self Fabric Bra Clasp Tutorial!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I can’t believe the year is already drawing to a close…!
Today’s set is actually a Christmas present to myself. This lace is one of my favorites in my personal stash. I’ve hoarded it away for over two years, because I couldn’t find a stretch lining color that was a good match or a good complement for the unique lace color.
Recently, I came across a rosy pink stretch mesh that looks amazing with the lace so I finally cut into it.

Craftsy is running a holiday sale from now through Monday December 26th, 2016 11:59PM MT. All classes are under $20. If you’ve been meaning to start sewing lingerie, now is a good time to stock up on the following classes.
Hi guys, quick update today. This aqua set features the Madalynne 8229 Underwire Bra with vertical seams and Evie La Luve’s Bella Panties. Since I’ve made them before, there’s not much to say about them. I just wanted to share photos of them in case people are curious about how this lace looks made up.
A couple of things abut this pattern. It’s definitely not beginner friendly! I think the instructions are kind of sparse, so I would not attempt this pattern until you’ve made a few bras. The other thing is that there are no built-in seam allowances or elastic allowances–you have to add them yourself.
I can’t comment on the fit until the recipient tries on the bra, but I love that it’s really different from any bralette pattern out there currently. I have plans to make more of this view because I like how it integrates the lace scallop edge on the straps and side cups.
Of course, I couldn’t resist making matching Bella Panties as well.
I’m back today with my second iteration of the Edena Bralette. You can find the first iteration here.
For this version, I used a black non-stretch lace that I had in my stash and lined it with black bra tulle. I also used black satin elastic for the straps and the strappy detail. I opted to use a fun lavender picot elastic for contrast.
Some changes to the pattern: I increased the height of the neckline by 3/8″. I also increased the bottom band height by 3/8″ so the bralette now provides more coverage overall. I also added the extra strappy detail. Because it’s pretty much a known secret by now that I’m a sucker for strappy details.
I pretty much adore this bralette to death. I’ve made a third one and have a fourth one in the works right now.
