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.

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!

Lilac/Pink Balconette Bralette & Hipster Pantie Set

Lilac Multi Balconette Bralette Makebra Hipster Bra Making Handmade Lingerie Lingerie Making

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I can’t believe the year is already drawing to a close…!

Lilac Multi Balconette Bralette Makebra Hipster Bra Making Handmade Lingerie Lingerie Making

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.

I used two of my favorite patterns: my self-drafted balconette bralette and the Make Bra Hipster Panties.

I pattern hacked the Hipster panties to accommodate for a lace scallop edge on the back leg openings.

The lace was actually not wide enough for the panties, but I zigzag stitched two lengths of lace together using this method that Maddie, Sarah, and Erin have posted about on their blogs.
